IF you follow dance in Ann Arbor
at all, you've heard of her. But this
weekend, Whitley Setrakian, best
known as the choreographer for
People Dancing, goes out on a limb
in a rare performance of her solo and
Out on a Limb boasts the
premiere of "The Lesson." Setra-
kian's motivation for this piece
came from Ugene Ionesco' s play
entitled The Lesson - the story of a
teacher and his young and eager
student. Performed by Setrakian and
actor/dancer David Salowich, 'The
Lesson' is striking because of Solo-
wich's eerie yet witty dramatization
of his role; it is amusing, realistic,
and quite entertaining. Setrakian

dances with energy, crispness -and
spirit. It would be a shame to miss
this wonderful piece.
Other pieces are "Baby," per-
formed to the music of George
Thorogood; "Annapurna," an avant
garde solo; "Crazy Emilia," Setra-
kian's homage to Jose Limon's
classic work "The Moor's Pavane;"
"Baby II," a new addition to the
repetoire; and "Quark" - a New Age
version of the Adam and Eve story

Most of the bands I know in Detroit
either have someone in the band that

Lately Grimshaw has been quite
busy. ArtRock, a local company
specializing in buying and selling
rock artworks of various kinds, has
printed two 20th Anniversary posters
commemorating shows by the Doors
and Jimi Hendrix, as well as
reprinting the1980 Iggy Pop poster.
His newest work is the poster for
Monday's Living Colour/Soul Asy-
lum show. Perhaps the new work he
is most proud of is the album cover
he did for the Igster's new LP,
Instinct. Album covers are some-

blems of Japanese middle class families. But Ozu distinguishes him-
self by successfully using his specific culture as being representative
of all people.
"One key to understanding Ozu's films, like all great dramas, is to
follow the subtext. The action of Ozu's characters is very deliberate,
and most of the aesthetic appeal of Ozu's films emerges from the
mental exercise the viewer has in following the characters exploits in
conjunction with the other cinematic elements," says Louis Goldberg,
who selected the films for this restrospective.
Ozu uses few technical devices in his pictures, thus causing the
ones that he does employ to be more effective. Many scenes are shot
from a low angle, about three feet above the ground, as if from the
view of an adult in the traditional crouching position. Also, for this
reason, ceilings had to be constructed on the sets, which Ozu did before
Welles did such in Citizen Kane (although the latter is usually
attributed with being the first to do so).
Robert Danly, director of the Center for Japanese Studies, has been
highly supportive of bringing Japanese films to campus. The Ozu fest
is the largest undertaking to date and at a great expense to the Center.
But not many of these films ever reach campus, and just as rare is the
opportunity to concentrate so intensely on a single director.
THE OZU FILM FEST begins tonight at 7 p.m. at Lorch Hall.
