If all the mince pies and mulled wine have you hankering for a fresh and zesty chaser, head to the tiny black box stage at the Garage, where three fierce female choreographers, each awarded grants from the Fleishhacker Foundation to produce evening length works at ODC Theater in 2014, present previews of their work as part of the Anthro(pop)ology dance series. To satisfy your fetish for edgy robot burlesque, Anna Sullivan's Anna and the Annadroids will dance an excerpt of Man(u)fractured. If you're in the mood for some moonshine where the sun don't shine, Bianca Cabrera's Blind Tiger Society promises pure hedonism in a slice of The Aftermath Affair. Those desiring some Latin heat can get their fix with Aguas Dance Company in Tania Santiago's Movendo con Capoeira, about the relationship between capoeira and Afro-Brazilian spirituality. Because these dark days demand good nights.
