    The Social Distancing Festival

    This is an online community, as playwright and unstoppable force of creative nature Nick Green informs us, and it's been activated to "celebrate and showcase the work of the many artists around the world who have been affected by the need for social distancing that has come about due to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)." It's not Austin-based, this virtual and ongoing festival of all kinds of performance arts, but damned if there aren't a few talented Austinites among the eclectic (and ever-growing) mix.

    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.

    Dimension Gallery: On the Plight of the Primrose

    In the early 1900s, the evening primrose was central to the debate over the cause of evolution and its inherent mutations. In the early days of March 2020, Austin-based sculptor Laura Latimer has collected rubble from local construction sites to provide the foundation for a fanciful, botanical habitat that contemplates how future mutants might survive in the fragmented ecosystems resulting from nonstop urban development.
    Through June 6. free.

    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.

    Lora Reynolds Gallery Online

    Rarefied and clever, oblique and brilliant, sometimes blatant as a slap of vivid beauty upside your skull, often just what your rods and cones are craving by way of stimulation. Natalie Frank? The Haas Brothers? Tony Marsh? Yes, and more.

    Comedy

    Virtual Hideout: The Free Fringe

    What's this? There could be shows with wild genres or themes, actors trying on new characters, or performers who've never played together before who just wanna jump in and see what happens. But there could also be improvisers tied up in rope, improvising dogs, or 1000 other things: The Hideout's Free Fringe has been unfettered IRL for years, and it's gonna take more than Zoomification to reel this weekly lunacy in from the edges.

    Virtual Vortex: Last: An Extinction Comedy

    Here's a rebroadcast of the Vortex's original apocalyptic spectacle, conceived and directed by Rudy Ramirez, devised by the ensemble. It's an end-times tale about a group of sketch comedians wandering the desolated earth in search of an audience and basic living supplies – not all that unlike the present, eh? And did the Chronicle review this when it was first staged? Yes – yes, we did.
