ISOLATED ACTS

Thursday-Sunday: Red Eye’s Isolated Acts series always offers up bright new ideas in dance and performance. This weekend’s promising lineup has a double bill featuring Hannah Kramer and Chris Yon, pictured. Kramer has danced for many local artists and now she takes on the role of choreographer in “writ Large,” a quartet with a mysterious premise about intimacy and the future. Yon’s “Swaggerprance, to keep from crying” was created for the International Society of Swaggerprancers, a fictional group Yon says must use movement to convey their thoughts, since they have no words to describe them. (8 p.m. Thu.-Sat., 7 p.m. Sun., $15 Fri.-Sun. (pay-as-able Thu.), Red Eye, 14 W. 15th St., Mpls., 612-870-0309. www.redeyetheater.org.)
