A MESSAGE FROM BEVERLY COSHAM Chair, RCC Board of Governors

Our publication schedule presents us with lovely juxtapositions every year—you are always reading the program guide for the upcoming season right in the middle of the current season. As you explore the beautiful pages ahead, the mid-July temperatures are sizzling and our summer activities and programs are in full swing. For many, just contemplating the fun of crisp fall outings and signature Reston experiences like our Multicultural Festival in September is the perfect cure for hot and humid weather. A singular activity we hope you will jump into right away is the We Make Reston/INSIDE OUT Project. We hope people who live and/or work in Reston will submit a black and white photograph of their face between July 15 and August 9 for this exciting public art project. The expression on your face should be prompted by the way you feel about how you “make Reston” the community it is. Photographs will be then be selected for exhibit at Lake Anne Plaza beginning on the Saturday of our Reston Multicultural Festival. The photographs will be enlarged into two-foot by three-foot posters and will be displayed all over the Plaza for the celebration and weeks after. We want to see and feel the essence of our community’s strength—its incredible diversity. Reston has long been a community that embraces everyone and welcomes differing perspectives. As we examine the nature of how diversity is expressed in Reston, we will also be embarking on examination of difficult contemporary issues through dialog and engagement over the fall, winter and spring months to come. There will be conversations about diversity, disproportionality (the over-representation of minority groups in juvenile justice processes and the under-representation of them in academic success stories), and equity. It is our hope that the entire community will be involved in these conversations and that we can continue the Reston traditions that make our community resilient and successful for everyone. If you are interested in being involved, please let us know by contacting us through RCCContact@fairfaxcounty.gov. Fall is a season of many delights; the lineup ahead in these pages includes favorite celebrations of Halloween and Thanksgiving; excursions to places of interest both near and far; the launch of another fabulous entertainment season in the CenterStage; and opportunities to achieve greater health, learn new skills, or meet new friends. I hope to see you out and about with Reston Community Center!

A MESSAGE FROM LEILA GORDON RCC Executive Director

Welcome to a brand new RCC Program Guide! For several months we have worked together to revamp the look of our major publication so it is easier to use and visually exciting for our community from its first pages to the index. We eliminated pages of forms that most people were downloading from our website or picking up and filling out in person at our Customer Service counters. The color used in our front pages in the past has been extended to the entire book. Event announcements are interspersed with the sections of like offerings for ease of reference. As is our practice, all the photographs of people in our publications are pictures of you—our patrons. We hope you like our “new look” and let us know your thoughts about it. You will also notice that some of our pricing for Non-Reston participation has changed. We have been involved for the past two years in deep examination of our fee structures. The fee comparison chart of our drop-in and rental rates is on the next page. We have looked at program pricing as well every season to be sure it is aligned with our subsidy policies. In seeking ways to maximize cost recovery, we determined that for programs that typically are not full after the priority Reston registration period, we could establish pricing at rates that are less than double the Reston cost to encourage Non-Reston participation and thereby reduce the burden of the taxpayer investment in RCC offerings. We continue to double the price for all our programs that generate waitlists; we are committed in those cases to serving Reston patrons first and foremost. This upcoming fall, watch for invitations to participate in our efforts to gather information about your preferences for leisure-time and cultural pursuits. As we explore how to engage even more of our community with our offerings, we’d like to know about your interests and how you pursue these activities. Our process will be available in an internet environment to make it easy for people to respond conveniently. Thank you in advance for taking the time to contribute.

Board of Governors

I hope you enjoy the new Guide, its offerings and the opportunities to be involved with your family, friends and neighbors in Reston experiences. There are countless options in this exceptional place for enriching your life and building community— enjoy and engage!

September 22: INSIDE OUT: The People’s Art Project (2013) This fascinating documentary tracks the evolution of the biggest participatory art project in the world. The project encourages people to take what is “inside” them and turn that “out” to face the world and connect others to ideas, feelings, and their humanity. Travel the globe with French artist JR as he motivates entire communities to define their most important causes with incredibly passionate displays of giant black and white portraits pasted in the street. In capturing the process, Alastair Siddons creates a glowing testament to the power of image and the role that art can play in transforming communities. This special film will precede the opening of the We Make Reston exhibit which will debut at the Reston Multicultural Festival on September 26. This movie is presented in collaboration with the Initiative for Public Art – Reston (IPAR). IPAR seeks to inspire an ongoing commitment to public art and create a new generation of artworks in Reston. Thanks to RCC’s support, IPAR developed this program to present exceptional public art projects. Visually stimulating and thoughtprovoking, the films in the series are being shown to foster a community conversation about public art.

