Welcome to the first edition of ”Arts this Week”
We will take a look at what is going on in the Reno, Sparks, and Carson City area during the week to come. This is by no means meant to be comprehensive or imply that the events we talk about being the best we have to offer.
The events we are talking about are taken from our community calendar: http://renoarts.news/calendar

So let’s get started.
This is the First Thursday, and with that, we have the celebrations at the Nevada Museum of Art, this week there will be the music of Kingfinger. If you haven’t seen the current exhibits in the gallery you are in for a treat, if you have, I think that they are worth a second look.

This is the last weekend to see two amazing plays.
Bruka Theater offers the last few performances of “Nation of Two”.
Chase McKenna directs this Tom Burmester play with the passion and heart of a warrior.
“Nation of Two” takes a hard look at those left behind when the ultimate sacrifice of war comes knocking at the door. I found myself thinking of how war skews our perceptions as I was transfixed by this family drama.

Also wrapping up this weekend is “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” at Good Luck Macbeth.
We have come to expect complex and deep productions from Good Luck Macbeth, and “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” does not disappoint.
“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” follows Christopher Boone as he discovers his place in this world and searches for the truth of who he is to the people around him. Christopher is challenged with a learning disability, although his condition isn’t named, it has many of the hallmarks of Asperger’s syndrome. He cannot tolerate being touched and animals are very special to him at the same time humans confuse him.
