And the Kan-directed BeckettButoh performance, which takes place at the Black Box Theater on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus, also defies description. Renowned writer Samuel Beckett's existentialist, minimalist text (from Quad and That Time) has been integrated with traditional Butoh physical vocabulary based on image scores. What does that mean, exactly? You'll have to see it to find out. BeckettButoh opens tonight at 8 p.m. and continues with additional shows tomorrow at 2 and 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 to $15; call the box office at 303-245-4798.
Fri., Dec. 14, 8 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 15, 2 & 8 p.m., 2007
