An international symposium and its underground offshoot

Cultural geographer Ronald Horvath wasn’t thinking of a specific place when he conjured the concept of “machine wilderness” in the ’60s. It helped him describe what he saw taking place across the American Southwest, as technology gradually transfigured the feral landscape. But the phrase describes New Mexico well. And it’s the driving force behind this year’s International Symposium on Electronic Art, taking place here in Albuquerque in September.

Killer Rehearsal

Mother Road opens doors to the public in advance of its September production

Taps flowed, pizza was passed around and old friends joked together in the basement of JC’s NYPD pizzeria. As the cast and crew of Mother Road Theatre Company’s upcoming production of The Killer Angels gathered for its first rehearsal, the air hummed. I felt that familiar flutter as the first page of the script turned. Here we go! I thought to myself. This is the best part—the part where the magic of making a play all begins.

What's the Buzz?

Jesus Christ Superstar

Jesus Christ Superstar's four-night run at Popejoy Hall commences on Thursday, Oct 17 at 7:30pm and continues through the weekend with an Oct. 18 performance at 7:30pm. There are two performances of the Grammy Award-winning pop opera on Saturday, Oct. 19 with a matinee at 2pm and an evening show at 8pm as well as two shows on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 2pm and at 6:30pm. Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice wrote this one so, in concert with a national touring company, expect some high class musical hijinks as seen through the eyes of Judas, the most unreliable narrator of all time. Plenty of super-cool songs populate the narrative, including stuff you may vaguely recall from childhood if your folks were also going to guitar mass when the double-album version of this first appeared in American pop culture in the early to mid-1970s. Tickets for this all-ages theatrical experience cost between $58 and $98, so render unto Caesar and all that.
