Performance Art Night X: All-Star Weekend 

When: Fri., March 11, 8 p.m. and Sat., March 12, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: Free
417-1445

Very Normal Productions celebrates its 10th collection of unsafe-at-any-speed behavior in darkened rooms with two nights of outré aesthetics, a workshop in slapstick and clowning, and a dance for all survivors. Friday night, Chris Lueck's (literal) corporate clown seeks enlightenment among the samurai in a section from his 2006 New York Fringe Festival one-person show, "i want to be MUSASHI: a clown samurai fantasy." On the same bill, Ishai Buchbinder, whose previous exploits were captured in the Canadian film Traveling Medicine Show: Apocalypse, mixes sound looping with prerecorded dialogue, and Dana Marks and host Tony Hughes somehow demonstrate that "Eden is Dancing."

Saturday night is for the All-Stars, with some of the best acts from the last nine shows, including Russell Hames, Elliot Turnbull and Black Poetry Theatre. After the show, there's a performance art dance party featuring Dylan Grewen's band the Riff. It's pass the hat at the performances, but reservations are required for Saturday's workshop: e-mail clowningworkshop2011@gmail.com. —Byron Woods
