    DANCE MOViES

      One of the earliest ways Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s EMPAC made its mark in the arts world—even before EMPAC’s imposing hillside structure was completed—was with their DANCE MOViES commissions. Filmmakers from all over the world have participated in the creation of films developed at and/or commissioned by RPI’s arts juggernaut; the latest five dance films [...]

    Half Waif

      Nandi Rose Plunkett, daughter of an Irish-American father and Indian mother, grew up listening to Celtic and Indian music as well as Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush and Tori Amos, then studied classical music in college. Not surprisingly, in her Brooklyn-based project Half Waif, she creates a kaleidoscopic blend of sounds that conjure classical, experimental, [...]

    Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild Live

      How in the world did an Ohio zookeeper become so darn famous? Judging from his appearances on TV over the years, from his too-many-to-count visits with David Letterman to his own Emmy-winning, syndicated nature show Into the Wild, Hanna’s appeal is a folksy mix of solid expertise, goofy charm and irresistible critters. Tomorrow (Friday), [...]

    Nice Work If You Can Get It

      A show packed from beginning to end with songs by George Gershwin is, by definition, of interest. And, given the emotional and comic range of the lyrics penned by George’s brother Ira, will also be a lot of fun. Nice Work If You Can Get It, which arrives tonight at Proctors for one show [...]

  • Tim Reynolds

      Tim Reynolds is a wizard. Forget for a second that he’s the lead guitarist in Dave Matthews Band. (Although he did encourage a younger Matthews—who tended bar at a venue in Charlottesville, Va., where he performed—to pursue his music career in the ’90s. He also introduced him to most of his original band members, [...]
