In the fashion of the nations largest discount retailers, HERE Arts Centers own mart features an endless variety of fashionable products at great prices. But instead of galoshes, DVD players, and dog food, Culturemart 2009 offers something certainly more substantial—though you cant take it home. This years sampler of creations by resident artists includes previews of new works by collage-composer Nick Brooke (Border Towns), puppet choreographer Michael Bodel (Sonnambula), and an adaptation of Ibsens The Lady From the Sea, directed by HERE Artistic Director Kristin Marting (Sounding). In conjunction with the Under the Radar Festival, two full-length productions will also be presented: Ray Lees Siren, about the hidden world of electromagnetic radiation, and Removable Parts, Corey Dargels acclaimed musical about voluntary amputation.
