Take action

The lowdown -- "Actions to Relate" is an apt title for Maryland Institute College of Art bachelor of fine art candidate Rebecca Nagle's interactive performance. Nagle's audience can select a physical action ranging from "kiss me on the cheek" to "hit me" from pre-printed "action cards," and Nagle will perform that action on the audience member. Through this performance, Nagle hopes to "destabilize the structure of power in the typical art object-viewer or performer-audience relationship."

If you go -- Nagle will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Loads of Fun, 120 W. North Ave. Admission is free. Call 913- 486-0970 or go to loadoffun.net or rebeccanagle.com.

Be `hipnotized'

The lowdown -- Look beyond their sequined costumes, and the Egyptian Sun Productions' belly dancers may surprise you. Dancers in the Johns Hopkins University troupe study such academic disciplines as biophysics and forensic psychology. They specialize in Turkish and Egyptian cabaret. Tomorrow's show is "Hipnotize!: A Night of Mesmerizing and Captivating Belly Dance."

If you go -- Doors open at 7 p.m. tomorrow at Shriver Hall on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. Tickets are $6-$11 . Part of the proceeds goes to the American Breast Cancer Foundation. Call 443-827-1867 or go to egyptiansun.net.

Dancing on air

The lowdown -- With hoops hung high above the ground and flowing fabric that represents ocean tides, Air Dance Bernasconi wants to make people think about the Earth's water systems. Saturday's show at the Baltimore Museum of Art will premiere of "As Above, So Below."

If you go -- Air Dance Bernasconi performs at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive. Tickets are $17-$20. Call 800-838-3006 or go to brownpapertickets.com.
