Weekend Picks: Music, Theater And Art
It’s Thursday and the weekend is in sight. Graham Wright, founder and host of Opus Affair, joins Radio Boston for some ideas on how to spend your weekend.
When: Sunday, October 14 at 3 p.m.
How much: $6-$12
More: The Meltdown Incentive will be performing a program titled “Everything is in Fall Bloom.” They live in the hard-to-define world between contemporary classical music and jazz. Each musician in the group — a singer, a violinist, a cellist and a saxophone player — has a background in classical music but also in several other genres. Much of the structure of their improv is built around these sort of curious texts for the vocalist Sara Bielanski. Sometimes she’ll work with a lovely piece of poetry, but she’s just as likely to sing furniture assembly instructions, or a recipe.
When: Friday, October 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 13 at 7:30 p.m.
How much: $10-$20
More: EVET Arts is making their Boston premiere this weekend. They are a physical theater group and they place emphasis on movement as a major form of expression, like in mime, clowning, puppetry or dance. So there’s still spoken dialogue, but it’s on equal footing with movement.
The piece, “Trajectories,” was created around interviews with Iraq war veterans and Iraqi citizens, and part one addresses the experience of a particular American serviceman’s combat experience in Iraq, the second deals with the stories of Iraqi refugees in the U.S., and the third details with the intersection of those worlds. The road map for this work was laid out by local playwright Meron Langsner and former Marine Sgt. Chris Mandia.
What: Industry Event Boston 2012 at Quixote Studios in Allston
When: Thursday, October 11, 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Everyone comes together for an industry-wide celebration with DJs, street performers and plenty of photography.
