It’s time again for one of the most exciting showcases of local choreographic performance, Momentum: New Dance Works from the Walker, and we’re quite excited about this year’s creators/ performers. This first weekend of shows, that run today through Saturday, features State of the Moon Address, a “visually and sonically textured movement experience” from Hiponymous (duo Renée Copeland and Evy Muench who have been doing a lot of high profile pieces in the short time they’ve been performing together) and Luke Olson-Elm’s ensemble piece Broken that uses his fluid dance style to examine how group dynamics lead to alienation, vulnerability, and doubt. We heady, but always engaging and exciting stuff. 8 PM. $20. —Anthony Brown
