DANCE Cho­sen by Is­mene Brown

Pi­casso on Pa­per This big show fo­cuses on Pi­casso’s ac­tiv­i­ties as a print-maker, with em­pha­sis on the in­no­va­tive tech­niques he used to cre­ate each etch­ing, aquatint, or litho­graph. Dean Gallery, Na­tional Gal­leries of Scot­land, Ed­in­burgh (0131 624 6200), un­til Sept 23. Craft­ing Beauty in Mod­ern Ja­pan Exquisitely re­fined work in ce­ramic, tex­tile, lac­quer, met­al­work, glass and wood. Bri­tish Mu­seum, Lon­don WC1 (020 7323 8181), un­til Oct 21. Im­pres­sion­ists by the Sea Snappy ti­tle for a thought­ful show that’s re­ally about French artists paint­ing the coast of north­ern France in the late 19th cen­tury. Royal Academy, Lon­don W1 (020 7300 8000), un­til Sept 30. Re­nais­sance Sil­ver from the Schroder Col­lec­tion Spec­tac­u­lar dis­play of princely mag­nif­i­cence by late me­dieval and Re­nais­sance gold­smiths. Wal­lace Col­lec­tion, Lon­don W1 (020 7563 9500), un­til Oct 14. Andy Warhol: A Cel­e­bra­tion of Life and Death Tr­isha Brown Dance Com­pany One of the world’s most ac­claimed chore­og­ra­phers un­veils a mixed bill of works. Ed­in­burgh Play­house (0131 467 5200), un­til to­mor­row. The Bat­tle of Stal­in­grad Ge­or­gia’s Tbil­isi Mar­i­onette State Theatre takes on an al­most ab­surdly large theme with small, sim­ple means. The sound­track (acted in Rus­sian, trans­lated in English) is flaw­less, while the grave pup­peteers han­dle their ob­jects with gos­samer del­i­cacy. As­sem­bly Aurora Nova, Ed­in­burgh (0131 623 3030), un­til Mon. As­tron­omy for In­sects Who knows what this show from Rus­sia’s black­SKYwhite means, but it’s a blast. Money and imag­i­na­tion have been well spent on a sci-fi world of odd hu­manoid char­ac­ters liv­ing amid throb­bing light tubes and ear­split­ting noise. As­sem­bly Aurora Nova, Ed­in­burgh (0131 623 3030), un­til Mon.
