, Dance Theatre — Adin & Ferguson
A year ago, choreographer Chase Adin and composer Chris Ferguson collaborated on Case Number 346: Sarah Mayes, a show that mashed up a whodunit with modern dance and ballet and ominous electronic music. Now the pair, who met while studying at USF, return with a program that includes four new works plus a piece that was honored at the American College Dance Festival. Moving Ethos will also perform. Shows are at 8 p.m. today-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Studio@620, 620 First Ave. S, St. Petersburg. $15, $20. (727) 895-6620; studio620.org.
This is Gorilla Theatre's celebration of the life and works of Aubrey Hampton, the company's co-founder who died in May. Jessica Alexander, Scott Isert, David O'Hara, Chris Jackson, Joanna Sycz and others perform scenes and songs from Hampton's plays at the theater, 4419 N Hubert Ave., Tampa. Shows tonight at 7 and Friday night at 8 are pay what you can; Saturday is a gala, with a party at 6:30 p.m. and show at 8, for $50. (813) 879-2914; gorillatheatre.com.
