The Short List

An A&E pocket guide for January



CONCEPTUAL NOTIONS

1/7-4/1 “I instinctively respond to the form, surface and texture of Earth, echoing them in my work,” says artist Barbara Sorensen (above). The result is a collection of simple, yet monumental works, many of which will be on display during Sorensen’s Topographies show at Orlando Museum of Art. You can meet the artist at a reception on 1/14.
 


NOT CLOWNING AROUND

1/12-1/16 With Dragons, coming to the Amway Center, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey presents a hyped-up circus featuring Kung Fu warriors (above), charging Cossack riders, magnificent Asian elephants and fierce tigers. Not to mention the spectacle of seven motorcycles orbiting a “Globe of Steel’’ at 65 mph.
 


HIS FIELD OF DREAMS

1/21-3/18 Roberto Clemente, who perished in a plane crash nearly 40 years ago on his way to help Nicaraguan earthquake victims, was an outstanding humanitarian as well as a stellar baseball player. An exhibit at the Orange County Regional History Center pays tribute to his major league accomplishments both on and off the field.
 


SACRED STORIES THROUGH DANCE

2/2-2/5 Drawing from documented early 20th century interviews with more than 2,000 former slaves, Moore Dance Project brings a series of harrowing yet inspiring memories to the stage with performances of Sacred Slave Stories at Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center in Sanford.
 


BIG BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

1/12 Christian music’s largest annual tour, Winter Jam, comes to the UCF Arena, with Grammy-nominated alternative rockers Skillet as headliners: Also featured: Group 1 Crew (above) Sanctus Real, former Newsboys front man Peter Furler, Kari Jobe, and Building 429. You’ll praise the price of admission too: 10 bucks.
 


WHEELS, DIRT, POWER

1/28 Featuring trucks with names like Grave Digger, El Toro Loco and Stone Crusher, the Monster Jam Competition at the Florida Citrus Bowl promises to be a low-key affair. Yeah, right.
