Circus Harmony: Accelerando

Saturdays, 12 & 2 p.m. and Sundays, 2 & 7 p.m. Continues through Jan. 27

Circus Harmony's annual January performance has some new features this year. For starters, new acts have been incorporated into the show, including the Chinese Pole (acrobatics performed on a stationary pole ranging from ten to 30 feet tall) and Hoop Diving (increasingly complex tumbling runs performed while diving through a vertical hoop or series of hoops). Perhaps the largest noticeable change from previous years is the accompanying band, which is completely new and making its debut performance during Accelerando, a musical mystery. Two teams of young circus performers will attempt to find a top-secret envelope before their competitors. You can bet there will be many twists, turns and flips as the mystery unfolds. Accelerando is performed at noon and 2 p.m. Saturday and at 2 and 7 p.m. Sunday (19 to 27) at the City Museum (750 North Sixteenth Street; www.circusharmony.org). Tickets are $20. $20

Christine Corday: Relative Points

Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through April 21

Space is deep, to quote Hawkwind, and yet scientists believe all living creatures on Earth contain stellar elements within their genetic makeup. Artist Christine Corday explores this union of humans and the stars in her new exhibition Relative Points, which was commissioned by the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Eleven of Corday's large sculptural forms, which are each made of more than 10,000 pounds of elemental metals and metalloid grit, will be arranged within the museum in a pattern of Corday's choosing. The sculptures, which resemble slightly squashed black marshmallows more than four feet high, are intended to be touched; they're essentially the same base elements as humans, after all. During the course of the exhibit, the shapes will change gradually from repeated contact and the inexorable force of universal gravitational attraction. You'll have your first opportunity to get close and personal with Corday's work at the opening reception, which takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, January 18, at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; www.camstl.org). Christine Corday: Relative Points remains fixed in space through April 21. free admission

Current Profile

Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through March 17

Once reserved for the wealthy and the social elite, portraiture has been democratized down to the informal level of the selfie. Freed from its staid origins, the modern portrait can be heroic representation, transgressive, humorous or an act of wish fulfillment. Current Profile, the new exhibition at the Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.craftalliance.org), explores contemporary portraiture in all media. The show features everything from Richard Wehrs' sculpted bust of an alien warrior to Cayce Zavaglia's embroidered image of a young woman in pigtails, and all points in between. Current Profile opens with a free reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 11. The exhibition remains up through March 17. free admission

Canfield Drive

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 3 p.m. and Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7 p.m. Continues through Jan. 27

The civic protests following the killing of Michael Brown by a police officer will enter St. Louis history as an event as momentous as the Jefferson Bank Protests of the 1960s and the Dred Scott trial of the 1850s. But in the days after Brown's death, a long view of history wasn't possible. As international media crowded into Ferguson and tried to make sense of the region's troubled history with race, equal opportunity and community policing, it felt as if the facts changed daily. It's this tangle of news personalities and deadlines that informs Kristen Adele Calhoun and Michael Thomas Walker's new play, Canfield Drive. Two reporters with very different views of the story try to piece together the truth about what happened on a hot August day on a suburban street, while also trying to keep their own pasts from becoming part of the narrative. Calhoun and Thomas have spent four years working on the script with the St. Louis Black Repertory Company, which commissioned the play alongside the National Performance Network and 651 Arts. Canfield Drive is informed by first-person interviews with people from the metro area and from around the world, and it seeks to start conversations about race, culture, history, privilege and healing. The Black Rep presents the world-premiere production of Canfield Drive at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.theblackrep.org). Performances are at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (January 9 to 27), and tickets are $15 to $45. $15-$45
