FROM THE EDGE

Ben Pryor curates and produces the 10-day American Realness festival, conveniently scheduled during APAP, the annual meeting of international arts presenters hungry to book the next edgy performance into their colleges and community halls. Offerings include last season’s greatest hits, as well as the world premiere of 13 Love Songs: dot dot dot, a collaboration between Ishmael Houston-Jones and Emily Wexler, who drill into the corrosive effects on human feeling of your average pop love song. Also on view are new works by Marten Spangberg and Jillian Peña, and the American premiere of Eleanor Bauer’s Midday and Eternity (the time piece), which springs from an interest in how the finite creates infinite space. And more: The overstuffed schedule is at americanrealness.com. A $100 festival pass gets you into six shows.
Mondays-Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: Jan. 9. Continues through Jan. 19, 2014
