Culture Shock


In Dale Dunn's new play, Body Burden, a middle-aged woman recovering from thyroid cancer returns to her hometown of Los Alamos to confront her past. Set against the backdrop of the development of the atomic bomb, the play features six characters, including the ghost of Robert Oppenheimer and a time-traveling girl scout.

Dunn conducted extensive research before she began writing the play. She was particularly interested in radiation experiments conducted on Los Alamos children during the '60s.

The playwright grew up in Los Alamos herself. After developing a theater career in New York, she returned to New Mexico and now resides in Santa Fe.

This world premiere production is directed by Lou Clark. It runs through Oct. 7 at the Adobe Theater (9813 Fourth Street NW). Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. $12 general, $10 students/seniors. 898-9222.

Drawings and models by Bart Prince, Albuquerque's most innovative architect, will be on display at the American Institute of Architects Gallery through Oct. 12. The Albuquerque native is the famed creator of the UFO house in Nob Hill (he hates when people call it that). The structure also serves as his residence. There are a handful of other examples of his work sprinkled around the city.

The exhibit serves as a rare opportunity to peer into Prince's creative process. Much of the work displayed in the show has never been exhibited in Albuquerque. For details, call AIA Albuquerque's Executive Director Cecilia Portal at 242-9800.
