If you’re going to drop in on anyone, make it Walter Dundervill. He brings a brilliant and bizarre sensibility to everything he touches, as a set designer, costumer, performer, choreographer, and director. “Arena,” his latest performance work, was shown at JACK, the new performance venue in Clinton Hill. “Arena,” is a visual and movement exploration offered in three-hour increments with a changing roster of top-notch contemporary dancers (sometimes including himself.) Audience members were invited to come and go at will. Many, including me, arrived later than the performance start time; no one left early.
