Performance Artists to Invade Rosslyn This Weekend

SUPERNOVA logoA large-scale performance art festival is coming to office lobbies, rooftops, parks and other public places in Rosslyn this weekend.

The SUPERNOVA Performance Art Festival, sponsored by the Rosslyn Business Improvement District and produced by Pink Line Project, will take place from Friday, June 7 to Sunday, June 9. Events range from an “art sports competition” to a large-scale grass painting project to an “outrageous” dance party.

“SUPERNOVA is a multi-site, multi-day, transdisciplinary, anti-conventional festival that will include and not be limited to: performance art, live art, body art, relational art, action art, happenings, actions, interventions, works-as-yet-undefined, and those never-to-be defined. Or whatever you want, or refuse, to call it,” according to the festival website.

More than 75 local, national and international artists will take part in the festival.

Performance schedules for Friday, Saturday and Sunday are posted online. Tickets to Saturday’s “Big Bang Dance Party,” which is being held from 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. at Artisphere (1101 Wilson Blvd), are $15 and available online.

With the exception of the dance party, all events are free and open to the public.
