A few handpicked happenings that might be under your radar (until now).
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18th
@ Yoga Gallery of Healing Arts
>> Group Primal Sounds Session
Get grounded for the weekend with this pay-what-you-can group primal sounds session tonight at Yoga Gallery. Participants will be enveloped by a stream of freeform “root” sounds from indigenous instruments from around the world. Their vibrations will allow you to enter a restful, right-brain state of awareness, similar to meditation, and to go deep within. As the sounds reverberate throughout your muscular and cellular body, they will help you access and repattern the stress and trauma that may be contributing to current problems. Read on for more soothing details.
(7p // pay-what-you-can / $10 suggested donation)
@ Gerald Freedman Theater / UNCSA
>> Side Show, presented by UNCSA
A musical that explores the incredible true story of the Hilton sisters, congenitally conjoined twins who started out as a freak show but became a singing sensation, each struggling to find individuality in a life that must be shared. Read more about the production and the unique challenges it posed for UNCSA student designers here.
