Strange Fruit: "Swoon!" and "Spheres"

Australian stage company Strange Fruit has no problem performing high - its fusion of dance, theater and circus is done atop ultra-flexible poles that are more than 13 feet tall. Audience members gaze upward at the costumed artists' hypnotic, bizarrely graceful routines. Strange Fruit's "Swoon!" and "Spheres," its first-ever Texas performance, is sure to be trippy, beautiful and unlike anything you've seen before. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney. For information, visit www.discoverygreen.com. For a sample of what Strange Fruit does, visit www.strangefruit.net.au. Free.
