Kinetik is a new national art/music/culture mag based here in Utah. Who knew! 

From our friend Annalisa Millo who has been working the launch:

"2017 hit us like a waterfall of magical adobe bricks! with BenJamin Empenidas at the helm gathering interviews and content for the last 1.5 years, building a website for the last 7 months, and now tying it all together with our print mag, we’ve been working relentlessly on making some magic happen and we’re ecstatic to announce the launch of Kinetik Magazine

[ Issue 1 ] previously unreleased and unpublished features include interviews with Dirtybird records boss man Claude VonStroke and Autograf, a report from techno mecca Berghain / Panorama Bar in Berlin, photo essay from of Shambhala Music Festival, an exploration of gender disparity in music by Huxley Anne, review of Sundance 2017 film, the handmaiden, and a ton more. 

In fact, we have more archived content than we know what to do with so we thought hey, let’s start a magazine. Who does that? You can’t just do that...

[ LAUNCH PARTY ] we’ll be handing out demo copies at the launch party this Thursday at Clubhouse on South Temple, then distributing nationwide. launch party features an all-female dj lineup, we’ll be live-streaming the set and event, Boiler Room style."

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE OFFICE FOR EQUITY AND DIVERSITY. Equal parts community organizer, Elizabethan fool and bedazzled bon vivant, Taylor Mac has created internationally award-winning performance events that at once provoke and embrace his diverse audience. Mac is beloved for his iconic beauty, disarming vulnerability, and soaring spirit. Drawing from his current project, A 24 Decade History of Popular Music, which was developed in part at the Sundance Institute Theatre Lab and includes an epic performance over 24 continuous hours, this show will kick off MLK Week on campus and feature songs from 1946-1976, from the Civil Rights Movement to the Stonewall Riots.

Multi-show package discounts available. | Price: $20 - $25

NOW-ID Send up Holiday Classic With it's 'Not Cracker'

Art, Salt Lake City, Theatre & DanceJesse WalkerComment

One part holiday party, one part performance. Interdisciplinary Dance Company NOW-ID - in partnership with UMOCA, Artemis and the B-Boy Federation present their own twist on E.T.A. Hoffmann's 1816 holiday horror fantasy.

It's Not Cracker is a new, abbreviated, contemporary rendition of The Nutcracker, evoking the original in familiarity and seasonality, but reaches further toward the unique, humorous, diverse and seriousness of the original tale. An extended Tchaikovsky suite will be remixed and complimented by DJ Artemis, paired with dancers Brad Beakes, Tara McArthur and the B-Boy Federation corps.

Celebrate the season with us on December 16 & 17 at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art main gallery (amid the works of OBJECT(ED), in its final days) for complimentary gløgg, and choreography by Charlotte Boye-Christensen and collaborators. Dynamic contrasts in setting, music, and dance will leave you with a new perspective on the holidays.

Dancers & Collaborators:  Chris Owens (Monkey), Samnang Heng (Heng), Alonzo Cooper (Mini Cooper), Ben Ukoh-Eke (Wesley Snipes), Max Crebs (Baby Blue), Josh Perkins (Text)

December 16 and 17, 2016.
6:30 PM - Mingling and Gløgg.  
7:30 PM - Performance
