The Slaughter Project explores the space between alienation and togetherness in its spring dance concert, Caravan. The title piece is inspired by the culture of the nomad, which depends on close family bonds to provide a shared culture and societal center even as the group exists outside the mainstream world. The other eight dances are built around the idea of the shared experiences that define a group. Caravan is performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (March 25 and 26) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543 or www.edison.wustl.edu). Admission is $15.
