Free & easy events

By David Malitz

From worldly beats to an all day anime festival, there are plenty of fun activities on this week's calendar that don't require any money.

Thursday
Brown Bag Thursdays
There's more to actor Ed Gero than Sweeney Todd. Meet the man behind Signature Theatre's incarnation of the demon barber and learn about his long career as a Shakespearean actor during this lunchtime discussion.

Friday
'The Running Fence Revisited'
The new exhibit from experimental artist Christo is accompanied by the premiere of a film created specifically for the show, "The Running Fence Revisited." The movie will be followed by a conversation with director Wolfram Hissen and Christo.

Saturday
Cherry Blossom Anime Marathon
This annual day-long festival of Japanese animation includes three feature-length screenings and a costume contest. Tickets are first-come, first-serve, so arrive early. Doors open 30 minutes before each show.

Sunday
'Editions With Additions: Working Proofs By Jasper Johns'
It's closing day for this exhibit, which gives a unique view into how the iconic modern artist employed chalk, ink and graphite as he tweaked and toyed with his pieces.

Update: We moved events that took place earlier in the week to the bottom of the post, so you can see the our pick for today at the top.

Monday
Dendê & Hãhãhães
Things get moving at Millennium Stage today with Afro-Brazilian beats that prompt an irresistible urge to dance. Percussionist Dendê, who has been working professionally as a musician since he was 14 years old, leads his band in a mix of global beats from samba to reggae.

Tuesday
'Revolutionary! Isadora Duncan'
Word Dance Theater presents a multimedia production of the life and times of Isadora Duncan. Actress Sarah Pleydell portrays Isadora, while company members Valerie Durham, Cynthia Word and Ingrid Zimmer perform Duncan's original choreography using the groundbreaking American artist's musical pieces and words.

Wednesday
Notoriety
Why is this the ideal midweek DJ night? Because it's not too rowdy, but never so sleepy that you wonder why you bothered going out in the first place. Expect laid-back tunes with gently pulsing beats, classic films and tasty mojitos.
