When: Fri., Feb. 13, 8 p.m. and Sat., Feb. 14, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: free, suggested donation of $5



STUDIO 6 AT UNC'S SWAIN HALL—Joseph Megel, StreetSigns Center for Literature and Performance's artistic director, also runs The Process Series at UNC, staging theater and dance works-in-progress. To commemorate the centenary of World War I, he selected the ambitious Geomancy from about 100 submissions. A dance-poetry hybrid, it is based on poems by Elizabeth T. Gray Jr.—best known for her acclaimed translations of Sufi poet Hafiz—and StreetSigns' Elisabeth Lewis Corley. The poetry merges with period texts, from trench songs to field manuals, and video projections of maps and monuments, all converging on the dance interpretation of AGA Collaborative. In the Great War, soldiers' survival depended on their ability to "read" the landscape of the Western Front; Geomancy translates that idea into its own aesthetic language. 8 p.m., $5 suggested donation, 101 E. Cameron Ave., Chapel Hill, 919-364-0535, —Brian Howe
