Be the first to see this world premiere!

Through the use of ritual, music, movement, and storytelling, From the Circle: Remembering the Earth through Folktales is a beautiful reminder of how the natural world has shaped the dreams and ideas of humanity for centuries. At once timeless and extremely topical, these folk tales speak to our ever-changing relationship with the natural world, and the ongoing cycle of creation, destruction, and recreation that is so deeply present in our lives.

From the Circle is also an important stepping stone in our ongoing sustainability efforts.  All elements of the design of From the Circle are recycled, reclaimed, or non-toxic, as we take into consideration the complete life cycle of all our design materials.  We at Filament are working towards the goal of a zero-waste theatre model, and From the Circle is a key step on that journey!

We look forward to seeing you!
