‘Animus’

Opens Friday: Artistic partners Emily Michaels King and Debra Berger mark the centennial of Ingmar Bergman’s birth with a show inspired by the filmmaker’s 1966 psychological film “Persona.” The movie is about a nurse who blurs the line between herself and her mute patient. In “Animus,” a 90-minute one-act that fuses live performance with video and multimedia projections, two women merge identities as the work explores themes such as voyeurism and shame. King and Berger perform with film and video artist Amber Johnson. (7:30 p.m. Fri., 2 & 7:30 p.m. Sat., 2 p.m. Sun., 7:30 p.m. Wed. Ends Dec. 22. Southern Theater, 1420 Washington Av. S., Mpls. $12-$24. 612-326-1811 or southerntheater.org)
