Culture Shock

It's hard not to love a story about the blood-sucking undead. Bram Stoker's immortal story has been made and remade into so many different forms it would be impossible to list them all. A campy theatrical version called The Passion of Dracula transports the story to the English countryside in 1911 where several young girls have died under mysterious circumstances. Could the new neighbor, a long-in-the-tooth fellow named Count Dracula, possibly be responsible? No, of course not. Don't be silly. Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m. $18 general, $15 seniors, $13 students. Runs through Oct. 31. 242-4750.

The Vortex Theatre and the Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice have joined forces this month to create a poetry and theater event aimed at exploring issues of war and peace. The event begins with performances by local Albuquerque poets and concludes with the New Mexico premiere of Seth Gillim's play The Open Palm, directed by Lee Francis. The show runs through Oct. 31. Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 6 p.m. $12. A portion of proceeds will go to the Peace and Justice Center. 247-8600.

OFFCenter Community Art Project has found itself some hip new digs at 808 Park SW, across from Robinson Park at Eighth Street and Central. The nonprofit art organization will be celebrating the opening of the new space with a reception on Saturday, Oct. 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Includes refreshments, live music and giant puppets! Need I say more? I didn't think so. For details, call 247-1172 or just stop by during the event.

When Rujeko Dumbutshena of Zimbabwe and Chris Berry—the directors of the Blue Tribe School of Music and Dance—moved to New York City, they left a large tightly knit community of African dancers in their wake. Romy Keegan, an African dance expert and former member of the Blue Tribe Dance Company, has taken up the mantle. She's reopened the school under the new name of the Maple Street Dance Space (115 Maple SE). Keegan and associates will be holding an open house performance this Sunday, Oct. 17, at 11 a.m. For more information, call 342-1556.
