Solarity, a new local theater company, presents a special production of original work written by Lou Clark and Solarity. With a grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, Solarity formed in 2008 with the intention to produce original work with a cast and crew composed of disabled and non-disabled people. Reflections, the company's first production, uses ensemble techniques, movement, dialogue and poetry to tell the story of eight characters struggling to understand the concepts of home and love. The show at the VSA North Fourth Art Center (4904 Fourth Street NW), directed by Clark, runs this weekend only, with performances on Friday, Nov. 13, and Saturday, Nov. 14, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, Nov. 15, at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15.
