An Evening of Performance Art w/ Emily Francisco

516 1/2 8th St.  SE
Washington DC

Emily Francisco constructs situations that manifest in response to personal and physical understandings of limitation and loss. Her work is not destructive, though it involves deconstruction. She pushes the limits of how much an object can withstand, while exploring how things can transform.

Next Saturday, April 20, 7 – 8pm, Emily will host a series of performances.

The night will open with a classical cello performance featuring David Ross utilizing a bow that not only plays the instrument, but also sources a live radio feed. It will conclude with a performance with Emily playing a toy piano constructed in an enclosed space that will slowly flood.

Emily’s work is on view alongside pieces from Jenny Sawle and Ashleigh Werner for our April exhibit Pia Mater. Read more about the show:
