Brian Feldman’s first-ever job was as an actor. His second? Dishwasher at a fast-food restaurant chain. Brian will go to your house and hand wash the dirty dishes in your kitchen sink. Once completed, you will hand him a monologue of your choosing which he will cold read on the spot. Is he a better actor or dishwasher? You decide. Only 10 tickets available (one per show). #DishShow
About the Performer: Brian Feldman is an award-winning performance artist and actor. The recipient of two Arts and Humanities Fellowships in Theatre (2017, 2018) and a Projects, Events, and Festivals grant (2019) from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, a 2011 State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowship (Interdisciplinary), and three grant awards from United Arts of Central Florida (2008, 2011, 2015), he has also been named Best Performance Artist by Orlando Weekly (2008, 2009) and Washington City Paper (2018). Since arriving to Washington, D.C. in 2012, he has presented work in #All8Wards and 28 D.C. neighborhoods. As DCist noted, “In a city that has an advocacy group exploring how to “make D.C. weird” – and is still struggling – Brian Feldman is a shining beacon of eccentricity.” Brian’s work has been favorably compared to Marina Abramović, David Blaine, John Cage, Marcel Duchamp, Tehching Hsieh, and Andy Kaufman, and featured online, in print, on radio, and television. Since 2003, he has presented 300+ performances of 115+ projects at 175+ venues in 25 cities worldwide through Brian Feldman Projects, one of North America’s premiere presenters of experimental time-based art.