October 27: Enter the Fawn The unlikely collaboration between a veteran choreographer and a young actor with cerebral palsy delivers astonishing proof that each and every body is capable of miraculous transformation. As Tamar Rogoff trains Gregg Mozgala to become a dancer, they discover that her lack of formal medical training and his fears and physical limitations are not obstacles, but the impetus for their unprecedented discoveries. Join choreographer Tamar Rogoff, and principal Gregg Mozgala after the film to discuss their amazing process. This movie is presented in collaboration with the Washington West Film Festival.

November 3: Impossible Light On March 5, 2013, San Francisco’s skyline was transformed by an amazing sight: 25,000 LED lights that, for perhaps the first time since the 1989 earthquake, caused people to pay attention to the Bay Bridge instead of her iconic sister, the Golden Gate Bridge. How did this happen? The story behind the making of The Bay Lights – a project whose very “impossibility made it possible” – answers that question, revealing the drama and courage of artist Leo Villareal and a small team of visionaries who battle seemingly insurmountable challenges to turn a dream of creating the world’s largest LED light sculpture into a glimmering reality. This movie is presented in collaboration with IPAR.

Welcome to the 2015-2016 Professional Touring Artist Series

Something happened to me when I was 19 years old that changed my life forever.

Paul Douglas Michnewicz Director of Arts and Events

Ticket Sales Dates Saturday, August 1 The Box Office will be open from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. for sales of Professional Touring Artist Series tickets for residents and/or employees of businesses in Small District 5.

Saturday, August 8 Tickets will go on sale to the general public and online.

I was given a free ticket to see True West by Sam Shepard starring John Malkovich and Gary Sinese; it was a new play at Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago. It’s a modern Cain and Abel story – two grown brothers who want to kill each other. I was in the front row center. Now I had seen a lot of plays and been in them and even directed a few too. I knew that a play wasn’t real life. This play was brutal; not physically so much as it was emotionally brutal. Those brothers really knew how to destroy each other. At first I wanted to walk out, but then I thought “No way, one of them will still be dead at the end and I did nothing to stop it.” But I had to make it stop. I thought I would get up and walk onstage. Then they would have to stop the play. If I walked onstage the play would stop and they would stop destroying each other. I literally had to grip the handles of my seat to keep from jumping onstage. Of course, the play ended and they took their curtain call and no one died. But during those hours, the theatre itself faded away. I had a dual consciousness: one where I was seated in a chair in a theatre, and the other where I was witnessing a potential murder. The desire to bear witness to another human being is in our DNA. The performer can flop or enthrall, but either way, you participated. You could be called to testify. You were there. This year’s Professional Touring Artist Series brings us many opportunities to bear witness. From the hilarity of Mutts Gone Nuts to the special Veterans Day event Beyond Glory starring Stephen Lang; from the inspirational harmonies of Black Nativity to the sublime poetry of Harold Pinter as presented by film actor Julian Sands. This show was directed by John Malkovich – bringing me full circle to my Chicago epiphany about the power of theatre. Come bear witness with us!

Silks, dyes, and spices traveled by camel, horse, and yak-drawn carts to the Mediterranean Sea, where they spread out to the west, bestowing wealth and prestige, forever changing Europe’s palates and preferences. But traffic also traveled east. Tango in Tehran? La Cumparsita in Kabul? Join internationally renowned QuinTango and Argentine bandoneonist Emmanuel Trifilio for a Silk Road journey to where the tango beat lands in Damascus and Istanbul.

Richter/Uzur Duo

Beyond Glory

Brad Richter, guitar & Viktor Uzur, cello

Tuesday, November 10, 8:00 p.m. $25 Reston/$35 Non-Reston

Friday, November 13, 8:00 p.m. $15 Reston/$20 Non-Reston

Beyond Glory is adapted from Larry Smith’s stirring book and presents the stories of eight veterans from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, rendering first-hand accounts of valor which resulted in the nation’s highest military award, the Medal of Honor. As a tribute to fallen soldiers, Lang performed the show on military bases, and gave a command performance on the floor of Congress.

