(Oct. 6-9) Norman
Film, dance and theater gracefully collide today through Sunday at The Kennedy Center in Norman. It’s a tribute to pioneering filmmaker and animator Norman McLaren, who’s best known for his experimental combinations of music and animation. Fittingly, the production features an experimental combination of surprisingly real-looking projected holograms of people interacting with the real live actors on stage.

(Oct. 7-30) Nevermore
For a tribute to another pioneer, Creative Cauldron in Falls Church stages Nevermore tomorrow through the end of the month. The dark musical based on the poetry and short stories of Edgar Allen Poe explores the author’s relationships with the various women who wandered in and out of his life.

(Oct. 7-9) The Ponca Nation of Nebraska goes to Washington
The Ponca Nation of Nebraska brings a celebration of its culture and history to the National Museum of the American Indian this weekend. The Ponca Festival features performances, a Native law symposium, art and cultural objects.
