Kairu

Newcomer Sol y Luna Dance Company has a bare-bones budget, but what it lacks in age and money it makes up for with a boundless energy, as it unites hip-hop, breakdancing, acrobatics, ballet, modern dance and martial arts. Today, they’ll present Reyie Delgado’s Kairu, which uses these combined forms of movement and spoken word to tell a tale of love, violence and the quest for enlightenment. Inspired by Asian legends, Delgado created the warrior Kairu, whose ravaging quest for dominance creates a match-up of evil against evil. Using swords, swift feet and somersaults, the group aspires to show the passion behind power — and a new direction in dance. 7:30 p.m. Barnevelder Movement/Arts Complex, 2201 Preston. For information, call 713-529-1819 or visit www.barnevelder.org. $15.
