If you’re feeling the overwhelming urge to feast your eyes on modern dance and your teeth on bites of salmon (um, no promises on the salmon, the press release didn’t include a menu), head to the Mission for tapas, ODC-style.

After wine and hors d'oeuvres, a carefully edited selection of ODC's most popular works - namely, Waving Not Drowning, Stomp a Waltz, and John Somebody - are presented in an up-close studio setting. Dancers leap and slide to Brazilian piano and live electronic processing in an hour of ODC’s athletic and imaginative brand of motion.

July 30-31. ODC Dance Commons, 351 Shotwell St. Tickets are $20 at (415) 863-9834 or www.odcdance.org.
