Island teens bring to life this delightful play that blends the tales of Goldilocks, the Three Bears, Red Riding Hood, the Three Pigs, and Hansel and Gretel into a charming production that stays true to the original stories.

Goldilocks, forest-savvy from having to survive in the woods without a family, is on the run from the Three Bears but takes time to help Red Riding Hood, who is leery of her stepmother’s motivation in sending her out into the woods at dusk with a basket full of food and a bright red cloak. Along the way, they are saved by the Woodsman (who also happens to be Hansel and Gretel’s father) and from the zany Wolf (the same canine who plagues the Three Pigs). Then it’s encounters with the citizens of Mother Goose’s village, including Jack Horner, the Butcher, the Baker and the Candlestick Maker—all adding up to fresh humor and fun for every generation in the audience!

Pulitzer Prize-winner Katherine Boo spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents. From her uncompromising book, winner of the National Book Award for Non-Fiction 2012, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale.

India is surging with global ambition. But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, full of people with plans of their own. Zehrunisa and her son Abdul aim to recycle enough rubbish to fund a proper house. Sunil, twelve and stunted, wants to eat until he’s as tall as Kalu the thief. Asha seeks to steal government anti-poverty funds to turn herself into a ‘first-class person’, while her daughter, Manju intends to become the slum’s first female graduate.

But their schemes are fragile; global recession threatens the garbage trade, and another slum-dweller is about to make an accusation that will destroy herself and shatter the neighborhood.

Lavendera presents "I Ching" A Pattern Language in Yoga and Qigong with Dr. Candace Gossen, Ph.D. Join Dr. Gossen as she will discuss the I Ching, an ancient oracle based on 64 archetypes of nature, which is but a reflection of the nature withIN and withOUT of us. The flow of yin and yang as set within the trigrams can be orchestrated in healing movement, such as in Qigong and Yoga. Based upon the 12 meridians, but focusing on the Heart Meridian for this lecture, Dr. Gossen will give examples of the 5 Element understanding of the style of Qigong (MogaDao) and Yoga (Forrest) that she teaches.

“High-caliber acrobatics, aerial artistry and moments of absurd clownery” fill the stage in a mesmerizing production from the Pacific Northwest’s Acrobatic Conundrum circus arts company.

In their first appearance in Friday Harbor, the company shares "The Language of Chance," drawing inspiration from a story by Jorge Luis Orges, The Library of Babel. The six acrobats find themselves at odds between the sensations of falling forever and the task of looking for a story in a nonsensical world. The piece features two chapters, each with a respective director (Seattle’s KT Niehoff and Elizabeth Klob) and the contrast of the two together evokes a tale of imaginary translation, absurd truth and calculated risk.
