Apr. 24-May 19: Pas de Deux
Love isn't easy, but it's a dance that many of us take part in. In honor of its 25th anniversary, The Studio 2ndStage presents Pas de Deux: highly-physical one-act plays from Canada and New Zealand. In Daniel MacIvor's 2-2 Tango, James and Jim stumble through the experience of being a modern, adult couple. In Skin Tight by Gary Henderson, the long-married Elizabeth and Tom exchange words, blows, and kisses as they toe the line between passion and peril. The set of plays runs through May 19.

Apr. 25-Jun. 16: Energy. Ecstacy. Edge
Starting tomorrow you can see a new exhibit at Adah Rose Gallery in Kensington. Energy. Ecstacy. Edge brings together paintings by Alison Rash and Chris Trueman. Less is more in Rash's work, which focuses on simple lines, forms and colors. Meanwhile, Trueman's bold, layered paintings communicate scenes that are simultaneously dreamlike yet mechanical.
