Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.09.08

.This Week's Calendar | Ongoing Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

Few films are as hard to swallow as Darren Aronofsky’s adaptation of Hubert Selby, Jr.’s Requiem for a Dream. As if the 2000 cult film’s cinematography doesn’t contain enough gruesome images of drug abuse, amputated arms, prostitution and monster refrigerators, its harrowing score performed by the Kronos Quartet brings to mind a postmodern slasher flick with fairytale entrails. Kronos, an experimental string quartet based in San Francisco, pushes the boundaries of classical arrangements and instrumentation, always seeking out the freshest take on a stodgy and stuffy composition. The Requiem suite should be the showstopper in their performance at the UO’s EMU Ballroom this week, but the Kronos’ program also includes a diverse selection of songs from Mexican-rockers Café Tacuba, Palestinian collective Ramallah Underground, Serbian composer Aleksandra Verbalov, Indian sarangi player Ram Narayan and minimalist work by Steve Reich. See Thursday, Oct. 16 Calendar.

Home prices are a-fallin’ (good for buyers, bad for sellers) but domestic Donatellos and remodeling Raphaels can at least take comfort in sprucing up their nests with handcrafted pottery at the Clayfest and get new ideas for building that fallout bailout shelter at the Lane County Home Improvement Show, both at the Lane County Fairgrounds this week. Clayfest will showcase pottery, vessels, jewelry and tile by many regional artisans, including Michael Fromme (pictured), Faith Rahill, Ken Standhardt, Diana Bazanele and Tracie Manso. One donation of canned food will earn you admission to the Home Improvement Show, where exhibiting firms will display everything from barnwood furniture to garden ornaments. Presentations, how-to clinics, free schwag and storybook-themed floral and foliage displays round out a day at the fairgrounds. See www.eugenehomeshow.com and Calendar.

Choreographed hip hop dance deserves more credit. Long since criticized for trying to impose a rigid structure on an inherently improvisational form of dance, hip hop-style dance is slowly beginning to peek its head into the major ballet studios and classes. Curmudgeons are finally realizing that all dance (and music) styles are inherently improvisational. Duh! Under the “direction and inspiration” of Eileen King (of King’s Krew), guest performers from Dance Northwest, Urban Pulse, Unseen, The EDGE, Zapp and Phenomenon will pool their energies into Dance to the Future, a one-night dance extravagnza that features styles from the past, present and (literally impossible) future. See Saturday Calendar.
