SEE
Sol Hashemi: Rock Show

A lighthearted look at manufactured items literally pinned against the natural world. For example, a camera flash is taped to one rock, while a bottle of Bud Light Lime is suspended between two boulders.

Where: James Harris Gallery, 312 Second Ave. S. (206-903-6220). Admission is free.

Salt Horse: Titan Arum

The up-and-coming dance troupe brings myth-inspired movement and dramatic costuming to the stage with a new performance.

Where: Washington Hall, 153 14th Ave. (206-622-6952). Tickets ($15-$18) online at brownpapertickets.com.
