The format is a little different this year, but the concept is the same. For four days (rather than the usual 24-hours), "Artery Twentyten" will feature 18 different works ranging from evolving art installations to dance to experimental theater. Added bonus: Expect audience participation.

From Thursday through Sunday, 22 artists will perform a variety of works each night. Pieces include


, Jaime Carrera's latest effort exploring the dichotomy of light meaning "safe" and darkness signifying "danger"; Kats D Fukasawa's site-specific performance piece inspired by the Japanese Obon Festival, a Buddhist celebration honoring the dead; and

The Keys Experiment

, a play about the 1940's Minnesota Starvation Experiment.

Performances are each night from 6 p.m. to midnight at the Soap Factory (518 Second St. SE; Minneapolis). Admission is free. For a complete schedule, visit
