I agree. I want to party with those guys.
Tomorrow begins Hockey Day Minnesota 2010! And everyone is talking about hockey, that is they would be if it wasn’t for the Vikings game on Sunday.
Speaking of which Prince made an unusual fight song for the game and Citypages has the lyrics and video, sometimes you really have to wonder about the little fella.
Speaking of having-to-wonder the In the Loop-ers have Ten Artists, One Clear Message: A song for Haiti ummmm
Ever wanted to watch a Black Bear have cubs? Here’s your chance
MspMag talks about experimental theater Call Cutta in a Box @ the IDS Center
Only 300 people will get to experience German experimental theater troupe Rimini Protokoll’s Call Cutta in a Box: an International Phone Play, the first installment of the Walker Art Center’s 2010 Out There series—so spoiler alert if you’ve already got a ticket: the following may contain details you would rather learn by surprise, because you paid for them, rather than read about them here for free.
Call Cutta in a Box is less an avante-garde theater piece than it is a clever, amusing concept for creating a unique type of experience—one that only a person living at this moment in history could possibly have. That’s because there’s a lot of technology involved, but more on that later. There are 300 performances of Call Cutta in a Box, all for an audience of one: the ticket holder. Essentially, it’s just a phone conversation with a call-center operator in India, but as the conversation unfolds, and certain secrets and surprises are revealed, it becomes more of a lightly choreographed dance of the mind between two people who weren’t aware of the each other’s existence, but now share a connection, however tenuous, that wasn’t there before the conversation started.
Speaking of Art it’s time again for Art Shanty Projects on Medicine Lake.
I want to check out Black Bania
Black Bania is a smoking hot room on a frozen lake. A tipi will house a sauna room available for use by the public on a bring-your own-towel basis and provide additional space for restorative sauna related activity
A smoking hot room on a frozen lake? Sounds like trouble, yes please.
So let’s close it out with some trouble a local video posted by retrago
