Never forget During the Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) attacks in 1938, Nazi thugs set upon the Gross Breesen Agricultural Farm, a Jewish training facility near Berlin, ransacked the place, and arrested all men over 18. They also demolished the community's grand piano with an ax, a telling act that composer Daniel McCarter has made the center of his Symphony for Kristallnacht: In memoriam Gross Breesen. Jed Gaylin conducts the Bay Atlantic Symphony in performing the work, with soprano Ah Young Hong as soloist, plus Brahms' Tragic Overture, at 7 p.m. at the Stockton University Performing Arts Center, 101 Vera King Farris Dr., Galloway, N.J.

In Wonderland Czech puppeteer Jan Švankmajer's wild 1988 fantasy, Alice, is a loose adaptation of Lewis Carroll's tale, mixing young actress Kristýna Kohoutová in the title role with distinctive stop-motion animation to create a brooding, dreamlike world on the edge of horror. The film screens at 7 p.m. at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute, 824 W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr. Tickets are $12; $9 seniors; $8 students. Call 610-527-9898.


Cop show Created by Soho experimentalists the Wooster Group, the 1992 film White Homeland Commando stars Ron Vawter as an undercover police officer infiltrating a white supremacist group, with Willem Dafoe as a member of the cult. The collective's first effort at filmmaking, it's a skewed take on the TV crime series, with the narrative fractured by CGI animations, deliberately out-of-sync sound, and a structuralist narrative that resembles channel surfing. The film screens at 7 p.m. at International House, 3701 Chestnut St. Tickets are $9; $7 seniors and students. Call 215-387-5125.

Where they come from The intriguing Kun-Yang Lin Dancers perform the choreographer's Home/S. 9th Street, a meditation on immigrant journeys, at FringeArts, 140 N. Columbus Blvd., at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $15 to $29. Call 215-413-1318.

With strings Though now renowned as a composer, Charles Ives was better known in his lifetime as an insurance executive who created the foundation for modern estate planning (and who was one of a trio of 20th-century insurance executive/cultural figures, along with the poet Wallace Stevens and the linguist Benjamin Lee Whorf). Violinist Stefan Jackiw performs a recital of works by the idiosyncratic composer with pianist Jeremy Denk and tenors Danny O'Neill and Tyler Hoover and baritones Greg Feldman and Randall Scarlata as guests at 8 p.m. at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater, Broad and Spruce Streets. Tickets are $24. Call 215-569-8080.

Friday & Saturday

Bad to the bone When Iranian filmmaker John Rad moved to the U.S. in 1989 to begin his dream project, the grindhouse homage Dangerous Men, it's possible he knew it would take more than two decades to complete. What he likely didn't realize is that his disjointed tale of a serial killer prostitute, a cop seeking revenge for his brother's death, and a frizzy-haired bleached-blond biker gang leader would enter into the rarefied realm of good-bad movies inhabited only by the likes of Ed Wood and Tommy Wiseau. The film screens at the PFS Roxy Theater, 2023 Sansom St., at 11:59 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $10; $9 seniors and students. Call 267-639-9508.