This duo has been featured regularly on Performance Today, America’s most popular classical music radio program. Their signature repertoire pairs exquisite originals with blazing improvisations and iconic works by composers such as Bartok, Gershwin, Rimsky-Korsakov and Saint-Saens, as well as Freddie Mercury, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin.

Lang is most familiar to audiences as the vile Colonel Quaritch in Avatar. Beyond Glory enjoyed a celebrated run on Broadway and has been around the world. We welcome him to Reston in honor of Veterans Day.

Special Reston Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Celebration Performance and Residency Back by popular demand, Anna Deavere Smith returns to Reston after she activated our community with her electric performance and dialogues last year. Best known for crafting one-woman, multicharacter plays about American social issues, Smith has been awarded the 2013 Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize, one of the largest and most prestigious awards in the arts, as well as the National Humanities Medal. The MacArthur Foundation honored Smith with the “Genius” Fellowship for creating “a new form of theatre – a blend of theatrical art, social commentary, journalism, and intimate reverie.”

“…the most exciting individual in American theatre. “

Anna Deavere Smith From Rodney King to Michael Brown Sunday, January 17, 8:00 p.m. $25 Reston/$35 Non-Reston Ms. Smith has been listening to people across the country from all walks of life for the last several years, using Walt Whitman’s idea “to absorb America” as an inspiration. To illustrate her goal of bringing “people across the chasm” of what she calls the “complex identity of America,” Ms. Smith slips in and out of character during the course of her presentation, recreating a diversity of emotions and points of view on controversial issues.

Julian Sands in A Celebration of Harold Pinter

Mr. Vaudeville and Friends!

Directed by John Malkovich

The Great Vaudeville Radio Hour With Mark Brutsché

Saturday, April 2, 8:00 p.m. $20 Reston/$30 Non-Reston British actor Julian Sands is frequently seen worldwide in films, on stage, and on television. He has appeared in over 100 films including: The Killing Fields, A Room with a View, and The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo. On television, he is best known for his role in 24 but has also been seen in Smallville and Dexter. In 2005, Mr. Sands was approached by the Nobel Prizewinning playwright and poet Harold Pinter to prepare a set of Pinter’s poems for a special presentation in London. Working closely with Pinter, he was granted a rare insight into his personality, life, and work. This collaboration evolved into a wonderfully humorous and fascinating solo show directed by John Malkovich, which was nominated for a 2013 Drama Desk Award.

Sunday, April 3, 3:00 p.m. $5 Reston/$10 Non-Reston Buddy comes up with the brilliant plan to host a vaudeville radio show, to be broadcast “live” from the theatre! Brilliant, that is, until Buddy finds himself without a proper cast and has to scramble around to come up with enough stage personae and willing audience members to ensure that The Great Vaudeville Radio Hour isn’t a ”Great Big Disaster.” It’s another afternoon of magic, mayhem, and classic Vaudeville comedy that’s fun for the whole family and sure to leave you in stitches.

“This modest, affecting show embodies the notion of the actor as a transparent vessel through which we see the thoughts and feelings of others… “

“Loved it! Fantastic show! Great for kids of all ages!”

What Dreams May Come In partnership with Dance Place

Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?

Wednesday, May 4, 8:00 p.m. $15 Reston/$20 Non-Reston

Wednesday, May 11, 8:00 p.m. $15 Reston/$20 Non-Reston

After exploring large-scale group projects for the last eight years, Nejla Yasemin Yatkin is creating an intimate solo dance inspired by Turkish composers. In this new solo, Yatkin and Enki Andrews experiment with incorporating real-time and pre-recorded video and projections that will respond to the body on stage for a riveting evening of dance and technology.

Cartoonist Roz Chast is a brilliant interpreter of the everyday. Her cartoons depict neuroses, hilarity, angst and domesticity and are loaded with words, objects and patterns. More than 1,000 of them have been printed in The New Yorker since 1978. She is known for her cast of recurring characters – generally hapless but relatively cheerful “everyfolk.” The editor of The New Yorker David Remnick has called her “the magazine’s only certifiable genius.” Her newest book for adults is Can’t We Talk about Something More Pleasant? – a book that uses her characteristic wit to chronicle her relationship with her aging parents as they shift from independence to dependence.

“Ms. Yatkin is a magician, telling tales and creating worlds with understated images.”

