Yes, you read the title right. Cirque du Soleil, the act known for its dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment, is coming to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library this Friday, August 10, to promote its new show “Totem,” opening in the DC-area next week.
Festivities of the family-friendly event will include street performers, face painting, and a juggling workshop. Totem masks and clown noses will be given away, and guests will have an opportunity to win tickets to see Cirque du Soleil.
This will all take place in the library’s Great Hall from 1-3pm. And the public is invited to enjoy it all for free.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library is located at 901 G Street NW. It’s easily accessible via Metro — both the Gallery Place and Mount Vernon 7th Street-Convention Center stations are short walks away.
