SB Dance’s Sleeping Beauty Jan 31 & Feb 1
A story retold many times over, SB Dance’s Sleeping Beauty is far from any Disney version, with an unpredictable narrative and a clever assemblage of innovative artists. Conveying the freaky fairytale through an adventurous entanglement of dance, theater and little dialogue, this warped tale also features live music by pop duo MiNX, along with a score including Sinatra and Scarlatti.

Two nights only and it will sell out • Show starts 8pm • 60 min without interruption
Alien Brothers Photo Exhibit Jan 26 thru 28
Friends since high school 50 years ago, John Brandon and Paul Christean are brother photographers and aliens in their perspective. One looks at the world and sees beauty everywhere. The other finds nothing but absurdity.
