Rorschach Theatre returns to KLECKSOGRAPHY, an annual event that brings together six theatre companies and more than sixty artists (including six filmmakers) to make something unimaginable. Inspired by the ink-blot test for which Rorschach Theatre was named, all participating artists will be shown a single, distinctive piece of visual art.
On Saturday, June 22 this single image explodes into wildly different visions: twelve plays and six films will showcase the aesthetics of some of DC’s best small theatres, including Rorschach Theatre, Theater Alliance, Solas Nua, Longacre Lea, Flying V Theatre, and We Happy Few as well as American University.
This event is sponsored in part by Destination DC
