    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.

    Thriller Dance Workshop, Zombie Walk, and Flashmob!

    Yes, the annual public display of pop-culture affliction is back for another memorable and highly Instagrammable year. Activate your inner zombie and learn the moves of one of the most-requested music videos ever made. The instructional part of this "Thriller" workshop is offered on Tuesdays or Thursdays for four weeks in October, then the fifth week culminates in a huge rehearsal, with both classes coming together (on Tue., Oct. 29, 8:30-9:30pm) for a giant zombie walk down Second Street to dance the whole thing out in the undead heart of Downtown Austin.
