    Once There Were Six Seasons

    Glass Half Full Theatre's award-winning production returns as a three-part interactive experience that invites audiences to travel the globe and explore humankind’s impact on climate change: Step onstage with the puppeteers to observe ecosystems from the Americas, Africa, India, Asia, and the Arctic and watch as the tiny humans and animals struggle against drought, flood, heat, and violent storms. This complex spectacle is directed by Caroline Reck and Gricelda Silva, features original choreography by Kelly Hasandras, and – listen, it's a true marvel of narrative and object manipulation and will delight you endlessly, even as its global implications send a little chill down your spine.
    Through May 4. Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 7pm; Mon., 7pm. $12-30.

    Dimension Gallery: Unusual Kinships

    The artist Magdalena Jarkowiec knows about unusual kinships, all right. The kinship of fabric to structure, for instance, as evidenced in her oddly humanoid soft sculptures – the enormous one that's long been towering over Dimension Gallery's Paved Garden, for one; and the other figurative creations, somewhat smaller, that have enhanced live performances in this town. And now Jarkowiec's got her first solo show of such sculptures in Austin, featuring a bright array of human/object hybrid forms, dollhouselike installations, hanging portraits of lovers and friends … and all of it rich with her characteristic humor and invention. Recommended.

    grayDUCK Gallery: Misread Signs

    This exhibition of new work and performances by Yuliya Lanina explores the effects of trauma on the human psyche, the exhibition beginning with her signature paintings of collaged, malformed characters that later come to life in a three-channel, immersive animation. You know how some artists can burn pretty brightly? Lanina is gonna be, as usual, on fire. Recommended.

    Guzu Gallery: Realms Apart

    Hark ye, good citizen! Hark, we say, as Guzu Gallery presents the first fantasy-themed art show ever held in their intimate and graphically festooned venue! Behold with eyes of wonder as bold heroes and fell creatures from Westeros to Cimmeria – perhaps, even, from Bas-Lag, Maradaine, or the Vorrh? – travel to this innocuous little sector of the multiverse to take their rightful place on the noble walls of the gallery that's right there in the heart of Austin fandom!

    Northern-Southern: Rebris
