VECTOR: HABITUS

MANBITES DOG THEATER, DURHAM

THURSDAY, JAN. 8–SATURDAY, JAN. 17

Anyone who has felt pangs of jealousy when reading about Sleep No More, Punchdrunk's celebrated interactive theater installation in a block of New York City warehouses, should spend an evening in Habitus. Vector's Jon Hass, a visual artist, and Leah Wilks, a dancer and choreographer, use motion-tracking technology to transform Manbites Dog Theater into a living installation—a set of multimedia-enriched tableaux vivants through which the viewer moves freely. You'll pass through a series of thematic rooms in which dancers perform: Perched upon a pedestal, Thea Jaworski suffers video projections. Zoia Cisneros submits to the rigors of training. Nicola Bullock takes a turn as a political lounge singer. It's a consideration of how societal and governmental rules affect your individual existence—and the different kinds of violence inherent there. This installation is a teaser for a finished performance in March, currently seeking crowdfunding (www.indiegogo.com/projects/habitus). 7, 8 and 9 p.m. Thurs.–Sat., $10–$15, 703 Foster St., Durham, 919-682-4974, www.manbitesdogtheater.org. —Chris Vitiello
