Picking up where Alison Klayman’s Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry left off, AI WEIWEI: THE FAKE CASE is more explicitly political, reflecting Ai’s battle against the gigantic lawsuit thrust upon him by the Chinese government in an effort to silence him.

American Dance Festival - Two Room Apartment

American Dance Festival – Two Room Apartment - 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

ADF and the Nasher Museum co-present Two Room Apartment by Israeli choreographers Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor. Sheinfeld and Laor have recreated the seminal 1987 work Two Room Apartment, which helped make a name for Israeli dance. This award-winning work, originally created and performed by the male and female couple Nir Ben Gal and Liat Dro, has been reworked as a dance for two men. The duet reflects on their relationship as partners in life and as creators. Both personal and political, the work examines boundaries in various contexts: physical borders, such as between territories or between two rooms, but also non-physical borders, such as the one between life and performance, and the boundaries that the individual sets for himself. There will be limited chair seating available, on a first-come first-served basis, for these performances. Additional seating will be available on the floor, and audience members will also have the option of standing. Performance is approx. 50 minutes.  americandancefestival.org
