Table manner: Guest dancers casebolt & smith perform In Other Words.

Inspired by the film noir sensibility of The Lost Weekend, choreographer Meg Wolfe explores themes of disappearance, loss, love and death. She even promises a femme fatale, almost a requirement of this dark movie métier. The founder and main curator of Anatomy Riot, a long-running dance showcase, Wolfe can’t resist injecting a changing cast of friends and their dances to augment each program. This weekend Wolfe is joined by casebolt & smith, performing In Other Words — a dancework confined to a 2-by-4-foot table — and Sam Kim, in a solo titled AVATAR. To see video clips of Wolfe on Dance Channel TV, go to www.laweekly.com/stage and click on the dance pick. Unknown Theater, 1110 N. Seward St., L.A., www.unknowntheater.com. Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m., Sun., 6 p.m. thru July 13. $18 online, $24 at door. (323) 466-7781.
