Writer and poet Kimberly Dark aims her new solo show Good Fortune to be "as spontaneous and individualized as a tarot card reading." For the show, Dark has created her own "tarot deck" of 45 large-size art images, each corresponding to a story or poem of hers, built on broad themes of love, sex, politics and power. At the performance, one audience member chooses cards from the deck, forming the show's "readings" for that evening. Saturday, Oct. 8, at 8 p.m. The Center, 1318 U St. NW. Tickets are $10.
