Ipso facto X-Acto
Any way you slice it, nothing’s quite like paper art. Traditional papel picado is a cheerful, humble Mexican papercraft often used to adorn and embellish public spaces. But ¡Papel! Pico, Rico y Chico, opening at the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) on Friday, June 20, at 6pm, proves the form’s wondrous flexibility.

They just wanna dance, dance, dance
By Sam Adams
Marjorie Neset is a self-described "obsessive traveler and geographer." In 2008, a research grant landed her in Maputo, Mozambique, to investigate the local dance scene. There she connected with Panaibra Gabriel Canda—one of the country's foremost dance figures. A few weekends ago, Neset found herself on an 800-mile road trip from Los Angeles to Albuquerque, delivering Canda and his guitarist, Jorge Domingos, to the 11th annual installation of Global DanceFest.
