Mar. 29-30: PSY
Prepare to be amazed. Montreal-based circus and acrobatic troupe Les 7 Doigts de la Main is performing PSY at George Mason University's Center for the Arts in Fairfax tonight at 8 and tomorrow at 2 and 8 p.m. The theatrical event travels into the human psyche and explores mental conditions such as amnesia, paranoia and addiction through the physical language of circus arts. Tickets for this family-friendly performance are half-price for children up to grade 12, when accompanied by an adult.

Mar. 29-Apr. 4: Everybody Has a Plan
Everybody Has a Plan opens today at the Angelika Mosaic Film Center in Fairfax. Viggo Mortensen stars as twin brothers in this Spanish-language film set in Argentina. When a law-abiding, yet jaded pediatrician  adopts his recently-deceased twin brother's identity, he gets more excitement than he bargained for. The film is rated R for violence and sexuality and runs through April 4.
