OFF-LEASH AREA

Friday-Sunday: Off-Leash Area revives its 2005 Ivey award-winning show “Psst!” this weekend. Based on the work of Norwegian graphic novelist JASON, it tells the story of a small-town factory where love and loss direct the actions of a 13-member cast. Evocative black-and-white masks, live painting, stilt walking, surreal images, movement, theater and a minimalist tone marked with moments of grandeur all are part of an evening that will appeal to imaginations of all ages. With choreography by Jennifer Isle, masks and sets by Paul Herwig and an original score by Marc Doty. (7:30 p.m. Fri-Sat., 7 p.m. Sun., $21. The Cowles Center, 528 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls., 612-206-3600, www.thecowlescenter.org.)
