    Suga

    Jason Phelps & Co. and Double Edge Theatre present this solo theatre piece by Travis Coe as the latest in the Rude Fusion series. It's an investigation of freedom and the bounds – personal, artistic, societal, and political – one must break through to achieve that end, with Coe, here directed by Stacy Klein, revealing all the aspects of himself – as queer, Afro- Caribbean/Latinx, and American – to find the path to sing, fly, and run … toward freedom.
    Wed.-Fri., March 4-6, 7pm. $15-30.

    Akirash Online

    Sure, Austin's Olaniyi Rasheed Akindiya aka AKIRASH has an exhibition at the Carver Museum right now – and the place is closed, of course. But this Lagos-born artist also happens to have one of the most robust websites around, though you'll need a mighty big screen to get the best effect of his huge and colorful mixed-media creations and performance pieces.

    grayDUCK Gallery Online: Point of Origin

    Sarah Sudhoff's experimental exhibition takes cues from the connections between sound and human emotion, here realized with suspended sculptures, sound installation, and debossed wall works that draw upon the artist's personal observations, cartography, and the mechanics of helicopters – especially those copters involved in the nearly 300 flights completed in just one month for Houston's Memorial Hermann Health System. Take a virtual tour here.
