Flying Solo

Courageous performers take the stage without parachutes

The theater folks at The Filling Station are giving you a lot of ones. Solo shows, that is. The third annual Solofest showcases works by single performers, both tested and brand-new. These risky lone wolves are onstage with no one to share the limelight (or the blame, if things go haywire). Pieces range from autobiographies to complete fiction. Elements being investigated include women’s empowerment, a park ranger’s lecture, an uncensored Marie Antoinette and too many more to name. Complete descriptions can be found at fillingstationabq.com. Show your support over the next two weekends.

Get into the Groove

This is Your Brain on Dance

Great strides have been made in understanding the connection between dance and the brain since the mid-1980s when researcher Madonna Ciccone postulated that “you can dance for inspiration.” Get into the grooves (and folds) of your brain with the latest research as The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science brings contemporary theories on the impact of dance on the brain to the dance floor this Friday, April 19 from 6pm to 10:30pm for This is Your Brain on Dance. In addition to the dancing and brain-using, there will be a cash bar, TED Talks in the planetarium, food trucks and a farewell celebration for Cretaceous king of the dance floor Stan the T-Rex. Tickets are $15 at the door ($10 for museum and dance club members) for this 21-and-over event.
