Sheep on the Lam

by

Iceland is a baffling land seemingly made from equal parts ice and fire. The North Atlantic island has glaciers and geysers, hilly meadows thick with tough grass and volcanic slopes made of igneous rock. It's a beguiling sight for human eyes, but how does it look to the native sheep? Italian theater company Compagnia TPO provides an answer of sorts with its production Kindur: The Adventurous Life of Icelandic Sheep. The show is told from the point of view of a group of kindur (Icelandic for "sheep") who roam free during the spring and summer. Those green meadows and rumbling volcanoes are recreated via digital projections and good old human interaction -- young audience members are invited to come onstage and feel parts of the land themselves. Kindur is performed at 2 and 5 p.m. Saturday, and 1 and 4 p.m. Sunday (October 4 and 5) at the Center of Creative Arts (524 Trinity Avenue, University City; 314-725-6555 or www.cocastl.org). Tickets are $14 to $18, and the show is recommended for ages four and older.
Sat., Oct. 4, 2 & 5 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 5, 1 & 4 p.m., 2014
