In this age of a highly politicized global culture, it seems suitable to explore the charged and intricate social spheres with engaging, evocative art. The three distinct works that make up ANIMA—created through unique combinations of live theater, dance and video by artists familiar with the larger world stage—do just that.

Anida Yoeu Ali and Masahiro Sugano’s collaborative 1700% Project: Mistaken for Muslim is aimed at using art as a form of intervention in social inequalities, such as the extreme violence and hate directed at Muslims after 9/11. The other two works on the evening’s bill include physical theater by Camille Litalien, designed to raise awareness of the conditions women and children suffer in Afghanistan (The Afghan Project: Flying Dolls), and Ovum by Alycia Scott, which explores the human/chicken relationship through the intricate and multifaceted symbolism of the egg.

ANIMA @ Sugar Space Studio for the Arts, 616 Wilmington Ave. (2190 South), 888-300-7898, May 12-14, 8 p.m., $10.
