Aquila Theatre’s “Trojan War” is highlight of Wednesday events


1. “Our Trojan War: Our Warrior Chorus” from Aquila Theatre

7 p.m. March 22 and 23. $10-$40. McCullough Theatre, 2375 Robert Dedman Drive. texasperformingarts.org.

Known for creating bold reinterpretations of classical plays for contemporary audiences, British-American Aquila Theatre has teamed up with the Warrior Chorus’ combat veterans and actors for this production that sets the classic myths of ancient Greece and Rome against the compelling narratives of modern war. “The Trojan War” uses epic moments from Homer’s “Iliad” and scenes from other Greek drama and poetry, from the fall of Troy and the rise of Rome, to propel a thrilling chronicle of men and women at war.

2. The Contemporary Austin’s Rooftop Architecture & Design Film Series

7 p.m. doors March 22-23. $10; free for members. The Moody Rooftop at the Jones Center, 700 Congress Ave. thecontemporaryaustin.org.

The new and improved Moody Rooftop is screening “Collaborations,” a portrait of British-Ghanaian architect David Adjaye through the eyes of others. The film features interviews with Adjaye’s collaborators, a roster of influential figures in the art and cultural world, and looks at a significant number of his architectural projects across the globe. The event will have food and drink from Royal Blue Grocery, but you can also bring your own picnic. The galleries below will be closed.

3. Come and Taste It with the Texas Observer

6 to 9 p.m. March 22. Free. Ironwood Hall, 505 E. Seventh St. texasobserver.org/2017-rabble-rouser.

Come and Taste It, the Texas Observer’s 2017 Rabble Rouser, is bigger and better than ever, with music from local swamp-funk band Shinyribs and beer from a variety of Texas breweries: Hops & Grain Brewing, Saint Arnold Brewing Company, the ABGB, Whitestone Brewery and the Texas Beer Company in Taylor. The night will also be your chance to support independent investigative reporting from the Texas Observer. Branded flight glasses will be available for $25.

4. Pug Rescue of Austin Charity Brew at Pinthouse Pizza

11 a.m. March 22. Free. 4729 Burnet Road. pinthousepizza.com/burnet/events.

All proceeds from the brewpub’s Calma Muerta Session Ale will go toward Pug Rescue of Austin, which will be on-site with adorable, adoptable pug pups from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Plus, Pinthouse will donate 25 percent of all sales made throughout the entire day to the dog-friendly organization, which specifically helps unwanted or abused pugs. The beer, at a low 4.8 percent ABV, has big hop aromas and flavors of lemon, berries and tropical citrus, with a light malt backbone to balance it all out.
