Sights and Sounds is your weekly guide to the Bay Area arts scene. This week dancer Brendon Chan sat down with KALW's Jenee Darden to talk about three events happening around the Bay Area.

<< Khôra >> : a dance in digital and physical space  is running at the ODC Theater in San Francisco this weekend. The performance explores how "we inhabit both digital and physical space at the same time" and our complex relationship with technology. The production features "motion sensor technology to translate the dancers’ movement into sound.” 

The classic action film Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark is about an archaeologist racing to locate the magical Ark of the Covenant before the Nazi’s reach it and use its power to take over the world. It’s playing at the Landmark Clay Theater in San Francisco this weekend.

Free Outdoor Movie Night at Union Square is screening Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse on Friday night . The Oscar-winning movie follows Miles Morales, a teenager who becomes Spiderman. 

Catch dancer Brendon Chan performing in the musical Hamilton at the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco now through 2020.
