BLACK IRISH: SHADE | FRIDAY, JAN. 8–SUNDAY, JAN. 10, CARY

CARY ARTS CENTER—"If one could smell color, hear color, feel color and see vibrations in color beyond just seeing the obvious, its SHADE, what would that experience be like?" That's the question choreographer Ronald West asks in his attempt to translate synesthesia, the neurological cross-wiring of the senses, to stage, in his new work for his dance company, Black Irish. As befits a contemporary hip-hop dance inquiry, the other meaning shade has acquired in contemporary culture is also a factor. What would happen if you could throw shade—literally as well as figuratively—at friends, strangers, lovers or exes? William Howard, Justin Mackey and David Lezcano provide the live music. 7 p.m. Fri.–Sat.; 3 p.m. Sun., $10–$20, 101 Dry Ave., Cary, 919-469-4069, www.iamblackirish.com.Byron Woods
