Fringe is almost over. Wait, wait, don’t cry — you still have all weekend to pack in an insane amount of shows. So use your time wisely. Here are some new picks for you, followed by our can’t-miss collection of critic’s favorites having their final runs today.
DancEthos with the West Short Piano Trio (Dance Place: Cafritz Foundation Theater, 1:15 p.m.) — A showcase from several independent choreographers, local company DancEthos’s eponymous show takes us on a tour of contemporary dance styles, with bits of poetry and spoken word. This is its final performance, so make some time for it. “I would have gladly sat through a show longer than 90 minutes,” our Devon Thorsby raved.
I Feel Funny: True Misadventures in Stand-Up Comedy (Tree House Lounge, 4:45 p.m.) — Local stand-up comedian Adam Ruben gives us a tour of his worst gigs, and his thoughts on comedy as a force for good. “A performance that will leave you smiling, if not necessarily in stitches,” our Amanda Palleschi says.
Mine/Field (Dance Place: Cafritz Foundation Theater, 5:15 p.m.) — All your data are belong to Glade Dance Collective in this ambitious interpretation of online privacy through physical movement. The company incorporates actual “user data” from the audience into its performance; look for a full analysis from Glade member Emma Dozier later on today.
#sexts (Logan Fringe Arts Space: Trinidad Theatre, 6:30 p.m.) — This hip comedy from the Coil Project celebrates the awkwardness of textual relations. We got Artistic Director Erik Harrison to grant us a tour through the show’s making — it’s sort of like seeing your attractive colleague naked!
Also: Tonight is your last chance to catch some of our critic’s favorites, including Neda Wants to Die, The Last Burlesque, POWER! Stokely Carmichael, Never Never, Belle and the Beasties, Domestic Animals, and Wombat Drool. Some of these shows have already sold out, but there may be last-minute tickets available at the door. You’ll never know if you don’t try.
