      Corps Multiple: Seule(s) en Scène

      Three women, but not together. Three women in isolation, witnessed by you, here, as they perform live. This is the new production of multidisciplinary company Corps Multiple, directed by Austin-based French choreographer Sandie Donzica.

      Big Medium: Power, Traps, and Targets

      The newest work of Christopher Blay, described as Police Brut, uses as a mode "the printed shooting target and the ready-made Black Power fist Afro Pick, utilizing codes and symbols as a way of illuminating the narratives of violence, victims of violence, and what it means to bring these stories to the fore." And, listen: The sound installation Feel Me employs a haptic vest and the sound of gunshots. Try it, as they say, try it on for size, citizen.

      Camiba Gallery: Moment Between Stillness and Movement

      This is the fourth solo show for glass artist Rachel Kalisky at Camiba Art, and, if you're already familiar with the frangible wonders she creates from silica and pigments, you won't be surprised. There are fused marvels on the walls here, bold and bright and almost kinetic in their visual impact. "I want to draw the viewer into the art," says Kalisky, "to tempt them not just to look, but to touch, to feel its energy and: emotions."
