What do a baby’s blanket, a hunting rifle, the Berlin Wall and the Golden Gate Bridge have in common? On the surface, nothing, but in Marsian De Lellis’ Object of Her Affection, a lot. Part of the sixth edition of the Los Angeles Exchange Festival, the puppet-powered performance tells the unconventional love story between a woman and the objects that have popped up during her life. Mounted at Chinatown’s Automata theater and told with a bit of humor, De Lellis tackles sexual identity and the relationship between objects and humans. The show began Sept. 27 and concludes this week with four 8 p.m. performances on Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 10-13. At 504 Chung King Road or performancepractice.la.

Also included in the ‘Dont Miss’ List were Angel City Jazz Festival, Shellac, Women of Wrestling, and the Los Angeles Burning Man Decompression Art and Music Festival.
