Lemp Legends: A Ghost Story

Fri., Nov. 16, 8 p.m. and Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

It's no exaggeration to say that the Lemp family shaped St. Louis. Adam Lemp not only introduced lager to the city but began a brewery to produce the great quantities of it demanded by St. Louisans of the mid-nineteenth century. The Lemp Brewery's Falstaff beer outsold Budweiser near the dawn of the twentieth century. The next generation of Lemps married into both the Pabst brewing family and a railroad supply family, further concentrating their wealth. But the family is mostly remembered today for its slow destruction, which was brought about by Prohibition and a series of suicides. Big Muddy Dance Company explores the Lemps in the dance concert Lemp Legends: A Ghost Story. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (November 16 and 17) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.thebigmuddydanceco.org). Tickets are $25 to $35. $25-$35

Dances of India: The Forgotten Ramayana

Nov. 16-18, 7 p.m.

Every year Dances of India presents a fully scripted and narrated dance concert based on a beloved Indian tale or an adapted Western story. This year's performance is something slightly different. The Forgotten Ramayana: The Tale of Urmila, the Sleeping Princess is based on an obscure story from the Hindu epic The Ramayana. In it Princess Urmila willingly sacrifices herself to save her beloved husband, her brother Prince Rama and sister-in-law Princess Sita. Urmila's sacrifice takes the form of a fourteen-year slumber, and it's almost for naught. While she slips deeper into the realm of dreams, the ten-headed demon king Ravana abducts Sita. Can Urmila escape her endless dreaming? Can she even tell the difference between the real world and the dream realm after so long abed? Dances of India recreates the story at 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday (November 16 to 18) at the Skip Viragh Center for the Arts (425 South Lindbergh Boulevard; www.dancesofindiastlouis.org). Sunday's show will feature the student dancers and kids in the first half and The Forgotten Ramayana in the second half. Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20

What does it mean to write your own life-story? For twenty-five years, Wayne McGregor has been making choreography that interrogates life through the experience of the body, moving intelligently in space and time. His practice has been far-reaching and sought out collaborators from a diverse range of artistic and scientific fields to investigate the nature of embodied cognition. Now McGregor turns his attention to the body as archive, as he embarks on a cycle of choreographic portraits illuminated by the sequencing of his own genome. $35-$69
