The evening of May 19 is set for 17 performing organizations (15 total acts) to create a charity showcase to remember at Clowes Hall. Here’s our list of what’s not to miss.
I’m willing to bet soul-music legend Ray Charles never expected his music to be the backbone of a contemporary modern-dance company. But Nicholas Owens Dance Company has done just that.
From straight-up rock nostalgia to crowd surfing over blaring bass-drops, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be thumping over Memorial Day weekend.
Month of May festivities will ramp up to performances by rockers Sammy Hagar and Sublime With Rome, followed by the eardrum-shaking beats of NERVO, Dillon Francis, and Hardwell in the infield during the Indy 500 race itself.
The annual showcase’s 20th-anniversary bonanza at Clowes Hall also boasts a varied lineup of stalwarts.
New acts go on every five to 10 minutes at this charity-aiding showcase that also serves as an ADD-addled arts lover's dream.
The executive art director of experimental theater group No Exit will present her eccentric version of The Nutcracker at the Irving Theatre Dec. 7–21. We brought her out of her shell before the show.
"I grew up seeing The Nutcracker over and over, so I was excited to direct my own take. I thought, instead of Clara’s sweet little dream, I’ll make it a fever dream—one of those creepy delusions you have when you’re a kid and sick. They’re not exactly nightmares. They’re just weird."
