State of the Arts

Tea and flashbacks? Maybe not. But '60s survivors may still want to stage a sit-in - politely, of course - at Dobrá Tea in Burlington this Wednesday, April 16, when local author Laban Hill reads from his latest book, America Dreaming: How Youth Changed America, from 8 to 8:30 p.m. Though it's intended as a young-adult book, the vibrant volume also provides a trip, er, step back in time for members of the Woodstock generation. Hill's appearance is part of Dobrá's monthly open mike/reading series, held the third Wednesday of every month . . . If a picture says a thousand words, what does the same photo taken 20 years later say? Award-winning National Geographic photojournalist Steve McCurry got to find out: His famous 1984 image "Afghan Girl," of a sad but luminous child in a refugee camp, took on extra poignancy when he was able to locate and photograph her again 20 years later. This Sunday, April 20, at Middlebury College's Dana Auditorium, McCurry gives a free talk aptly titled "Unveiling the Face of War," at 4:30 p.m. . . . Peek through the windows or come inside: That's the invitation from local choreographer Lynn Ellen Schimoler and the FlynnArts Dance Company. They'll be hosting an open rehearsal of Schimoler's new work, Twilight, this Sunday, April 20, at 4 p.m. Vermont drummers Brandon Klarich, Andrew Suits and William Noel will keep the beat . . .
