    A'lante Flamenco: Procession

    A’lante Flamenco gives you a chance to connect with your fellow humans, singing, chanting, and marching along with the dancers and musicians as they take you on a sensory experience that goes beyond flamenco, evoking Semana Santa in Sevilla, the Arabic culture of Granada, and the universal appeal of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. (Or, yes, you can also just sit back and take in the spectacle.) Bonus: Guest artists Julie Slim Nassif and Oliver Steck.
    Through Feb. 23. Fri.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 4pm. $22.

    Theatre

    Alabaster

    This new play by Audrey Cephaly is a darkly comic drama about love, art, and the power of healing. Listen: "After a tornado barrels through North Alabama leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her wisecracking pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale." Directed by Rudy Ramirez for Shrewd Productions, starring Lizzie Beckham, Shannon Grounds, Jennifer Jennings, and (the legendary) Jennie Underwood. And see our review of the show right here.
    Through March 7. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. $15-30.

    Theatre

    Arden of Faversham

    Hidden Room Theatre presents the lamentable and true tale of Master Arden, his wicked wife, her insatiable lover, and the bumbling ruffians the illicit pair hire to kill him. No one's sure if Shakespeare (or Kyd? or Marlowe?) had a hand in writing the script back in the day, but we know that the show is here directed by Beth Burns and embodied by a fine and vigorous cast.
    Through March 1. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $18-37.

    Fancy Fancy Studios: Audiobiography

    Swing by this Eastside venue for a post-apocalyptic cup of coffee (!?) and a self-guided tour through "a surreal house of memory, grief, and floating bubbles" as author and multimedia artist Jamaica Cole presents her first book, The Endlessly Forking Snake Tongue, in audio and installation form. Local, lovely, and recommended.
    Feb. 21-23. Fri., 7-10pm; Sat., noon-10pm; Sun., noon-7pm
