“Unique” has become such a ubiquitous adjective it no longer carries much punch, so phrases such as “distinctive” or “one-of-a-kind” or “singular” are required to begin to capture the innovative collaboration of dance, music and what its members call “sonic sculpture” that is String Theory. Known for its signature long string harps that can stretch up to 1000 feet, String Theory has long drawn attention for the high caliber of its musicians, including founders Luke and Holly Rothschild, but Holly also has strong credentials as a dancer and choreographer, which has helped to attract some of the best of L.A.'s dancers.  Look for Lillian Barbeito, Alexia Young, Ja Yong Kim, Merett Miller and Andrew Cowan to inject movement into the music and the costume/sculptures that are part of Sonic Tutus receiving its premiere as this inventive, delightful, entertaining and, ah yes, unique ensemble, its  one-of-a-kind instruments, and its distinctive dancers and musicians take over the Broad Stage, 1310 11th St., Santa Monica; Sat., Feb. 19, 7:30 p.m.; $32-$75.
