Observing the fantastic world of The Convolution of Pip and Twig, it’s as if you’ve stepped through the looking glass and into a children’s pop-up book. The minimal, vibrant set uses low tech manipulations, visual metaphor and physical magic to tell a story almost entirely without words, and Performer’s Exchange Project members Sian Richards and Kara McLane Burke (above) are mesmerizing as twins so passionately codependent that they operate in synchrony.

Through 3/1. $15-20, times vary. Live Arts, 123 E. Water St. 977-4177.