“The wacky world Roz Chast has created in her cartoons is a parallel universe to ours, utterly recognizable in all its banalities and weirdnesses, but slightly askew... “

The Reduced Shakespeare Company The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) Friday, May 20, 8:00 p.m. Saturday, May 21, 8:00 p.m. $25 Reston/$50 Non-Reston From the high-brow to the low, The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) covers comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes and Shakespeare and Molière (Is Molière funny? Why not?) to Vaudeville and Charlie Chaplin to The Daily Show and Anthony Weiner. Tickets to The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) are far more affordable than tickets to an amusement park, but you’ll come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness. From cavemen telling “Rock Rock” jokes to Chris Rock and stopping for everything in-between, the bad boys of abridgment leave no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy in 90 rollicking minutes. As one would expect in an examination of the History of Comedy, the show contains occasional strong language and sexual innuendo.

Aquatics General Information

Reston Masters Swim Team The Reston Masters Swim Team (RMST) has been in existence since 1974. The “Masters” team has been at Reston Community Center since the pool opened. Masters Swimming is a national program under the auspices of U.S. Masters Swimming, a nationwide organization dedicated to the promotion of swimming in all its forms. The word “masters” in masters swimming does not imply expertise. It merely applies to age. Masters swimmers must be 18 years or older. Our team has members that range in age from 18 to 80-plus years old. RMST provides a venue for swimmers at all levels and for all reasons. We have fitness swimmers, triathletes and very highly competitive swimmers. At this time we have several members who are national champions (including our 80-plus year old). We have swimmers who swam in high school and/or

college and either continued over the years or want to get back in the shape they were in “way back when.” We also have swimmers who are not competitive but simply enjoy swimming in an organized program. Our indoor season is in the Terry L. Smith Aquatics Center. Terry was a longtime member of our team as well as a longtime member of the RCC Board. Our current coach, Frank Koval, has brought the team to a level of expertise that has seen us compete and win nationally on a regular basis. In the past two years, RMST has come in 5th and 6th respectively in the national championships which bring out about 100 teams each year. We swim Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings, and Saturday mornings. For exact times please check the calendar on our website. Our dues are low and our enthusiasm is high. If you would like to learn more about us, please check our website at www.restonmasters.org.

Reston Swim Team Association (6 – 18 years old)

The Reston Swim Team Association is a yearround developmental swim league open to all swimmers between the ages of 6 and 18. • RSTA’s summer league features nine teams, each with 110 swimmers from the greater Reston area. Swimmers practice almost daily from late May to the end of July and compete in six dual meets, an Individual Medley meet, and a select All-Star meet. • RSTA’s winter program provides developmental clinics and sessions from September through May designed to improve swimmers’ stroke technique and endurance. Whether you are a beginner who wants to become competitive, or a swimmer who wants to improve his or her strokes, RSTA offers a program to suit your needs. Check our website at www.rsta.org.

Pricing RCC reviews its pricing for programs and services annually. Increases in pricing reflect either increased costs or RCC’s commitment to price within a range that both acknowledges the special tax paid by Reston for RCC offerings and facilities and our competitive context of other similar public agencies that offer like programs. If you have any questions or concerns about particular fees, please let us know via RCCContact@ fairfaxcounty.gov.

Aquatics 6 – 12 Years Old Learn-to-Swim: 6 – 12 Years Old The goal of Reston Community Center’s Learnto-Swim Program is to prepare participants for a lifetime of water pleasure and to promote water safety.

SWIM LESSON REGISTRATION INFORMATION AND TIPS The swim lessons offered by the RCC Terry L. Smith Aquatics Center are among the most popular classes at RCC. To maximize the learning experience please read and consider the following points:

Placement • Use the skills placement chart located in the front of each age cohort section. • If you are still unsure of the correct class, please contact the Aquatics Service Desk at 703-390-6150 for advice. • A one-on-one skills assessment test may be requested by contacting the Aquatics Service Desk. Skill assessment testing is scheduled based on the patron’s availability and is recommended to be done well in advance of each season’s registration start date. • When enrolling siblings online, we recommend you have a printed copy of the various class days/times handy to help you synchronize the classes (either your mailed copy of the program guide or download the PDF file from our website for reference).

Duration of Enrollments • Repetition of each level’s skills is key to graduation. The advice we offer is to stay at the same lesson level for the entire season. • Anticipating graduation to occur earlier than after repeat sessions may result in an interruption of the learning cycle. • Students enrolled in the wrong class level will be refunded in full.
