    First read on NPR’s “Morning Edition” in 1992, David Sedaris’ essay “The SantaLand Diaries” has become an adult holiday favorite. In it, Sedaris employs his trademark dark humor to recount his experiences working as an elf in Macy’s SantaLand. Comedian, actor and former Vermont legislator Jason Lorber tours the state with a one-person stage adaptation of the story. “Nope, it’s definitely not a traditional Christmas tale,” Lorber says in a press release. “But if you want to laugh your stockings off the fireplace and enjoy classic, satirical wit, then come.” at Off Center for the Dramatic Arts in Burlington (map). $20-23.

    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    Tools

    Through Feb. 8, 2020

    Shilling, a Canadian Ojibwe painter, filmmaker and playwright — the second artist son of Aboriginal painter Arthur Shilling — was born in Rama, Ontario, and maintains a studio in Toronto. His works in the Burlington gallery may be a revelation to local art viewers. Shilling’s visions frequently depict animals — painted Ojibwe style — at odds with humans who seem blithely bent on destruction. For example, an outsize bird perches on a backhoe that’s digging a channel for a pipeline; a fish hovers alongside an oil rig in the sea. Shilling’s juxtaposition of graphical, vibrant native symbology and darkly impressionistic scenes is jarring — in a good way. Trained in native and contemporary arts, he wields both to address some of the sad consequences of imbalance in the modern world. at BCA Center in Burlington (map).
