    Shen Jun Movement Effect: Another World

    Dancer/choreographers Shen Jun and Ellen Bartel stage a powerful, music-enhanced show of memory and persistence, Jun portraying the ways his late mother's love has sustained him, Bartel depicting a community of individuals longing to belong someplace, anyplace that is stable and their own. Audience members are encouraged to bring photos, flowers, and significant objects "that help you connect with the memory of people you continue to love, even after they have gone."

    Comedy

    Date or Die

    Six real comedians. Three actual blind dates. They don't know each other ... yet. No – srsly. Come revel in the delightful awkwardness of people trying to woo each other for your amusement. And you choose which winning couple goes home with actually valuable prizes. Hosted by that Carina Magyar.

    Visual Arts

    The People's Gallery

    You want a true reflection of the creative goodness that goes on in this town, citizen? As far as the visual arts are concerned, City Hall's People's Gallery nails it to the wall (in a manner of speaking) with another amazing collection of local work – more than 100 new pieces on display – from a panoply of masters and emerging artists alike. And we reckon Friday's opening reception will be sufficiently delightful to even be worth the hassle of finding a parking space – now that's a recommendation!
    Reception: Fri., Feb. 23, 6-9pm

    Visual Arts

    Wally Workman Gallery: Malcolm Bucknall

    A chameleon-like eclecticism has characterized his work to various distinct periods of art-historical influences and beyond, but the common thread in Bucknall's imagery is an animal-human mix. It's a vivid personal mythology that we've reveled in before and are excited to see the newest manifestations of here.
