Wednesday-Friday: This month, Butoh performer Gadu took the stage at the Southern Theater covered in white body makeup and surrounded by a plastic bag full of balloons, as part of an evening of work presented by four choreographers. This week, you can expect something even more experimental as Gadu acts as a guide for the audience to be a part of the theater experience. In "Kara/Kara-Empty/Shell," Gadu collaborates with performer and visual artist Manasari Kawahara in a show that will rely on audience participation. Not only will you help create a space for the performers, but you'll also shape the point of view and make sound for the show as well. (7:30 p.m. Sept. 30-Oct. 2. $24. Southern Theater, 1420 Washington Av. S., Mpls. 612-340-0155, southerntheater.org.)
