Miss A Columnist

Hannah Walker is a senior at Georgetown University, majoring in English and minoring in Japanese. This mostly means she can justify spending a lot of money on books and sushi. She grew up in New Jersey, which has instilled in her a love of Bruce Springsteen, strong opinions about pizza quality, and a complete inability to pump her own gas. A devotee of stories in all forms, she is an avid reader, tv- and movie-watcher, and playgoer. Hannah especially loves the arts in DC, from Artomatic to Opera at the Kennedy Center to street art in Adams Morgan. Hannah is happy to talk at length about any new books or movies, and jumps at any opportunity to cover cultural events. If you have a Washington, DC charity or cultural event, restaurant, boutique, spa, or salon you would like covered on Miss A, please contact Hannah at hannahrtwalker@gmail.com.

Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam premiered in Montreal in 1996, and since then it has toured across five continents and captivated millions. In December 2010 the tour began its journey across North America, and from November 16th to November 20th you can see it for yourself at the Verizon Center. The performance tells the story of Zoé, a bored young girl who is ignored by her distant and apathetic parents. She feels as though her life has no meaning, and enters the imaginary world of Quidam in an attempt to fill the void of her existence. In Quidam she meets a cast of amazing characters who encourage her to free her soul. The international cast features 52 world-class acrobats, musicians, singers, and characters.

WHEN: November 16 to November 20

WHERE:
Verizon Center
601 F St NW
Washington D.C.
Ph. 202-661-5000
