Three to See Edmonton Events: Into the Night, ESO Rachmaninoff and The Teaches of Peaches

Article content

Into the Night: The latest show at dhARTworld with a lyrical nod to David Lynch favourite Julee Cruise which had its opening Thursday is a group show of high-contrast prints, drawing and paintings by Susan Fothergill, Judith Geher and Dana Holst.

The exhibition blends feminine imagery with depictions of prey animals, evoking a sense of danger and sensuality hiding under the cover of night. “It is often the darkest twilight hours when predators set out to hunt, or when lovers rendezvous in secret,” reads the show’s bill.

“The provocative pieces in the exhibition conjure primal emotions of fear and lust, affirming to their audience that origins of desire are unruly and animalistic.” Whew — steamy!

Rachmaninoff and Dance: Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff’s written-in-America, epic last piece Symphonic Dances is full of Easter eggs spanning his entire career, and it’s part of the ESO Pairings series with Ravel’s haunting choreographic poem, La valse.

Micheal Stern conducts this intentionally late-start concert with no intermission and a free drink. The extended, Fantastic Dances: Rachmaninoff and Ravel concerts run 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.
