Presented by Asheville Contemporary Dance Theatre, “Salad Barre: A Dance Feast” calls upon a host of talented movers to satiate attendees’ souls rather than their bellies. Organizers say this “evening of inventive choreography” spans dance genres like Butoh, tap and flamenco and explores an even more diverse lineup of expressive concepts — female symbols and stereotypes, power dynamics, death, spatial interaction, discarding relationships and items, and secrecy, to name a few. ACDT dancers and several guest artists have planned nearly a dozen numbers for the evening-long performance. The all-you-can-watch “Salad Barre” opens at the Bebe Theatre on Friday and Saturday, March 27-28, at 8 p.m. $15/$17 per night. acdt.org. Photo of Butoh performer Jenni Cockrell courtesy of ACDT
