    'BTS World Tour Love Yourself in Seoul'

    Tools

    Sat., Jan. 26, 2 & 5 p.m.

    South Korean pop group BTS have danced onto the worldwide stage with infectious, hip-hop-infused hits such as “Idol” and “Blood Sweat & Tears.” Not one but two of their albums, Love Yourself: Tear and Love Yourself: Answer, reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart in 2018. Members of the group’s ARMY (the name for its diehard fans) around the world can experience the boy band’s sold-out 2018 concert at Seoul Olympic Stadium via screenings presented by Pathé Live and Fathom Events. Filmed last year, BTS World Tour Love Yourself in Seoul treats viewers to high-energy singing, dancing and rapping by the band’s seven heartthrobs: RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. at Palace 9 Cinemas in South Burlington.

    'Swan Lake'

    Tools

    Sat., Jan. 26, 7 p.m.

    Magic, romance and tragedy combine in the timeless love story Swan Lake. In their first visit to the United States, 55 dancers from the National Ballet Theatre of Odessa leap and twirl across the stage, acting out the trials and tribulations of Prince Siegfried and the maiden Odette. Cursed by a sorcerer, Odette is a swan by day and a beautiful woman by night. Can the prince free her from this evil spell? Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky’s sweeping score propels the Ukrainian dance company’s full-scale production of this enchanting tale, performed in four acts. at Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center, Stowe Mountain Resort in Stowe. Stowe/Smuggs (map). $25-75.

    Boyfriend, Princess Nostalgia

    Boyfriend, Princess Nostalgia

    Tools

    Sat., Jan. 26, 8:30 p.m.

    New Orleans rapper Boyfriend’s nasty rhymes would make even the worst potty mouth blush. Stacked with wordplay and cultural references, her most-played Spotify track, “Like My Hand Did,” graphically derides a lover who couldn’t exactly, um, get her where she needed to go in the bedroom. Hot tip: You do not want to be on the receiving end of this MC’s wrath. Known for pioneering a theatrically informed performance style dubbed “rap cabaret,” she appears onstage costumed in her signature messy curlers and a silky dressing gown. Catch Boyfriend on Saturday, January 26, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Local R&B singer-songwriter Princess Nostalgia opens. at Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington. Chittenden County (map). $12/15.

    Martha Hull

    Martha Hull

    Tools

    Through Jan. 26

    “Cute + Deadly” is a perfect characterization for Hull’s work. Without committing fully to either, she invents a union of macabre and adorable. In her imagination, a kitty is dressed as the Grim Reaper, a red bunny looks like a punkish devil with a tiny pitchfork, and a hunk of cheese reclines in a bordello with a come-hither look. Other works are just plain funny. In one new image posted on Hull’s website, she shows us how Santa gets into your house if you don’t have a chimney. The Burlington artist also notes, “I love petting zoos, rainbows, spiders, cheese and contemplating the end of the world.” That explains a lot. at The Daily Planet in Burlington (map).

    Varujan Boghosian

    Varujan Boghosian

    Tools

    Through Jan. 26

    BigTown Gallery in Rochester has previously shown the work of master collagist artist Varujan Boghosian; the current exhibit, titled simply “Late Work,” is his fourth solo show at the venue. The richly colored constructions and collages are visual delights, incorporating references to mythology, literature and, if you look closely, a whiff of political protest. The 92-year-old Hanover-based artist marries wit and whimsy with stunningly precise technique. An accompanying exhibition by Erick Hufschmid features 18 photographs taken in Boghosian’s studio in 2010, along with an essay by poet Charles Simic. Pictured: “Bonaparte’s March” by Boghosian. at BigTown Gallery in Rochester. Randolph/Royalton (map).

    James Secor

    James Secor

    Tools

    Through Jan. 26

    In his newest exhibition, “As Not Seen” at the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, James Secor explores a phenomenon in the built landscape that most of us probably give scant attention: storage units. Working in acrylics, the Vermont artist presents paintings about objects that “fall away as noise,” as he puts it. Secor admires the geometry and repetition in rows of storage units, which speak to excess and possibly hoarding. He even allows evanescent shadows their own planes of brilliant color, as much a part of the scene as the pitched-roof units. Perhaps only in paintings — that is, in an artist’s eye — do these caches of consumerism convey “a formal, minimalist beauty,” as Secor would have it. Pictured: “Units M-Q (Mickey D’s).” at Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier. Barre/Montpelier (map).
