ART: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts concludes its 2008-2009 season with Nick Cave Soundsuits Collaboration, which combines the movement of New York-based choreographer Ronald K. Brown and the shimmering Soundsuits of Chicago-based sculptor Nick Cave. Tonight, Saturday, and Sunday nights, in collaboration with Brown and Evidence dancer Shani Collins, local performers will bring to life Cave’s Soundsuits—ephemeral full-body sculptures composed of recycled clothing, beads, bottle caps, toys, twigs and hair. The exhibition runs through July 5.
