The Renegade Theater company is putting on a play called “Bathtub Moby Dick” in an apartment at 1816 Wharton St., a space called Wharton Heights. 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 but for Passyunk Post readers, they are discounted to $10 if you buy them at the box office at the venue and use the code POST. There’s an ambiguous, wacky trailer here.
The annual Live Arts/Philly Fringe festival begins this weekend, and it always promises to bring an eclectic mix of performances at dozens of venues across the city, some of them pretty unconventional. This weekend’s show at Wake Up Yoga at 1839 E. Passyunk Ave is no exception. At least the woman putting on the show is a yoga instructor, so it makes some sense.
The show “Crossing Imaginary Lines: a musical yoga journey by Michal Waldfogel” is Saturday at 4 p.m.
It takes a sense of adventure, of wonder, and of humor to begin Crossing Imaginary Lines. Join your travel guide, singer/songwriter and yoga teacher Michal Waldfogel, for an evening of live acoustic music that explores and dissolves limitations in the body and in the life.

If you miss it, there are shows Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Studio 34, 4522 Baltimore Ave., and Sept 22 at 7pm at Blue Banyan, 7153 Sprague St. (Mt. Airy)

Here’s a preview of what you might get at Crossing Lines:
