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.
