Famed for their contemporary dance theater pieces that mix impeccable technique with beauty and biting wit, the award-winning Shapiro & Smith Dance premiere a new piece and bring back a pair of favorites from their acclaimed repertory for their latest performance. They'll debut Narcissus, which utilizes a series of mirrors to explore our current digital and real-life preoccupation with selfies and ourselves. Artistic director Joanie Smith created the work, featuring music by Soozie Tyrell of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and New York composer Scott Killian. Also on the program are Dance With Two Army Blankets and What Dark/Falling Into Light. Learn More

Third time I've seen this presentation in the past 10 years or so, and I loved it every time. But, honestly, I could hear a concert version with the chorus and the three soloists--especially the amazing Bradley Greenwald--without the dancing. Some of the dancers seemed shaky and they weren't always on the same beat.
