On the ticket in the coming weeks: modern dance, locally made artisan gifts, surreal puppetry, fine jazz, and one of the area’s longest-running food festivals.

DANCE

Turkish Dance Duo in Troy

In the lobby of EMPAC in Troy on October 24 at 7:30pm, the Turkish experimental dance duo Taldans will deliver their intriguing work “Dolap.” The piece utilizes dancers Filiz Sizanli and Mustafa Kapla and, get this, a full-sized refrigerator, which the pair moves and manipulates through a series of seemingly impossible choreographed movements. Dance scholar and curator Noémie Solomon will facilitate a conversation with the artists following the performance. Refreshments will be served. Tickets are $20 ($15 students). https://empac.rpi.edu/

PERFORMANCE

Quintron and Miss Pussycat in Kingston

If you’ve yet to catch the New Orleans-based music/puppetry duo of Quintron and Miss Pussycat, your chance to correct that woeful discrepancy falls on November 1, when the oddball act visits BSP Kingston for a 7:30pm performance. Featuring the enigmatic Quintron on organ and self-made electronic instruments and Missy Pussycat herself holding forth with her collection of quirky handcrafted puppet characters, the pair stages legendarily bizarre DIY productions at underground rock clubs and festivals around the world. The troupe Three Brained Robot and band Ereptile Dysfunction open. Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. http://bspkingston.com/

  • Follow that Spark: Brooklyn Designer Turns Farm Visit into Book that Gives Back

    In August, Brooklyn-based digital designer Michelle Layne Lawson read an article on Chronogram's website about Tomorrow, Tomorrow, a 150-acre farm animal sanctuary in Columbia County that was struggling to raise funds to stay afloat. Within a few days, Lawson was on her way up to Hudson to visit the farm. And what began as casual cute animal pics turned into a coffee table book that is being sold to raise funds for the sanctuary and a renewed sense of creative vocation. Don't mind us, we're just sobbing over here.
