Culture Shock

Returned to the World

Craig Childs' latest book explores pre-history and what it means to modernity

Craig Childs is in wonder of pre-history in all its obscurity, as presentiment to life as we know it today. Relating to ancient humans is an exercise in empathy and stretches the imagination.

Arts Interview

Feeling for the Edge

Survey of Patrick Nagatani's early photograhy illumines a master

We speak with curator Mary Statzer about Patrick Nagatani, who created smart, often surprising photographs that hummed with their questions on spirituality, the construction of self, how we heal and how we fit into the puzzle of the natural world.

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.
