ARS NOVA + LIGHTNING ROD SPECIAL: UNDERGROUND RAILROAD GAME
Williamstown, 8 p.m.
Created by Jennifer Kidwell & Scott R. Sheppard, Directed by Taibi Mager Named one of the top ten theatre experiences of 2016 by the New York Times, Underground Railroad Game is a vivid, piercing piece of experimental performance from Philadelphia-based company Lightning Rod Special. Over its rapid-fire 75 minutes, the piece toes the line between sketch comedy show and excruciating American history lesson, set in a middle school classroom. Lightning Rod Special’s raucous performance earned them the 2017 Obie Award for Best New American Theatre Work, one of the highest honors in the field. By tearing down barriers of political correctness and challenging the contemporary liberal interracial dialogue, Underground Railroadexcavates hidden—and often ugly—truths about race, identity, and historical memory. 62 Center

DANCE SYMPOSIUM
Williamstown
Williams College Dance Department will host a symposium that approaches dance and performance as an interdisciplinary method, site of inquiry, and medium of learning. We will bring together scholars and practitioners who use a movement-based practice from Williams College and beyond to examine how embodied practices can provide insightful perspectives into issues relevant to the humanities and sciences. In framing dance/performance” broadly as both staged and everyday acts of representation, the engagement with disciplines as diverse as sports, martial arts, theatre, music, sciences, arts, and anthropology offer a lens for contextual analysis and techniques of bodily practice. It will also highlight the various ways that “dance/performance” can enable collaborations that may be thought of as non-traditional or non-normative. Keynote speaker Janet O’Shea is Professor of Dance Studies in the Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance at UCLA. She is the author At Home in the World: Bharata Natyam on the Global Stage and co-editor of the Routledge Dance Studies Reader (second edition). Her current research is about Filipino martial arts and cognitive benefits of embodied training. Dr. O’Shea is completing an ethnographic memoir entitled Risk, Failure, Play: What Martial Arts Training Reveals about Proficiency, Competition, and Cooperation. 62 Center

LIGHT: WEEKEND YOGA INTENSIVE WITH DEVIN KIBBE
North Adams, 6 p.m.
March 9 - 11 Over 16 hours of yoga, lecture, meditation, and discussion to deepen your yoga practice. This weekend is intended for you to fall in love with your practice all over again. As practicing yogis we find walls, plateaus, dark spaces that we didn't think were there when we first go that 'yoga high' after our first class. We will use different practices including yoga nidra, meditation, flow yoga, and even strength training to change our relationship with fear and these blocks. The end of winter can feel monotonous and like there's not enough light, but it's a great time to shift and prepare, and remember the light that is always within. We hope you will join us. Space is limited. Read the details on our website.

GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR
North Adams, 8 p.m.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor began in Montreal in the early 1990s, and during five years they swelled from a bedroom trio to an earth-rattling, wall-of-sound experience with as many as 14 live musicians. The band’s first batch of records before a nine-year hiatus included 2000’s Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven, which is hailed as a modern post-rock classic. Their newest, Luciferian Towers, offers a melodic maturity that transcends even as it rumbles in the shadow of capitalism, climate change, and political violence. MASS MoCA
