Art Magnified

One Inch Equals 25 Miles

Outpost Performance Space

And now for something completely different. The ensemble Out of Context, founded and directed by J.A. Deane, will be performing this Friday, Dec. 10, at 8 p.m. at the Outpost. The event serves as the launch party for One Inch Equals 25 Miles, a collection of experimental prose pieces by Santa Fe author Sumner Carnahan. Carnahan's books are designed to be performed with music. In this case, Out of Context will create a live improvised musical accompaniment to recorded readings from the book. It's innovative. It's rare. It might just blow your brain right out of your skull. $15 general, $10 Outpost members. 268-0044.

The Eight: Reindeer Monologues

Cell Theatre

You might think working for old Saint Nick would be just about the sweetest gig on the planet, but you would be wrong. In Jeff Goode's The Eight: Reindeer Monologues, Santa's "elite" team of eight tiny reindeer dish the dirt on the big guy, and, trust me, he ain't the jolly twinkle-toed grandpa figure he pretends to be. Directed by Robb Sisneros, a production of the play starring some of Albuquerque's finest opens this week at the Cell Theatre. Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. Sundays at 2 p.m. $22 general, $17 students/seniors. Group rates available. Runs through Dec. 19. For adults only! 766-9412.

Book Review

Mystery Unsolved

September Sacrifice

In Albuquerque, the mere mention of Girly Chew Hossencofft's name inevitably evokes a reaction. Her story captured headlines in the local media, on and off, for years following her disappearance from a Northeast Heights apartment complex on Sept. 9, 1999. The next morning her bloodied clothes were found windswept along a desert highway near Magdalena, but her body has never been found.

The Gift that Really Keeps on Giving

A good way to start is by taking a look at ArtX3, an innovative holiday collaboration between OFFCenter Community Arts Project, VSA Arts of New Mexico and Out ch'Yonda.
