Bodies in Motion Festival 2020 in Northampton // THURSDAY-SUNDAY

For the second January in a row, the Bodies in Motion Festival brings a wide range of dance performances, workshops, residencies, and other artistic events to Northampton’s Community Arts Center at 33 Hawley Street. The festival, which continues until Jan. 26, is in part a celebration of Northampton’s recent history as an incubator for innovative dance. Thornes Market hosted January dance performances for 15 years before the building changed ownership in 2006. This Thursday and Friday at 33 Hawley will feature a 7 p.m. performance by the dance quintet The Architects, and on Sunday, beginning at 5 p.m., Joya Powell of New York City, the Hatchery Dance Company from Northampton (made up of Valley teens), and First Generation of Holyoke will all perform.

Kalliope Jones and Sodada at Hawks and Reed Performing Arts Center // FRIDAY

They’ve got a big sound. They are refreshingly original and energetic. Alouette Batteau, Amelia Chalfant, and Isabella DeHerdt, the trio that makes up Kalliope Jones, have caught lightning in a bottle, and people have noticed. They opened for And the Kids at the Iron Horse, performed at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and sang backup vocals for Dar Williams and The Nields, they’ve played the Green River Festival, and their 2015 video for “Nightlight” was released by MTV, People Magazine, and Seventeen. In 2019, they released a 6-track EP titled Bubblegum Heart and a single, “Beach Day.” Joining Kalliope Jones are Sodada, made up by Andy Casella and Hannah Rose, who tastefully mix indie rock, jazz elements and punk rock. Show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. 289 Main Street, Greenfield. — Luis Fieldman
