Ethnic dance world explored on KVIE

If you receive KVIE TV and love dance as artistic expression, you might want to tune in on Wednesday, Nov. 21, to “Arts Alive: Dance! Culture in Motion,” at 7:30 p.m. It is a documentary that explores the world of ethnic dance, featuring Japanese taiko drumming, traditional Mexican dancing, Appalachian clogging, salsa, tango, African dance and Mien dances. The dancers and groups in this program discuss how they use dance to strengthen their rich cultural traditions and to preserve these traditions for future generations.

ViewFinder is the name of the show. Go to and click on viewfinder for more information.

Prize-winning play to be read Sunday

Readers Theatre is presenting Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” at Nevada City’s Miners Foundry on Sunday at 2 p.m. Directed by Tim O’Connor, the play won the playwright his second Pulitzer Prize in 1938 and set the theatrical world on its ear. A cast of 14 dramatically read, rather than act, their parts on a “suggestive” rather than full stage and in less than full costume.

Admission is $12 at the door. Contact (530) 265-5040 or for more information.
