Critic’s picks: Dance

ARMITAGE GONE! DANCE Called the “punk ballerina” for her edgy, seamlessly inventive blending of styles, Tony Award-winning choreographer Karole Armitage and her company (left) bring two Boston premieres to this engagement: the starkly lyrical “Ligeti Essays” and the neon-colored “Rave,” which also features 19 dancers from the Boston Conservatory. Presented by World Music/CRASHarts and the Institute of Contemporary Art. Oct. 18-20, $50. ICA. 617-876-4275, www.worldmusic.org

FALL IS RISING: FACULTY & FRIENDS Representing styles ranging from ballet and modern to flamenco and jazz, the teaching artists of Dance Complex come together for this promising showcase. One expected highlight is the chance to see local flamenco master Ramón de los Reyes on the same program as his son, Madrid-based Nino de los Reyes, who walks on flamenco’s more contemporary side. Oct. 18-19, $20. Dance Complex, Cambridge.
