Philosopher Rachel Jones, choreographer Britta Joy Peterson and visual artists PLAKOOKEE will present a creative professional performance in response to work on view in the gallery of the Greater Reston Arts Center (12001 Market St.) on Thursday from 6 – 7 p.m.

The event, called as a creative response, allows presenters to comment on work they have viewed through an innovative presentation. The performances are followed by an open discussion.

October’s creative response is held in conjunction with the Now Be Here project. The event is free and open to the public.

Jones, whose background is in philosophy, is interested in using art and literature to explore the intersection of feminist philosophy, queer theory and critical race theory.

Peterson is a dance artist who specializes in contemporary dance. She is also the director of dance at American University.

PLAKOOKEE is a creative collaboration between Justin Plakas and Rachel Debuque, designers and artists who combine sculpture, installation, constructed realities and new media to create art.

    Odds of seeing Mike M and Constitutionalist in the audience?

    • Mike M

      As for me, . . . significantly lower than seeing you on the stage in a tu-tu doing an interpretive dance dedicated to the plight of the downtrodden.

    • The Constitutionalist

      Excuse me, but it’s THE Constitutionalist, if you’re going to refer to your superiors, please do it correctly.

      Also, why are you so obsessed with me?

    • Onereally

      I’m offended you didn’t include me in your insult….

  • One LibIknow

    I’d rather have a root canal. What a bunch of crap!

  • Constitutional Conservative

    Why are certain Republicans so obsessed with pretending America is a white nation? It’s a large nation with different types of people one (sic) it. Get over it already…
