  • The pipes and drums of the Black Watch

    The War of the Austrian Succession brought The Black Watch its first Battle Honor, at the Battle of Fontenoy in 1745. Shortly afterward, it distinguished itself at the Battle of Ticonderoga during the French and Indian War.
    At 7:30 p.m. March 11, the Santa Fe Concert Association presents the pipes and drums of the Black Watch, 3rd Battalion of the Royal Scottish Regiment, at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W. San Francisco St., Santa Fe.
    Although The Black Watch participated in many battles during the Revolutionary War, it clams no honor for these engagements against its American cousins. The red tackle or plume, which the Regiment considers a Battle Honor, was awarded in 1795. During the 19th century, The Black Watch served all over the world. The Regiment raised 27 battalions for service on all fronts during World War I. Its Battle Honors for the Great War include the Marne, Ypres and the Somme.
    The Regiment’s service since World War I has sent it to Borneo, Korea (where it fought with the U.S. Marine Corps at “The Hook”), several tours in Germany and, most recently, Hong Kong.
    Today,The Black Watch continues to serve as a fully operational Battalion in the modern British Army.

  • 'Land Water People Time'

    The Pajarito Environmental Education Center presents the award-winning documentary film, “Land Water People Time,” at 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Reel Deal Theater. The movie shows the relationships, cultural identity and meaning of connections between nature and places in Northern New Mexico.
    New Mexico filmmakers David Lindblom, Cynthia Jeanette Gomez and Daniel Valerio filmed “Land Water People Time” across 10,000-square-miles. Along the way, they collected stories from New Mexicans. These stories explore some of the modern challenges and tragedies of cultural and environmental losses, as well as hope for preservation of Northern New Mexico cultures and places.
    Lindblom, a Los Alamos native and Los Alamos High School graduate, is the director, editor and cameraperson for the film. He worked in the film industry in San Francisco with Wayne Wang and in New York with Martin Scorsese. Now he is back home in New Mexico, teaching at Northern New Mexico College. He will be on hand to introduce the film and answer questions afterward.

  • Dancers in Concert

    New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company, directed by Susan Baker-Dillingham, presents its February production, “Dancers in Concert,” this weekend at the Duane W. Smith Auditorium.
    The NMDT-PC production of “Dancers in Concert” features three original ballets choreographed by Baker-Dillingham: “Hear, Speak, See,” “Pandora’s Box” and “Cakewalk.”
    “I choreographed ‘Hear, Speak, See’ several years ago and wanted to rework it,” Baker-Dillingham said. “The dance is based on the physical gestures of ‘hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil,’ and is an exploration of the strengths of a woman wishing to leave a legacy behind as she moves forward through life. She opens the ears, mouths and eyes of those she is leaving behind in hopes of guiding them toward an easier path than the one she traveled.”

  • A look at the 'Rear Window'

    We never know what’s really happening behind closed doors, or even wide open windows. But that’s never stopped us humans from drawing our own conclusions about other people’s lives, about which we are sometimes much more interested than our own.
    The 1954 Alfred Hitchcock classic, “Rear Window” is not only a who dunnit, but a did anyone do it? And even the “it” is ambiguous: Was there a murder? Or did a lady take a train? Is a man a killer or simply in sales? And what’s going on with the little dog, anyhow?
    “Rear Window” stars James Stewart as professional photographer L.B. Jefferies, accustomed to traveling the world in search of the most gripping news stories. Because of a broken leg, he’s trapped in a wheelchair for seven weeks, with nothing to point his lens at but his neighbors’ windows.
    Jefferies has only one week left of his confinement and a beautiful girlfriend (Grace Kelly) to boot, but he’s cynical and prone to sinister imaginings, staring dejectedly at others who seem to actually be living, unlike, he seems to think, him.
    Eventually, he witnesses several pieces of odd behavior, which, taken together, can only suggest one of two possibilities. Either there is nothing going on, or a woman has been butchered into tiny pieces and packed into a trunk.

  • Opera about Nazi atrocity shown in Austria

    VIENNA (AP) — Thousands of children were murdered by the Nazis because they fell short of the Aryan ideal.
    On Friday, a hushed audience gathered in Austria's Parliament to watch the world premiere of an opera depicting how the Nazis methodically killed mentally or physically deficient children at a Vienna hospital during World War II.
    The killings were part of a greater campaign that led to the deaths of about 75,000 people — homosexuals, the handicapped, or others the Nazis called "unworthy lives" — and served as a prelude to the Holocaust.
    Austrians played a huge role in these and other atrocities of the era — nearly 800 children were killed at Vienna's Spiegelgrund psychiatric ward — and Friday's premiere of the opera "Spiegelgrund" was the latest installment of a national effort to atone for such acts in word and deed.
    The timing was picked to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, which will be observed worldwide Sunday, and the performance was streamed live on the Internet for international audiences.
