Dancers from Keshet’s professional company

Culture Shock

Keshet—Several nationally acclaimed choreographers—Henning Rübsam of Sensedance in New York City and Maggie Bergeron of Minneapolis' Shapiro and Smith Dance, as well as Keshet Dance Company's founder and artistic director, Shira Greenberg—have created a series of original new works specifically for Keshet Dance Company. These new pieces will be featured at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE) on Saturday, May 13, at 8 p.m. during Keshet's inaugural repertory concert, Delirious Whisper. “This is the first time we're having a production that is purely focused on our professional company,” says Greenberg. “Before this, we've always incorporated mixed ability dancers from the community.” Next year, Keshet plans to tour a new repertory concert to the Minnesota Fringe Festival and several places in Mexico. Greenberg is particularly excited about the idea of touring in Mexico. “That way,” she says, “we can sit on the beach between shows.” Tickets to Delirious Whisper are $16 general, $12 students/seniors. 224-9808.

Ben Lowney takes a cruise on the weirdest bike in his collection. “I saw an ad for the 'Swing Bike' in 1975,” says Lowney. “Donny Osmond used to ride one on stage during 'The Osmond Show'.” The rear tire has its own fork that's attached to the frame with springs. This allows both the front and the rear tire to turn. Lowney says you can do all kinds of tricks on it, including riding with one tire on the curb and one in the gutter. When I took it for a spin, I could barely stay on it—it made me feel drunk.

Ben Lowney lets me take his antique bikes for a spin

My job isn't always a big sloppy barrel of monkey fun. Last week, though, when Ben Lowney let me take his antique bikes out for a roll, I honestly felt like I had the best job in the world.

A Gay Ol’ Time

A Writer's Life

A writer’s life can be so solitary and formless that it would hardly be a surprise if every aspiring scribbler had Wallace Stevens’ poem "The American Sublime"—“What wine does one drink? / What bread does one eat?"—tacked above his desk. For those who write themselves into being one sentence at a time, a little guidance can be necessary.
