The Dairy Center for the Arts is hosting a wonderful line-up of documentary, exhibits, and storytelling.
This week (May 6-9) The Boedecker Theater screens Dior and I, a documentary that brings you inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ first haute couture collection as its new artistic director—a true labor of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators. Melding the everyday, pressure-filled components of fashion with mysterious echoes from the iconic brand’s past, the film is also a colorful homage to the seamstresses who serve Simons’ vision.

May 7 through May 17, Boulder Ensemble Theater Company presents Hysteria. Sigmund Freud is dying. But before he does, there are visitors to be met, and reckonings to be made. A life-long friend insists upon a rewrite. A mysterious girl turns up in his study, demanding time on his couch. And once Salvador Dali himself arrives, the stage is set for a splendidly silly exploration of the subconscious that makes for “audacious and dazzlingly clever farce” (Financial Times, London).This show is appropriate for mature audiences.
Tickets available here.

This Saturday, May 9 at 4:00pm and 7:00pm Listen To Your Mother is featured at The Dairy.
Join us for stories of the beauty, the beast, and the barely rested that is motherhood. Whether you have a mother, are a mother, or know a mother, this show is for you. Featuring local bloggers and writers reading their own words about motherhood, the Listen To Your Mother Show was born of the creative work of mothers who publish online. Since its inception in 2010, it has become a national storytelling movement, as cities across the U.S. give Mother’s Day a microphone. Each show is produced, directed, and performed by local communities, for local communities. 10% of the proceeds from this show will benefit the Emergency Family Assistance Association, a local non-profit helping neighbors in need through food donations and more.
