>• Performances at EMPAC are always on the odd side. Artist Kris Verdonck and choreographer Alix Eynaudi are no exception with “Exit,” a work that aims to lull its audience to sleep. Pillows will be provided. Jan. 25.

• Hip-hop revs “Wake-Up,” a daring new work about death and redemption by Rennie Harris. Performed by the sleek PHILADANCO at The Egg, the new work will be offered with other contemporary dances. March 1.

Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal at MASS MoCA will demonstrate its thrilling fusion of styles to music as diverse as Philip Glass and The Andrews Sisters. March 2 and 3.

• Turning Japanese will be a pleasure with Kodo, an ensemble that combines heady dancing with sacred taiko drumming at Proctors. March 29.

• For a delightful evening of surprising illusion, buy a ticket to Pilobolus, which will twist and fly into eye-catching tableaux at The Egg. April 21.
