    Hedwig and the Angry Inch

    Director Dave Steakley and choreographer Abe Reybold bring John Cameron Mitchell's glamorous and rockin' musical classic – about "a fourth-wall-smashing East German rock ‘n’ roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation, trying to find a place to belong in America," of course – back to the Austin stage.

    Lora Reynolds Gallery: Listening Closely

    Where do we come from? Where are we going? Is there a bigger something out there that will always be out of reach? (And what might it mean to try to connect with it?) The artists in this show listen closely to their materials, history, the land, and the stars – and often end up hearing things they did not expect. Bonus: New works by Jong Oh in the Project Room.
    Reception: Sat., Jan. 19, 6-8pm

    The Contemporary Austin: Paper Dance

    This is both a dynamic retrospective spanning 30 years of photographs and sculptures by Janine Antoni and a solo dance performance by the artist developed collaboratively with pioneering dancer and choreographer Anna Halprin. Antoni performs 15 times throughout the exhibition for an intimate audience, exploring the materiality of brown paper and responding to her own artwork within the gallery. (Click here for schedule.) On view during museum hours, the artist and art handlers will pack, unpack, and reinstall the work, before and after performances.
