Satisfy a medley of cravings this weekend when Silvanus Slaughter, author of the historically based yet wholly fictional novel "sweet piece,"
performs a one-hour multi-media show complete with jazz, space-funk, electronica and imagery. The show, "The Constellations Compromised"
is a Slaughter production and will be accompanied by music arranged by Parrish Anderson. Oh, and let us not ignore the promise of dancing girls. Slaughter--a writer, playwright and film director--has been described as part Marcello Mastroianni on a party binge in Fellini's La Dolce Vita
and part Rod Sterling narrating the original Twilight Zone
. Can you imagine that? No, me neither, but that might just be the reason to check out Slaughter's stage performance which promises to be a curious spectacle and worth the $5 ticket. Catch the "12 Songs of Love Arrested by Space and Time" at the Blue Coffee Company at 202 W. Corcoran St. in Durham. Friday, April 11, at 8 p.m.
