Feeling a little lackluster as you head into the weekend? Never fear! Here are a few options that will get you moving.

Love, dance and boxing – who can resist? Brian Sostek and Megan McLellan, the creative duo behind “Sossy Mechanics” is bringing back its old Fringe Festival gem “Trickboxing.” This time the 75 minute show will get its run in the Dowling Studio of the Guthrie Theater through September 2.

If you can stay up late, and love cutting-edge music, then head on over to Icehouse Saturday night at 11pm for

Late Night session with Toki Wright, Mayda, and Lizzo & The Larva Ink.

Some of the area’s best jazz and rhythm-driven choreographers have come together to give you an up-close look at how improvisation plays a role in their dance productions. “Rhythmically Speaking,” now in its fourth year, runs tonight and tomorrow at the Southern Theater.

The Renaissance Festival is back! And this year it’s caught itself a live mermaid. While I’m sure PETA would not approve, you can visit Ambrosia and take a gander at her scales during daily appearances at “Mermaid Cove.” And then there’s all the other stuff – food, dressing up, food, face-painting, food, jousting, food… The festival runs through September 30.
