Weekend Best Bets: November 16-18

Friday, November 16

Stealing Art

WHAT: MCAD Art Sale
WHERE: Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Minneapolis
WHEN: 6 to 9 p.m.
It’s an annual tradition, now 15 years old, of trying to spy the work of the next great emerging artist….at a bargain. Or just buying art you really like….at a bargain. This year, MCAD alum Gregory Euclide, who recently finished a new album cover for Bon Iver, is among those selling work. And barcodes on every piece should ease checkout lines. Runs Thursday to Saturday. Admission prices and more at mcad.edu/events-fellowships/art-sale

New Classics

WHAT: Zenon Dance’s 30th Anniversary
WHERE: Cowles Center, Minneapolis
WHEN: 8 p.m.
It’s officially Zenon Dance Company Day in Minneapolis, per Mayor R.T. Rybak, for the simple but astounding reason that the contemporary dance company has maintained its cutting edge for three decades now. In the first of two different programs (the second will be staged next weekend), the troupe premieres two new works and the award-winning “Storm.” Learn more at thecowlescenter.org

Sexual Balance

WHAT: It is She Who I See
WHERE: Ritz Theater, Minneapolis
WHEN: 8 p.m.
Craig Harris, the former executive director of Ballet of the Dolls, debuts his venture into multimedia performance, Interference Arts, with a show about gender imbalance—not just in society but in all of us. Through music by singers like Norah Long, digital illustrations, and theater work created by Paul Herwig, Harris explores the notion that all of us should have a balance of male and female energy.

Man to Mom

WHAT: Leslie Jordan’s Fruit Fly
WHERE: Camp Bar and Cabaret, St. Paul
WHEN: 5 p.m.
Emmy-winning raconteur Leslie Jordan, the self-proclaimed “gayest man I know,” delves semi-seriously into the question of whether gay men become their mothers. Though that’s mostly a pretext for sharing the hilarious, heart-warming story of his long-ago confession to his steel magnolia of a mom that he was foregoing college to become a female impersonator—and how she bloomed in response.

Something to Dance About

WHAT: TU Dance
WHERE: O’Shaughnessy Auditorium, St. Paul
WHEN: 2 p.m.
The ninth season of Uri and Toni-Pierce Sands’s troupe includes the premiere of Uri’s Feather and Bone, about the delicate balance of companionship, set to indie-folk and electronic dub music. Few choreographers create such consistently smart, appealing, ultimately humanist work as Uri, and this evening stands to extend that streak. Learn more at tudance.org
