Entangled in a dense field of 5,000 black nylon wires, a single body moves, incandescent and strange. Animated by Arno Veyrat’s perception-altering lighting, the wires ripple and shimmer as Ito cleaves and falls against them, then floats delicately in space, radiating an eerie preternatural beauty that’s not quite, or perhaps more than, human.
Dinner outing beforehand.

In the Bloodgood Gardens (behind 256 Clinton Ave)
In a ranch house deep in Texas Hill Country, a once tight-knit group of friends reunites to bury one of their own. But as they look backward through their lives, it becomes clear they've lost more than just their old pal. In this haunting new paly from Anne Washburn, the boundaries between then and now grow disarmingly blurry as these estranged friends confront their slippery past.

Tom & Eliza is a play in one long breath - two characters use rapid-fire language to chronicle their entire relationship, mercilessly withholding nothing. A teethy battle of wills that centers on obsessions with bathing and book-burning, this play propels the audience from an ordinary first date toward the end of civilization.

Hope identifies with Beyoncè. Love doesn't return Death's emails. Time swigs Stoli in his tighty whities. In this postmodern pop opera, the buttoned-up allegorical figures of 17th-century court entertainment search for meaning amid celebrity crushes, Lucite chairs, and gym culture.
@ BAM Opera House (30 Lafayatte Ave)
On a stage dusted with sand, androgynous talc-covered bodies-with heads shaved and corsets clinched-trace graceful arcs through the grains, inscribing time. Sankai Juku, the incomparable Japanese dance troupe, returns to BAM for the first time in almost a decade. Typifying the Butoh tradition, which was born from the ashes of Hiroshima, Umusuna probes the ravages of history to recover our original bond with the four elements.
