    Theorist Festival

    Dance, dance, and dance. And live music and films and more dance. And of course that's live music for dancing to, and films about dancing. And dance workshops and master classes, as well, because this is the latest edition of the annual Theorist Festival from that Amy Morrow and her restless cadre of kinetic savants – this time, 44 artists from across the U.S., México, Canada, India, and the Middle East – galvanizing the Zilker Hillside Theatre and other venues for four days and nights in the wake of ACL. See website for details, yes – and be prepared to move yourself around.
    Thu.-Sun., Oct. 18-21. Prices vary ($250 for an all-festival pass).
