If you want to see what’s happening in performing arts in China, it won’t cost you more than a subway ride to get there when the Visions + Voices Global Performance Series begins. This second annual event is playing host to China’s top artists in disciplines including theater, dance, film, and art. It kicks off tonight with cutting-edge works from TAO Dance Theater. Other highlights include Hangzhou Yue Opera Company’s Hedda and The Lady from the Sea, their reimagining of two Ibsen plays, and the National Theatre of China’s production of Richard III. Series ends May 12.
