It’s Got “Porno” In The Title. You’re Going.

RO2’s Downtown space could barely house the last public offering of “Pizzicato Porno,” a new piece of dance and performance by Justin Locklear and Danielle Georgiou. It wasn’t the gallery’s fault; only so many giant weather balloons, video art projections, pieces of DJ gear, sweaty convulsing bodies and eager audience members can press into one space. That’s a metaphor befitting of “Porno,” a work that unpacks a storage room’s worth of emotions to relay the tale of a love’s unravel. It’s been performed minimally but to great acclaim in California and select Dallas offerings. On Sunday you can see real-life couple Georgiou and Locklear go through the energetic, joyful and sorrowful motions of a relationship’s end at Margo Jones Theatre of the Magnolia Lounge in Fair Park (1121 First Ave.). It’s pay-what-you-can, so do that and in turn support performance art in Dallas. The detaching begins at 7 p.m. and there is some light nudity, if that helps.
