Rufus Wainwright:

Baroque was initially a non-compliment. If you called something baroque, you called it broken, chock full of meaningless artifice, crumbling under the weight of its own excess. But when I call Rufus Wainwright’s music baroque, I only mean its gorgeous, sweeping, melodramatic, sure, but pulled off so completely you can only swoon and hum along. You wouldn’t want to sing – your voice can’t compete with his. Mr. Wainwright’s bronzed baritone is too polished to do anything so crass as sing along to it. Instead, assume a position of awe, slack-jawed and with mouth agape. You’ll have two chances: Monday, November 16, and Tuesday, November 17 at the Paramount Theater. Trust me, it’s the right setting for Rufus.

Jacques Derrida – not a guy I would want to dance with. Probably he’d have no rhythm (anyway, his sentences didn’t). But somehow Verge Dance Company, one of Austin’s little known but hyper-eclectic and exciting dance companies, is going to deconstruct dance and the human body with their new act, the aptly named “Deconstructed.” They’ll be demolishing barriers through dance, all those sinewy muscles flexing and shining as bodies move through space on stage. Prepare to be blown away.

Deconstructed debuts tonight at 7:30pm at Boyd Vance Theater, with a second performance Saturday night at 7:30pm.

Austin Asian American Film Festival:

It only comes once a year, and no, I don’t mean Thanksgiving or Hanukkah or Christmas. Yesterday, the Austin Asian American Film Festival began screening the first of its 39 films, with the festival closing this Sunday. Offering only the best independent Asian cinema has to offer, AAAFF is a festival with all kinds of flavor. You’ve got experimental, documentary, feature-length narrative, and everything else possible with a video camera/roll of celluloid. Because you won’t be able to see many of these films anywhere else, act now and act fast. Get cultured; something is screening this instant – hop to it.

Check here for the screening schedule.
