Microcinema projectionist Peter Schilling, you’re relieved and excited when a documentary comes along that doesn’t exploit Motown’s tragic fall as a great American city. Peter says based on advance notice, Detropia is one such film. Detropia is being screened at Intermedia Arts in Minneapolis on Feb. 8 and 9th at 7pm as part of its [[ RE ]] FRAME series.
Picture it, says Twin Cities actress Michelle Guertin, an evening of bountiful theater created and directed by women who are fellow Minnesotans, neighbors, maybe even friends. Michelle says that’s what the “After the Apple” theater festival promises, with each performance containing nine separate playlets. The festival was put together by Table Salt Productions and is on stage at the Playwright’s Center in Minneapolis Feb. 7 – 23.
Chances are pretty darn good that if the Minneapolis indie rock band Bollywood has a local gig, writer, artist and musician Sarah Moeding will be there. Sarah confesses she’s been captured by the group’s swirling psychedelia and video enhanced stage shows. Bollywood celebrates the release of its new EP, “OK Animal” at Cause Spirits and Sound Bar in Minneapolis on Saturday, Feb. 9th.
