“This March, The Z presents She’s a BrickHouse – a full month of FREE performing arts offerings & panel discussions celebrating art & stories by and about women. Get the inside scoop on the first steps towards a museum dedicated to Women’s History in our nation’s capital. Then SEE IT HERE FIRST: Enjoy a new musical excerpt about Frances Perkins, the woman behind FDR’s New Deal. Reflect on Broken Dolls, a new play about the lives of women experiencing human trafficking. Delight in an evening of 20th Century songs through a 21st Century lens. Participate in a community art project born of this celebration of women!
When the pandemic hit, The Z’s Community Liaison, Sibel Galindez, had time to think about something that had been gnawing at her. Watching one of her favorite classic Hollywood films, It Happened One Night, she was struck by the outdated and sexist portrayal of the female character. It was something she had not noticed until that very moment and inspired a podcast entitled It Happened One Night: A Feminist Frozen A-ha moment.”

In March we welcome Paper Aliens. The Paper Aliens mothership is currently docked in Virginia Beach, VA. This quintet is charged with channeling the quintessence into this dimension through the use of Jarvis Griffin’s soaring vocal lines, sweet guitar licks and a thumpin’ rhythm section, augmented with some serious chops on the keys. Prepare to be transported by their spacey, soulful, jazz-infused funk-rock sound.
