MPR News Arts Reporter Marianne Combs joins Jade and Sean McPherson to talk about three happenings in the local art world.

Here's this week's rundown:

Saint Paul Ballet — At The Cowles Center, four women choreographers hailing from the Twin Cities, Washington, D.C. and Utah bring unexpected fresh work from a storehouse of experience alongside emerging sensibilities employing the artistic range of St. Paul Ballet's company dancers and their combined power and litheness.

"Sinew: Female Native Artists of the Twin Cities" — Part of the Guerrilla Girls Twin Cities Takeover, this exhibition focuses on "increasing the visibility and recognition of the strength, vigor, power, and resilience of Native American women and their important contribution to the arts, our communities, our families, and our world." -Dyani White Hawk Polk

"The Arsonists" — Hosted by Frank Theatre and appearing at The Ritz, "The Arsonists" is a wildly funny "moral play without a moral" about our willingness to bury our heads in the sand rather than take on political and social responsibility.

Marianne Combs joins The Current's Morning Show for the Weekend Arts Roundup every Thursday at 8:30 a.m. Read all the latest arts news from MPR News.
