Tickets are $12 for general audience and $5 for students, seniors and artists. For more information and tickets for this performance, see tricklock.com.
Seeing live theater or dance performances can present challenges for those with autism, sensory challenges or small children. Keshet's founder and artistic director, Shira Greenberg, conceived and choregraphed Alice, an Adventure of Wonder and Wondering with just those challenges in mind. Catch a sensory-friendly performance of this family-friendly production loosely based on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland on Saturday, Nov. 16 at 2pm at Keshet Dance and Center for the Arts (4121 Cutler Ave. NE). Tickets are $30 for general audience, $25 for students, seniors and military, and half-price for children under five. For more information and tickets for this all-ages performance, see keshetarts.org.
Artists Marisa Demarco, Dylan McLaughlin and Jessica Zeglin used streamflow data from the Rio Grande to compose the sound art performance There Must Be Other Names for the River. On Saturday, Nov. 16 at 7pm six singers, each representing a data point on the river, will perform the score at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1702 Fourth Street SW) to ask if we can hear the river as more than a resource. This event is part of the regional collaboration Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande. For more information on this free, all-ages event, see 516arts.org.
