Yoga theater? Fringe show comes to Wake Up

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. No yoga experience needed.

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)

In other South Philly theater news (who knew there’d ever be any), Theater Exile at 13th and Reed launched a deal of a subscription series: four shows for as little as $45. Not bad. Previews for their Fringe show, “The Edge of Our Bodies,” start Thursday.

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