A Chinese dragon and lion dancers will parade up 14th Street next weekend.

Constellation Theatre Company will host the “magical celebration” on the sidewalk in front of Source (1835 14th St. NW) May 8 at 12:30 p.m. to promote its newest play, “Journey to the West.”

The theater company in January hosted a “pony pop-up” to promote its production of “Equus,” the infamous play involving horses, ritualized violence and sex.

More information on Sunday’s performance in a press release from Constellation:

To promote their latest performance, Journey to the West, an ancient Chinese legend about a Buddhist monk in search of sacred scripture, Constellation Theatre has a host of fun happenings. This Saturday local artist Rose Jaffe will create a giant mandala with sidewalk chalk (April 30th, 12-3 p.m.) and on Sunday, a Chinese Dragon as well as Lion Dancers will make their way up 14th Street, transforming the sidewalk into a magical celebration (May 1st, 1 p.m.). All events will take place in front of Source (1835 14th St., NW).
