    Arcos Dance: Ether Junk

    In this "staged rehearsal of possible cyborg realities,” the kinetic savants of Arcos use dance to explore how emergent technologies de-center the body and offer audience-participants the chance to assert their humanity in an increasingly opaque technoworld. In-person viewers of each performance will be joined by audiences at other locations screening an interactive livestream of the piece and using their phones to shape the action remotely. Note: This is Arcos, so it's gonna be some kind of fierce and weird and wonderful.
    Aug. 30-Sept. 8. Wed.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 2pm. Donations accepted.
