Given the madness of 2016, the year 2017 could be a very crazy 365 days indeed. The Vortex Theatre starts us off on the right foot, then, by sending us on an appropriately nonsensical trip down the rabbit hole with Alice in Wonderland. A cast of fourteen—including Angelina Ortiz, Bridget Dunne, Matthew Van Wettering, Christy Lopez, Katie Farmin and Aaron Worley—play multiple roles in this “rowdy, engaging” adaptation. The play times out at 90 minutes, which is a perfect length for families with children. The show runs Fridays at 7pm, Saturdays at 10am and 7pm, and Sundays at 2pm through January 29. Tickets are $10 for children under 12, $15 for students and $22 for adults. (Devin D. O'Leary)
How often do you think about space? Not intergalactic space, but the space between your fingers? The space between you and the floor? The space between you and your work, your friends or those surrounding you? Dancer Silva Laukkanen will be exploring how environment (that space that I mentioned) impacts choreography and the relationship between dancers in the piece Together and Apart at Keshet Center for the Arts this weekend, Jan. 20-22. Laukkanen will be interpreting daily routines like moving through streets and grocery store aisles, hearing a pin drop, the sound of a car driving and more. Tickets for students, seniors and military are $10 and general entry is $15. The Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30pm and the Sunday show begins at 2pm.
