From the Circle: Remembering the Earth Through Folk Tales

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 13 2011

Ecology is the inspiration behind Filament Theatre Ensemble's series of life-cycle-centered folk tales, presented in ritualistic, movement-based vignettes. The company makes great efforts to live up to its message (every aspect of the production conforms to a zero-waste "cradle-to-cradle" model) and even greater efforts to make sure you don't leave without knowing it. Their admirable mission generates mostly inspiring theater; if it weren't for the sincerity and optimism of the four performers, the hour-long show would be downright hokey. Another half hour and the piece might slip into peyote-trip territory. --Dan Jakes

Price: $5-$25
