In case you can't get to Sweden in December to see them live, catch the Michele Brangwen Dance Ensemble without leaving home. 3 Short Films by the Michele Brangwen Dance Ensemble documents the contemporary troupe's informal weave of dance, music and film into hypnotic images that seem freshly improvised. Confusion of Angels, one of MBDE's best works, filmed at the Rothko Chapel by Yunuen Perez Vertti with raga-like music by renowned jazz bassist Thomas Helton, possesses a particular peacefulness. Meet the artists after the screening. 8 p.m. The Artery Houston, 5401 Jackson. For information, call 713-533-9515 or visit www.brangwendance.org. Free.
