Seattle International Dance Festival

Next time I go on vacation, I want Cyrus Khambatta to pack my bags—every year he's produced the Seattle International Dance Festival (aka Beyond the Threshold), he's managed to find room for just one more new thing. Tonight begins the indoor performances, which feature movement artists from as far away as India and as close as Capitol Hill (including a tribute for Seattle choreographer Mary Sheldon Scott). Saturday, from noon-6 p.m., is the "Art on the Fly" series of outdoor mini-events along the South Lake Union Trolley route. Khambatta is also inaugurating the "Sanity Cafe" (Sat. June 9), a late-night cabaret performance of a trio of works to be created during the festival. The theme? That'll be selected by you, the audience, this evening. SANDRA KURTZ
