Michele McDonald for The Boston Globe
Art can bring healing, and after the events of this week the Boston Conservatory invites area residents to Reflections: Love, Loss, and Living. The show, featuring works from the school's dance, music, and theater divisions, touches on themes of loss, grief, resilience, hope, and community, and showcases a commissioned work by choreographer Peter DiMuro. According to conservatory president Richard Ortner, "We believe that this show in particular can help people in the Boston community begin to process the tremendous loss we've all felt for the past couple of days."
Thurs-Sat, 8 p.m. Sat, 2 p.m. Free, call for reservations. 617-912-9222. Boston Conservatory Theater, 31 Hemenway St., Boston. www.bostonconservatory.edu
