Professor Diablo’s True Revue

When: Tue., April 24, 7 p.m. 2012

If Full Frame left you hungry for more documentary work, Center for Documentary Studies writer-in-residence Duncan Murrell serves up a buffet you won't want to miss with Professor Diablo's True Revue. This new bimonthly series, co-sponsored by CDS and the Casbah and curated by Murrell, features performances by writers, musicians, visual artists and others who use documentary field work and research in their creative process. Each evening will be themed; this first one is "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea." Writer Donovan Hohn reads from his debut book about rubber ducks, plastic and oceanic subterfuge. Media artist Marina Zurkow, whose manga and animation work has earned her a Guggenheim Fellowship, investigates the petrochemical side of plastics. And musician Django Haskins reveals himself to be as protean as plastic. As Professor Diablo, Murrell is aiming for an event that's "more than a reading, more than an opening, more than a night of music—a performance that's unique and unexpected, and yet seems harmonious and inevitable when it's done." It starts at 7 p.m., and it's free. —Chris Vitiello
