NO BOUNDARIES, a series of global performances presented by World Performance Project at Yale and Yale Repertory Theatre, concludes its 2009-10 season with MESs, by Yoko Higashino and Toshio Kajiwara, members of the Japanese multimedia performance group Baby-Q, at the Iseman Theatre, 1156 Chapel St., for three performances only on Thursday, March 25; Friday, March 26; and Saturday, March 27, at 8 pm.

Piercing lasers, flashing LEDs, and a pulsing techno beat illuminate choreographer and performer Higashino’s exploration of gender and transformation in a world of constant loss and confusion. Talk backs with Higashino and Kajiwara follow each performance. Additional related programs, all free and open to the public, also have been scheduled.

Tickets for MESs are $35 and are available online at yalerep.org, by phone (203) 432-1234 and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office, 1120 Chapel St., at York Street. $25 senior tickets are available for all performances. Yale faculty and staff tickets are $25. Discounts are also available for groups of ten or more.
