    A Hair Can Split the Difference

    BLiPSWiTCH presents their seventh original evening-length work, a performance that situates itself and the audience within the realm of feminine agency. 13 dancers will visualize themes of strength, self-actualization, and unapologetic fallibility that mirror the work of equine-facilitated physiotherapist Linda Kohanov. Through mythological and historical representations of the horse and the feminine, this work indulges in the analogy of these two species moving through the world. Original score performed live by Cajun artist Kelli Jones and Austin musicians Josh Kavanaugh and Zack Wiggs.
    Wed.-Sun., March 29-April 2, 7pm. $25 and up.

    Arya [inside]

    Arya’s relationship with music mirrors the winding path she took from Belgrade to Austin, where she began her career in 2019. Away from the constraints of collegiate culture shock and loneliness, the singer-songwriter’s artistic prowess finally expanded. “Something in me flipped, I was ready to come out of my shell and my life changed 180 [degrees],” the naturalized Texan says.: While Arya boasts a classical piano childhood and a jazz degree from Texas State, the storyteller channels somber pop-R&B in uncovering her life’s lies and epiphanies. In her latest single, “i’d rather lose you,” the Icarus incarnate scorches her wings against lingering curiosity, flying above feathery keys, strings, and pulsating trap beats. Vulnerable tracks like “Bed” relay raw depictions of depression that resonate with listeners, mumbling, “It’s the end of the world and I’m laughing.”: “I’m just pouring my heart out to everyone – friends, family, strangers,” declares Arya, adding that her courage grew as she shared more of her worldview. Now, the Serbian songbird embarks on a brighter journey of self-healing. Her first headline indoors at Stubb’s, with $10 admission or free entry for ticket holders from Weyes Blood’s sold-out outside show, will mark her largest performance to date, including choreography, a full band, and songs from her upcoming EP. Due later this year, the project will chronicle the nuanced stages and outcomes of a relationship.: “It still has that darkness because it was written at a time where that’s how I was feeling,” explains Arya. “But it has this newly found power as well.”

    St. Nicholas

    In this darkly comic one-man performance written by Conor McPherson, a theater critic relates tales of his life among the vampires. Last time 'round, the local media called the show "hilarious, harrowing," "a must-see," and said "Hyde Park Theatre's Ken Webster holds the audience utterly spellbound." And it's true: He totally fecking does, and this brilliant and brilliantly twisted show will make your shadows dance a goddamn hornpipe for having witnessed such strange beauty. Look, our own reviewer thinks so, too.
    Thu.-Sat., March 30-April 22, 8pm. $21 and up.
