Back in the 1990s, Austin launched a new arts group every other week. Despite the difficulties with finding suitable and affordable space to play, that trend seems to have returned.

This particular company hopes to bridge the arts communities in Los Angeles and Austin. While in its gestation, Filigree presented a well-received version of Daniel Arnold and  Medina Hahn‘s “Any Night” in both cities.

Filigree’s first season starts off officially with Harold Pinter‘s reverse-action “Betrayal,” starring David MoxhamEmily Rankin and J. Kevin Smith. It runs Sept. 28-Oct. 8 at the Santa Cruz Center.
