Through flamenco dance and music, A’lante’s newest show, “Desplazados,” uses the issues of Austin’s increasing lack of affordability, the city’s gentrification and the growing struggle artists face sustaining a career here as a creative springboard. For “Desplazados,” co-creators Olivia and Isai Chacon looked no further than the life stories of their own troupe, distilling the 90-minute show from the life histories of six members.

Details:  8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays through April 26. $23. The Off Center, 2211 Hidalgo St. alanteflamenco.com.
