Anyone who thinks listening to that snake made Eve the first female troublemaker hasn’t heard about Lilith. Described in Jewish folklore as a demon goddess with an insatiable appetite for blood, Lilith, according to some interpretations of the Bible, was created at the same time as Adam, but left him to seduce an archangel before Eve was created. This bad, bad girl takes center stage as artistic director Kate Hutter and her L.A. Contemporary Dance Company join forces with Theatre Dybbuk for Cave…A Dance for Lilith. Written by Aaron Henne and choreographed by Hutter, Cave explores threads connecting ancient creation stories about the blood-thirsty goddess to contemporary issues of personal and political conflict. Hutter and Henne’s two previous collaborations produced compelling dance theater, and the two co-direct this endeavor in addition to their writing and dancemaking duties. An original score by Eric Mason will be performed live at the Diavolo Performance Space in the Brewery Arts Complex, 616 Moulton Ave., dwntwn.; Fri.-Sat., Nov. 9-10, 16-17, 8:30 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 11 & 18, 7:30 p.m.; $25, $20 in advance; –Ann Haskins
