Power Ties No Match For Power Gown

by David Sepulveda | Mar 27, 2015 1:13 pm | Comments (6)

DAVID SEPULVEDA PHOTO Two young women keeping a brisk pace in the cold of a dark spring evening briefly paused to gaze upward.

“That’s cool,” said one of them, as they glimpsed a towering, feminine figure bedecked in a flowing gown of cascading neckties.

Richard Pryor, Harry Potter, Cantonese opera singers, and The Stylistics co-exist (in various media), and Beethoven meets Schoenberg. Easter Day coincides with the start of a humanists’ conference. A cultural melting pot, as the snow continues to melt in April.

Ode To Daggett Street

by Alexis Zanghi | Mar 27, 2015 12:00 pm | Comments (5)

Fake Babies Photo When I first came to Daggett Street Square in 2007, I was taken by its rambling hallways, its pulley-operated elevator. The building may not have been insulated, but it was insular. By that time, few live-work spaces remained in New Haven. There had been others — on River Street; in the Munniemaker cigar factory on State Street; at Chapel and Church, above what is now Gotham Citi—all now shut down.

Now we can add Daggett Street Square to the list: Last week officials ordered it cleared out.

Repression Rendered Revelatory

by Lucy Gellman | Mar 27, 2015 11:56 am

Lucy Gellman Photo A cuckoo, popping out from its home to wish listeners a piercing, rhythmic hello. Upper strings coming in as a dizzying, modified melody. A deeper-throated cuckoo in a far-away nest, his throbbing birdsong flowing and out of conversation.

Ceschi’s “Broken Bone Ballads” Has Key To City

by Brian Slattery | Mar 27, 2015 8:12 am

“I’m every lung that’s breathing in this filthy city waste / I’m trick turning street walker / Mary full of grace / undocumented worker wage slave / I’m needle pierced vein / I am black rose on Grandmother’s grave,” Ceschi tells us on “Elm City Ballad,” an ode to the place he was raised and the first song released from his new album.

And then: “Love me, city, ‘till I’m gray / Elm City, love me safe / Love me ‘till I am erased.”

“Song Of The Sea” Offers Truths, Huge And Hand-Drawn

by Thomas Breen | Mar 26, 2015 2:11 pm

“Children deserve not lesser films but greater ones because their imaginations can take in larger truths and bigger ideas.” So film critic Roger Ebert wrote in his review of 1994’s The Secret of Roan Inish, a story of a young Irish girl who learns that her family tree includes a few selkies, the magical half-human, half-seal creatures of Irish folklore. As The Wizard of Oz, The Iron Giant, and the best works of Pixar and Studio Ghibli attest, however, when made well, these children’s films resonate just as deeply with adults.

As does Song of the Sea, the new Oscar-nominated animated film from director Tomm Moore. It creates a splendid and disturbing world in which children triumph, not through naïveté or some immaculate purity, but through courage, love, and an openness to that which they cannot easily understand. (The film is Song of the Sea currently playing now at the Bow Tie Criterion Cinemas, 86 Temple St.)

Curator Channels General at New K of C Museum Show

by Allan Appel | Mar 26, 2015 11:02 am

Allan Appel Photo Knights of Columbus museum curator Bethany Sheffer’s great-grandfather, Sheridan Phillip Sheffer, was a World War I veteran. A relative from a generation before him, still unidentified, served in the cavalry under General Philip Sheridan.

That general, who commanded Union cavalry in the Civil War, must have made quite an impression, because Sheridan is now a full-fledged Sheffer family name. Sheridan is Sheffer’s brother’s middle name.
