Now that the old Actor's Gang space has been hollowed out like a kiwi, and the Open Fist has tenaciously but lightly taken up residence there, the Fist's avant-garde modern dancer friends, Hysterica Dance Company, are taking advantage of the cavernous emptiness of the space with their new work, RAPTURE.

We interviewed Kitty McNamee, Hysterica's artistic director and one of the four choreographers featured in RAPTURE, last year. Their vocabulary of movement ranges from contortonist, sensual pop and hip-hop to lyric childhood to abstract rhythm. It's perfect for the yet-to-be-converted to LA's experimental dance scene.

There are only three performances left. RAPTURE performs at the Open Fist Theatre, 6809 Santa Monica Blvd, tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday at 8 pm. Tix $17/$20. Info and reservations online or call 323-882-6912.
