Interested in innovative ways to bring even more life to your botanic garden? Try theater! Join representatives from The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the U.S. Botanic Garden to delve into the worlds of Flowers Stink and The Cerulean Time Capsule, two theater productions that world-premiered at the U.S. Botanic Garden in 2015. Learn about this collaborative process and the logistics of melding live theater with living collections. The workshop will begin with a panel discussion and viewing of production videos, followed by time with production members to make the two plays site-specific for different gardens.
