Choreographer and visual artist Ginger Krebs presented a work-in-progress excerpt of All We Can See From Here outdoors this past June. Tonight at 8 PM, Krebs unveils the full-length version of this “ritual of interdependence” involving four dancers (Krebs, Kennedy Alexandria, Lauren Kunath, and Andy Slavin) as part of Steppenwolf’s LookOut series (1650 N. Halsted). The quartet creates a succession of symmetrical interlocking shapes with their bodies. The catch is that “a geometric diagram on the floor designates the performance’s zone of operations, where resources are equally distributed and everyone has committed to stay and ‘work it out,’” requiring real-time recalibration. The performance also includes drone videography by Justin Lynk, sound by Joseph Kramer, and costumes by Sky Cubabub of Rebirth Garments. The performance continues Fri-Sat 8 PM; tickets are $20 at steppenwolf.org. (KR)

Tonight’s for the punks! At 8:30 PM, two touring bands will share the stage at One City Tap (3115 S. Archer): bratty skate punks Twompsax and DIY-supergroup-posing-as-basement punks Dollhouse. Opening for them are an ESG cover band and local queer punks Private Life, who debuted at Don’t Panic Records’s anniversary party at Subterranean in September. This show will definitely get your feet stomping. You must be 21 or older, and it’s $10-$15 at the door. (MC)
