THROUGH 4/8, "Measure for Measure"

If she accuses him, who will believe her? Theatre Unbound presents 
"Measure for Measure," the world premiere of a text freshly restored 
by director Kate Powers to come closer to what scholars believe 
Shakespeare wrote. “It’s a 400-year-old #metoo story,” Powers says. 
$18-22. 7:30pm certain weekdays; 2pm Sun. Gremlin Theatre, 550 
Vandalia Street, St. Paul. Details: 612-721-1186, theatreunbound.com


4/6-15, "Garden of Names"


Zorongo Flamenco Dance Theatre’s “Garden of Names” is 
inspired by the thousands of Argentinian activists killed during 
state terrorism of the 1970s. The period inspired a movement of 
mothers and grandmothers that continues today. Zorongo’s founder 
and artistic director Susana di Palma explains, “The Garden of 
Names is this beautiful place where the artist goes to remember 
those who have disappeared — to speak their names and tell their 
stories.” A variation of the dance premiered in 1996. Says di Palma, 
“I think we’re again in a time of examining the world around us 
and deciding what we, as citizens, must do. It felt like an important 
time to retell this story.” $30. 8pm Fri., Sat.; 2pm Sun. Cowles Center 
for Dance & The Performing Arts, 528 Hennepin Ave., Mpls.
