The Untapped Potential of the Spirituality/Consciousness Community
Saints, shamans, mystics, priests and gurus have been telling us for generations that we are much more than mere physical beings.

Emanuel Ax is the essential pianist of our time - the Los Angeles Times praises "his greatness, his overwhelming authority as a musician, technician, and probing intellect."

Together, they are the leading performers of the brilliant but rarely heard repertoire for two pianos. In high demand, they play only a handful of public concerts together each year, but this area merits a special visit: Nozaki, the daughter of a Duke biochemist, grew up right here in Durham. Their homecoming performance in Baldwin Auditorium includes Mozart’s only sonata for two pianos, a joyful dialogue between instruments, and Brahms’ 'Haydn Variations', which follows a single theme through eight different styles. Tickets $42-$52, $15 age 30 and under, $10 Duke students.

The Sochi Project
Photographer Rob Hornstra and writer/filmmaker Arnold van Bruggen have been practicing "slow journalism" in Sochi, Russia - host of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games - since 2007, documenting the changes in the area. This newsprint exhibition, specially designed for Paris Photo 2012, focuses primarily on recent work and depicts several contrasting themes from the project. As van Bruggen writes, on the The Sochi Project website: "Never before have the Olympic Games been held in a region that contrasts more strongly with the glamour of the Games than Sochi. Just twenty kilometers away is the conflict zone Abkhazia. To the east, the Caucasus Mountains stretch into obscure and impoverished breakaway republics such as North Ossetia and Chechnya. On the coast, old Soviet-era sanatoria stand shoulder to shoulder with the most expensive hotels and clubs of the Russian Riviera. By 2014 the area around Sochi will have been changed beyond recognition." FREE admission.
