Shen Wei Dance Arts

New York City–based Shen Wei Dance Arts melds a wide range of artistic media (sculpture, Chinese opera, Eastern philosophy, theater and visual art) into gorgeous contemporary dance performances, which in the past have featured dancers—wearing nearly nothing but paint—coloring a large canvas with their bodies. The Meany Hall performance, called Limited States, promises a similar focus on the unadorned beauty of the human form. 8 p.m. $42. Meany Hall, 15th Avenue NE and NE 40th Street; 206.685.2742;
