3pm: Dan Colen’s Performance, Livin’ and Dyin’
90 Maryland Avenue SW
Please join us for Livin’ and Dyin’, a performance by artist Dan Colen that takes the form of both monologue and dialogue simultaneously. The audience is invited to follow Colen, Roger Rabbit, the Kool-Aid Man, and Wile E. Coyote as they walk throughout the National Mall testing the power of clichés and other pop cultural referents in much the same way that one would test a battery or an apparently unresponsive body for signs of life.
