Goings On About Town: This Week • When masked audiences spread out at the Guggenheim Museum—as they periodically have since late March, when the “Works & Process” series re-started indoor performances—they do so in a spiral formation, up and around the walkway of Frank Lloyd Wright’s rotunda. The show happens at ground level, and the energy rises. On April 11, that energy comes from the Passion Fruit Dance Company (pictured above) as the all-female troupe employs hip-hop and house dance to tell stories of personal liberation.
