Great art feeds the mind as well as the spirit. The cerebral meets the corporeal with Everett’s new work, Brain Storm — presented at the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theater this weekend. It marks this year’s first installment of Contemporary Dance Theater’s Guest Artist Series, kicking off CDT’s 40th anniversary season. Providence, R.I.-based Everett spent years in research and development with neuroscientists and people living with brain injuries to create this evening-length work. “I’ve always been interested in their process, in the research that goes into the work they create,” says CDT Artistic Director Jefferson James. “And the fact that it’s not a traditional dance company.” Formerly known as Everett Dance Theatre, the ensemble is celebrated for its innovative blending of cross-disciplinary elements — dance, theatre, video, music — all while tackling fascinating subject matter. Here, it’s neuroscience meets the human experience… all with high-quality dancing at its heart. $27-$32. 8:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3. Aronoff Center, 650 Walnut St., Downtown. 513-621-2782, cdt-dance.org.
