WASHINGTON — A weeklong street arts festival is being planned for May 6-12 around Washington that will include jugglers, political puppet theater and a circus-punk marching band.

The Kennedy Center announced a festival schedule for "Look Both Ways: Street Arts Across America." It will include performances at Eastern Market, Half Street near Nationals Park, Farragut Square, the Old Post Office Pavilion and elsewhere.

At the Old Post Office, a nighttime performance will feature San Francisco's Project Bandaloop. The dance company uses surfaces of buildings as a base for its choreography.

The festival is part of an arts access program to give audiences a chance to engage in the arts in more ways and more places.
