One of the most respected showcases for local performance, the Momentum: New Works Dance Festival returns with another diverse and exciting lineup of creators debuting their boundary-pushing work. Each weekend features two of the four selected performers—the first weekend features pieces estrogendystopia/euphoricdysphoriA and StagNATION, weekend two has crystal, smoke n’ spirit(s)… and Atlantis 13 to give you a flavor of the (post)modern styling. Adding to the fun, the audience includes a who’s who of the performance scene eagerly awaiting the show. Thursday, July 11th-Saturday, July 13th, Various Times. $20 advance, $25 door. —Hitara
