Culture Shock

For the fifth year in a row, the Words Afire theater festival sets Albuquerque ablaze with a host of new work by up and coming UNM playwrights. From 10-minute wonders to full-length plays, Words Afire presents some of the best theater UNM's prestigious Robert Hartung Dramatic Writing Program has to offer. Every piece is written, directed, designed and performed by over 100 UNM students.

Gallery Review

Home Made

Galeria Artopia

We can dream, can't we, of some better world where art rather than money is king? Sure we can. Allan Rosenfield isn't some lazy armchair artopian, daydreaming about impossible societies built on a foundation of art. Since last year, he's succeeded in transforming his modest Near Northeast Heights home into his very own bona fide Artopia.

Art Magnified

Bellydance Superstars and the Desert Roses

South Broadway Cultural Center

There'll be a whole lotta shakin' goin' on when the Bellydance Superstars and the Desert Roses return to Albuquerque on Thursday, Oct. 28, at 8 p.m. to present one of the biggest belly dance spectacles on Earth. Performing a cross-section of Tribal, Egyptian and Cabaret styles, this popular show has rock star cred because it's produced by Miles Copeland, who served as manager for acts ranging from the Police to the Sex Pistols to REM. This one should be a doozy. $25 advance, $30 at the door. (800) 594-TIXX.

Art Magnified

1984

SolArts

Just in time for Big Brother Bush's re-election, the folks at ConLab—Conspiracy Laboratory Theatre—are putting up a staged version of George Orwell's chilling negative utopian novel, 1984, adapted by playwright Wayne Rawley. Directed by Rafael Gallegos, this multimedia production, which incorporates work by video artists and sculptors, should offer a nice escapist relief from pondering the dire consequences of a second Bush term. The show will occur at SolArts (712 Central SE) every evening at 8 p.m. through Nov. 2 with an additional show on Halloween at 2 p.m. $10 general, $8 students/seniors. 244-0049.

Book Review

It's About the Evil, Stupid!

Lords of Chaos: The Bloody Rise of the Satanic Metal Underground, New Edition

As a historical document, Lords of Chaos does a fine, detailed job of contextualizing black metal in terms of its cousins, namely death metal and heavycore. It dedicates several chapters to the history of the genre, focusing mostly on Venom and Bathory, the two bands most widely credited with having spawned a more radical scene in Norway. Both Venom and Bathory, however, were so tongue-in-cheek about their “Satanism,” one would have to be a moron to buy into it. Apparently, though, a rather large handful of Norwegian kids didn't see it that way back in the early '90s. Or they were morons.

Book Review

Something Wicked

The Night Country

Writing fiction is an occult art, and no American novelist wields his Ouija board quite like Stewart O'Nan. In just 10 years, O'Nan has published 11 books, each one embracing an entirely new perspective. Everyday People conjured a blighted Pittsburgh neighborhood, while The Speed Queen spoke from the perspective of a death-row felon recording her final appeal.

Science and the Trinity: The Christian Encounter with Reality

Both a Cambridge physicist and an Anglican priest, Polkinghorne has already written extensively on connections between science and Christianity. In his latest book, he uses simple language to explain his complex ideas about how Christians should understand objective reality as revealed by scientific inquiry.
