  • From the Pig Pile: The Requisite Gesture(s) of Narrow Approach

    This "interactive journey across a vast landscape of associate histories" features "original music, puppetry, dancing, marauding, a Yeahoh sighting, and enough champagne for everyone," with the whole thing scripted, as it were, by Sibyl Kempson and directed by Jenny Larson and Shawn Sides in a collaboration between Salvage Vanguard Theatre and those unstoppable Rude Mechs. Creations and contortions morphed over the course of three years by a cast and crew of fearless local notables, now unpacking in piles onstage. Through April 13. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. Note: This joint's also part, for three nights, of Fusebox Festival. $20
