Emily Dickinson, in “I heard a Fly buzz,” describes the room in which her subject dies as “Blue – uncertain – stumbling Buzz.” Is she mixing up the senses because life is ending, or because she can actually hear the color blue? The notion that a sound can manifest itself as color, or that any one sense can trigger the experience of another is called synesthesia, something the Cre.Art Project explores in its VISUALITY concert. Pairing chamber music with live theater, dance and video projection, the Spanish arts collective strives to make you see the sound by presenting nine different works that flow into one another. As the stage becomes a canvas and each movement changes slightly to fit the confines of the space, the experience becomes more immersive. Will the the buzz of a winding tune make you see blue? The performance begins at 8 p.m. at Artisphere, 1101 Wilson Blvd., Arlington. $18. (703) 875-1100. artisphere.com.
