Now in its third year, Inverse Performance Art takes over Northwest Arkansas with a dizzying array of performances from local, national and international artists. 

When founder Cynthia Post Hunt stopped by to discuss this year's events we learned that Inverse owes a lot to a giant edible cupcake Post Hunt created for her first performance. 

The Aquila Theatre Company is bringing Sense and Sensibility to Walton Arts Center at 7 p.m. Thursday. The company specializes in bringing classic theater to everybody. We talk with Desiree Sanchez from Aquila about their work.


"Dear Elizabeth" by Sarah Ruhl is the next presentation from ArkansasStaged. The company will present the work at 7 p.m. Sunday at 21c Museum Hotel in Bentonville.

The Fayetteville run of Butcher Holler, Here We Come closes tonight at Backspace in Fayetteville. This morning, the play's actors give us a short performance from the play.

Five actors, collectively known as Aztec Economy, this weekend will present Butcher Holler, Here We Come. The cramped, intimate production brings the audience into a collapsed cave and the coal miners trying to survive there. The production, at Backspace in Fayetteville, will be lit only by the headlamps worn by the actors.
