May 10-11: For That Which Returns
Mother's Day is this Sunday, and while brunch reservations are filling up, your opportunities for entertainment are still wide-open. At 8 p.m. tomorrow night and Saturday you can check out For That Which Returns, a Mother's Day-themed aerial arts performance at Dance Place in Northeast. Washington's Arachne Aerial Arts and Baltimore's In-Flight Theater join forces for this mid-air event, which is set on top of a suspended, steel weathervane. Three women blend their personal stories with references to Greek mythology in this new piece, which explores the connections between mothers, daughters, and the seasons.

May 10-12: red, black & GREEN: a blues
This weekend you can see red, black & GREEN: a blues by Marc Bamuthi Joseph and the Living Word Project at The Atlas Performing Arts Center in Northeast. The interactive performance blends music, spoken word, film and contemporary dance in a conversation about how urban communities are often left out of the "green" movement.

Music: "Mother" by The Sunset Lounge Orchestra
