Crisler
By GAYLE POLLARD
Smiling, smirking, and smug,
Tina Turner slinked on stage and,
with a little help from her
friends, frenzied Crisler Arena.
After enduring Shadowfax, a
mediocre, deadening D e t r o i t
group, the crowd was ready for
the revue, the dynamic Ike and
Tina Turner Revue, complete
with three grooving Ikettes, and
an eight piece band backup, The
Family Vibes, hip enough to solo.
Before the stars strutted on,
the band moved the audience
from unresponsive to anticipat-
ing.
Soon Tina appeared. Propped
up on a stool next to her Ike at

trips

on

Ike

and

Tina

the organ, the songtress crooned,
slower paced than the wild wo-
man most regard her as.
Then after the Ikettes did it
alone for a while, Ike and Tina
returned to jam. Wearing a brief,
revealing outfit of multicolored
tassels, Tina stepped out in red
satin shoes, ready to move. And
the Ikettes helped.
Flinging their long tresses, the
b e w i g g e d singers smilingly
danced intricate, quick - paced
routines straight from the black
experience, complemented by
gospelly, gravelly harmonizing,
and bunches of instrumental
backup. Tina and her partners
emitted earthy sensuality, while

doing their rhythmic twitching
and shimmying.
Grimacing and groaning Tina
got down. Almost every male
was mesmerized by her sugges-
tive movements, as she sang
"Son of a Preacher Man," and
some cuts from their latest al-
bum, 'Nuff Said.
And while the Ikettes and Tina
did their frenzied thing, Ike re-
mained a profile of coolness in
his silver belted purple midi
length jumpsuit.
When they did one of their big-
gest hits, "Proud Mary," first
smooth then rowdy, the audience
became almost as frantic as the
dancers, who left little to any
male's imagination.
But Ike, too, got a chance to
show out as the pace switched
from rock and roll to back home
blues.
While the star crooned on "I
Smell Trouble," a dialogue de-
veloped between the head song-
tress and her man. With his gui-
tar whining and clicking, he
mocked his woman, mimicing her
every tone, including her laugh,
as she slid over next to her dude.
Suggestive routines and playful

comments illustrated the hus-
band-wife partnership as they
sang together and to each other.
During the show Tina told Ike
"You've got my nose wide open,"
an expression meaning I'm truly
diggin' you.
Despite some missing elec-
tricity, Tina had the audience's
nose from the time she strutted
on until she danced off in a
flickering strobelight.

Capturing an ancient
spirit of, multi-media

Hear a Tape of
a Live Interview
with Godard

By DIANE TREW
The spirit of Greek drama still
lives. The Chorica Dance The-
ater of Athens proved this con-
clusively last night at the Power
Center with a program based on
excerpts from. the works of
Aeschylus, Euripides, and'Aris-
tophanes. As pure dancing the
program is not satisfying. There
are a few nice moments, but the
dancing is far too static, and
good ideas are not developed to
the fullest.
The company does insist that
it intends to present a blend of
speech, music, and dance. This
is an ambitious undertaking, but
proved to be only partially suc-
cessful. The choreography was
well coordinated with the music
and singing, and as the evening
proceeded, the amount of danc-
ing increased.
Four of the works dealt with
the legends concerning the House
of Atreus: Cassandra's prophe-
cies of the curse, Electra's pray-
er for revenge of her father's
murder, Orestes'revenge and
flight from the Furies, and the
pursuit of the Furies.
In the first of these, the chorus
was used most effectively. Garb-
ed in extremely stylized masks
and wigs, the chorus vividly
brought to mind the faces of
early Greek sculpture. Little
dancing occurred, but one could
sense the oppressive feeling of
evil, and something was con-
veyed of the tragic, inexorable
nature of fate present in Greek
drama.
In Choephoroe by Aeschylus
a simple, very pleasing dance
of singing slave women offering
libations to the gods. was pre-
sented. The lilting music here
and throughout the program was
a curious, yet fitting blend of
modern music and the kind of
Greek folk music that one asso-
ciates with Zorba. This music
helped to create the impression
of dancing girls who appear to
have just stepped off a frieze.
Perhaps the finest moment in
the evening came in the third
work as Zouzou Nicoloudi, the
director, here portraying Elec-
tra, expressed her anguish. Coun-
terpointing this in the back-
ground were Clytemnestra and
her lover Aegisthus who danced
absorbed in each other, oblivious
of Electra.
In the choruses from Euri-
pides' The Bacchae, the singing
combined perfectly with the
dancing as the worshippers of
Dionysus writhed in, ecstasy.
They built to a sudden fury;
then it was over too soon-the
quality ofathe dancers was un-
even, and one of the dancers
dressed in red caught all the at-
tention.
The final dance from Aris-
tophanes' The Birds was not as
heavy as some of the previous
works. What the men did was
not difficult. but the choreog-
raphy was well suited to the
music, the dancers were well re-

hearsed, and the bird costumes
were fascinating, so the audi-
ence found it extremely pleasing.
The concept behind Chorica
Dance Theater is an excellent
one-to present modern works
weaving together music,
ancient drama, singing, and
dance. The company makes a
good attempt at this, yet except
in a few cases fails to carry to
the fullest this most ambitious
undertaking.

NATURAL SCIENCE AUDITORIUM
Orson Welles Film Society
"An 'adult' film without violence, viciousness or
gratuitous sex. A film with a witty, literate and be-
lievable screenplay, superb performances and subtle
direction. And glory of glories, a film that treats
women as part of the human race, as people who
can be equally as forceful and interesting as men'
without being rendered grotesque. Glenda Jackson,
who is surely one of the best actresses alive, is extra-
ordinary in her role, bringing to-it the complexity of
an intelligent, sensitive, self-knowledgeable woman
who is in control of her own life, even to the point
of allowing someone who isn't half what she is to
hurt her. Peter Finch gives a beautiful performance
as the homosexual doctor, bringing to it the dignity
and depth that the role deserves."
