REVIEW: Intimate, thought-provoking work by DeFrantz, Stewart

At the Thursday performance of “where did I think I was going? [moving into signal],” performed and created by Thomas F. DeFrantz and  Kenneth David Stewart, the audience could ask the same thing. “Where did we, the audience, think we were going in this theater with a dancer and musician and a network of cables, cameras and laptop computers?”

Graedons: Only use Vicks as intended

Q. Years ago, my mother, who was a nurse, used Vicks VapoRub almost as a cure-all for us children. One hot summer day, my family and friends were out in the yard enjoying themselves while I was in the house suffering silently with a very sore rectum.

Greenberg fall preview: This season, Rauschenberg, Miro and Rembrandt

The fall season is the busiest time of the year; school begins, the leaves turn and art in all its forms competes for our attention. This year is no exception. The next months will see art exhibitions of the giants from the golden age Dutch and Flemish artists of the 17th century to those of the 20th. And while modern painting was moving off the walls and out of the frame, a mechanical object called the camera was changing everything we thought we knew about the visible world and we’ll see what that looks like.

DPS Corner: All children, schools matter

Last week 3,100 eager students poured into our five year-round schools for the start of the school year. They were excited to meet new classmates, teachers and challenges, and their energy was catching. As I visited these schools on the first day, I felt just as excited. It was a new beginning for all of us.
