Yatra-Seeking: Malavika Sarukkai, choreographer and dancer - Baryshnikov Arts Center
Through November 03, 2012 -

The third season of Lincoln Center's White Light Festival continues in November with "The Spirit of the Body," a work by dancer/choreographer Malavika Sarukkai showcasing her exquisite interpretations of South India's classical dance, Bharatanatyam. Accompanied by four musicians from Madras, India.

Les Ballets Jazz De Montreal - The Joyce Theater
Through November 04, 2012 - New York

Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal takes on the sounds, rhythms, and music of the city in Night Box, its high-voltage new piece by provocative choreographer Wen Wei Wang. Combining contemporary ballet with street dance, Night Box explores love, loss, sexuality, and joy. The work is "brilliantly theatrical, in turns witty, poignant and unsettling." (The National Post) Wen Wei Wang collaborates with Montréal fashion design duo UNTTLD to reveal the full spectrum of the city at night—its private spaces, clubs, and streets—against a backdrop of darkness that bathes these spaces in light to evoke a refreshing perspective inspired by urban street life. The program also includes a new work by internationally acclaimed choreographer Barak Marshall, and Zero in On by Cayetano Soto, an innovative piece highlighting the Spanish choreographer's energetic style. Company website: http://www.bjmdanse.ca/ performance schedule Tue-Wed 7:30pm; Thu-Fri 8pm; Sat 2pm & 8pm; Sun 2pm Dance Chat: Wed, Oct 31 ticket price Tickets start at $10!

Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre - Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College
Through November 10, 2012 - Manhattan

Described as "one of the most highly original dance theatre companies in the world," Ireland's Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre will make its New York debut with the U.S. premiere of Rian. Named after musical director Liam Ó Maonlai's 2005 album, Rian is an exuberant evening-length work combining narrative, theater, contemporary dance, and traditional Irish music in a piece that suggests a communal pub gathering.

Morphoses WITHIN (Labyrinth Within) - The Joyce Theater
Through November 11, 2012 - New York

Morphoses returns to The Joyce with the New York premiere of WITHIN (Labyrinth Within) by Swedish choreographer and filmmaker Pontus Lidberg that is inspired by and expands on Lidberg's award winning 2010 film "Labyrinth Within." Playing with perceptions of reality by weaving together film, live performance, interconnected relationships, and music by David Lang, Lidberg creates a mysterious and powerful experience. On stage is a cast of five dancers, including New York City Ballet's Sara Mearns and Adrian Danchig-Waring, who gradually relinquish performance space to the filmed images of Wendy Whelan, Giovanni Bucchieri, and Lidberg himself. Company website: http://www.morphoses.org/ performance schedule Wed 7:30pm; Thu-Fri 8pm; Sat 2pm & 8pm; Sun 2pm Dance Chat: Thu, Nov 8 ticket price Tickets start at $10! (Call JoyceCharge at 212-242-0800 for $10 tickets. All other tickets can be purchased online.)

Mickalene Thomas: Origin of the Universe - Brooklyn Museum
Through January 20, 2013 - Prospect Heights

Brooklyn artist Mickalene Thomas is best known for her elaborate, collage-inspired paintings, embellished with rhinestones, enamel, and colorful acrylics. Her depictions of African American women explore a spectrum of black female beauty and sexual identity while constructing images of femininity and power. Origin of the Universe, Thomas's first solo museum exhibition, highlights recent bodies of work that examine interior and exterior environments in relation to the female figure. Their settings are often inspired by her 1970s childhood.

Materializing 'Six Years': Lucy R. Lippard and the Emergence of Conceptual Art - Brooklyn Museum
Through February 03, 2013 - Prospect Heights

This exhibition is devoted to examining the defining impact Lucy R. Lippard's groundbreaking book Six Years had on the emergent Conceptual art movement. Published in 1973, Six Years simultaneously catalogued and described the development of conceptual art practices in the late sixties and early seventies, and is now widely considered an essential reference work for the period. Using the book's content to structure the exhibition, Materializing "Six Years" showcases the artists brought together and championed by Lippard, and demonstrates how her curatorial projects, critical writing, and political engagement helped to redefine exhibition-making, art criticism, and the viewing experience.

The exhibition will feature more than 170 objects by nearly ninety artists who were working internationally across a range of mediums. In addition to presenting important artworks, the exhibition will convey the political foment of an era that saw both the emergence of Conceptual art and the rise of the Women's Rights, Civil Rights, and anti–Vietnam War movements, and will illustrate the period's experimental impulses through catalogues, artist publications, periodicals, photographs, and ephemera from key exhibitions and events.
