Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
The Hirshhorn’s signature After Hours event returns Friday, October 19, with a special program featuring the premiere of a new live show, The World, written and performed by Peter Glantz.
Peter, a performer and director known for his whimsical videos and fantastical performances, takes you on a colorful journey through time and space as he inhabits three traveling characters whose destinations and stories change depending on the reactions of the crowd at any given show. The piece interweaves storytelling, experiments in telepathic communication, and an ever-changing selection of his recent videos, including cartoons for MTV’s Liquid Television, music videos with Wilco and Andrew W.K., and We Can Do It!, an interview show hosted by Lavender Diamond’s Becky Stark with guests like John C. Reilly and OK Go’s Damian Kulash.
Hirshhorn After Hours takes place from 8 p.m. until midnight. Tickets are $25 and available by advance purchase only. For more information, visit http://hirshhorn-afterhours.tumblr.com/ and follow us on Twitter @Hirshhorn and on Facebook.
