The Center for the Arts explores the boundaries of artistic expression with a weekend of two incomparable shows.

The Joe Goode Performance Group, known for furthering the genre of “dance theater,” takes the stage tonight at 8 p.m. A post-show artistic discussion, featuring the entire company, begins onstage immediately following the performance. The program includes “Undertaking Harry,” a meditation on gender and role models in contemporary society, and the acclaimed “Gender Heroes,” which questions the existence of a genetic predisposition to certain gender inclinations. Both pieces integrate storytelling and voice with dance. Tickets for the Joe Goode Performance Group are $32, $24, and $16.

Chris Calloway and the Hi-De-Ho Orchestra perform Cab Calloway’s Legacy of Swing on Sunday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m., with featured dancer Chester Whitmore. Chris Calloway carries on her father’s legendary Big Band sound and his skatty style of flamboyant jazz by performing such classics as “St. James Infirmary,” “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” “Jumpin’ Jive,” “Between the Devil,” and “Minnie the Moocher.” Tickets for the event are $36, $28, and $18.

All tickets can be purchased through the Center for the Arts. For more information, call x38888.
