Our writers obliged. Among other things, in these pages you'll read about a new trend that we believe will be breaking out on dance floors across the Triangle this fall; a fitness craze that's beginning to catch on in our area; controversial, politically themed plays that promise to add heat to water-cooler conversations; readings by young fiction writers who haven't seen a rule that didn't need to be broken; and visual artists whose work will be eliciting gasps from Triangle gallerygoers.
Next week--for those who believe that a rich morsel of cutting-edge art is best when washed down with a glassful of more traditional culture--we'll provide you with a comprehensive list of the season's happenings. But for now, fasten your seat belt and get set for a visit to the leading edge. These events might be a little more difficult to find, but our writers are so convinced that they're worth the effort, they've done most of the legwork for you.
