The Short List

An A&E pocket guide for May




LICENSED TO CHILL

5/12 If lounging on daybeds under the soft glow of outdoor lamps is your cup of tea (or glass of wine), then head to Lake Eola Park for the third annual Chillounge Night. There will be music, fireworks and food aplenty. And how can you pass up a good old-fashioned daybed parade? http://chilloungenight.com/orlando.html
 


 

A “Fictions’’ work from photographer Filip Dujardin
 

CELEBRATE, DISCOVER AND CULTIVATE

5/3-5/13 Expect the unexpected at Snap! Orlando—a photographic free-for-all featuring (to name a few) Filip Dujardin, Travis Dove, Miru Kim and Moby, amid a ton of exhibits, lectures and parties. Celebrate the masters and discover emerging artists at this yearly downtown Orlando festival. http://snaporlando.com/
 


 

“Dog-Powered Robot’’ returns to the 2012 Fringe.
 

THEATER ON THE EDGE

5/16-5/28 The Orlando Fringe Festival offers dozens of uncensored staged shows, ranging from lying storytellers to robots controlled
by dogs to dominatrix instruction for dummies. (There’s a family friendly Kids Fringe, too.) http://orlandofringe.org/
 


 

SO YOU THINK THEY CAN DANCE?

5/29-6/3 Competitors from all over the world, ages 10-22, converge on the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre to compete and perform daily at the World Ballet Competition. The event culminates with the All Stars of Dance on Sunday. http://www.worldballetcompetition.com/
 


 

THE FORCE AT DISNEY, IT IS

5/18-6/10 Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are filled with so much Star Wars stuff (celebs, the Star Tours attraction and more), that fans will be light-sabering in their sleep long after Jedi training ends. http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/parks/hollywood-studios/special-events/star-wars-weekend/
 

SNAP: FILIP DUJARDIN; CHILLOUNGE: NORMA LOPEZ MOLINA; STAR WARS: WALT DISNEY WORLD; FRINGE: ORLANDO FRINGE FESTIVAL; BALLET: VAM PRODUCTIONS
