Sexy Monster Mash
There's no rule that says horror canít be sexy. Zahara's Bellydance Fusion & Gothic Bellydance brings Carnival Noir 2009 to Cincinnati this Saturday night. Horreur Classique is a stage show that puts a fresh twist on classic horror movie characters. And speaking of twists, the bellydancers will contort to original music by Mayan Ruins, Kevin Hartnell and many more. Join Sorceress Draconia and Wizard Loren the Black as they summon ghosts, zombies and other classic monsters. Opening festivities begin at 7:00 p.m. with the show running from 8:00-10:30 p.m., and stick around for an after-party. Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased through The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center.
Un-think what you know about art and step into the Contemporary Art Centerís UnMuseum-a floor in the museum dedicated to introducing people to contemporary art by reaching beyond gallery guides and learning stations by commissioning first-rate artists to create works of art especially for young audiences. Their latest exhibit by Cederic Cox, Soul Within Structure, features paintings centered around Coxís fascination with urban cityscape. Cox draws inspiration from his own neighborhood, Over-The-Rhine. Exhibit opens Saturday from 1:00-4:00 p.m. and continues through March 8th.
Novels, monologues and poems, these are just a few ways people choose to share a story but for the more cinematically adept, they share stories through film. This weekend the Covington Screen Test Film Project will tell the story of Covington through Greater Cincinnati filmmakers and artists who came together to produce and showcase a variety of films. Professional, amateur and student filmmakers alike submitted works for the Screen Test as well as the Film Zero collaboration. The Film Project is part of Covington's Full Spectrum and will take place Sunday from 12:00-5:00 p.m. at The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center. Come out for an entire day of original films, learn about the local film industry and perhaps even catch the bug and be inspired to tell your own story through film.
