' legendary open-mic performance gig – for which that Kerri Lendo is at least partially to blame
– provides a venue for things you probably wouldn't see anywhere else. Funny, bad, good, weird, dance-based, or just what-the-hell, all styles of performance are welcome, and it's hella entertaining. Fri., Dec. 6, 10pm
Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company presents a new, original, full-length dancework in which "one miscalculation, one imperfect calibration, one random happening ignites a series of events that leads to the breakdown and eventual demise of Nonet." Must have been a perfect calibration, though, that led to this performance featuring live music by line upon line percussion(!) Dec. 5-7. Thu.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 3 & 8pm. $17 ($12, students, seniors).
A collaboration between Glass Half Full's amazing Caroline Reck and that golden-throated banshee of weird brilliance named Cami Alys? Hell, we don't even need to know that "renowned Victorian lady scientist Amelia Wetherbeaten and intrepid lady explorer Eleanor Dangerbottom have traveled to the nether creases of the earth and run their voluminous skirt hems over the dusty bottoms of creation to present you with their collection of human (and inhuman) travel curios." (But: Whoa.) And Jay Byrd and Noel Gaulin are abetting the ladies' scientifico-bawdy endeavors? Bonus! And Connor Hopkins is doing some of the puppetry here? Bonus! Oh! All my tubes and wires! And careful notes! Such as: RECOMMENDED. Thu.-Sat., Dec. 12-14, 8pm. $10-20.
