This weekend, Shapiro & Smith returns to the Southern Theater to present three world premieres and a reprise of a favorite from last year for their show, "Burning Air." Choreographer Joanie Smith, one of City Pages' 2010 Artists of the Year, is sure to present some engaging work along with company member Eddie Oroyon, who has also choreographed one of the pieces.

Another world premiere in the show is a comedic, rhythmic piece called "Pat a Cake," featuring Laura Selle Virtucio and Megan McClellan. The third world premiere is choreographed by Eddie Oroyon, one of the most agile male dancers in town, who has been gaining a name for himself in the past few years as a risk-taking choreographer in his own right.
