Afro-Colombian Groove with Timka

Back by popular demand! Timka returns to Shelter Theater to finish out the season with their sensuous, sell-out Afro-Colombian show.

Friday, Apr 14, at 5pm: Quest for the Lost Maya. The Maya’s soaring pyramids, monumental cities, and mythical mastery of astronomy and mathematics have spurred generations of explorers into the jungles of Central America. Quest for the Lost Maya follows American archaeologists as they find startling new evidence of a forgotten Mayan society in the Yucatan. Discussion of this lost civilization to follow.

Saturday, Apr 15, at 5pm: Lenny Bruce. The legendary, Jewish-American stand-up comedian and social critic was renowned for his free-form style of comedy that integrated satire, politics, religion, sex, and vulgarity. Said one film critic, “Dustin Hoffman teams up with the incomparable director Bob Fosse to bring us a biopic of one of the most influential and most controversial stand-up comedians of our age.”

Wednesday, Apr 19, at 5pm: Advise and Consent. Politics was always a dirty sport, even in the year 1962. Insider Allen Drury’s account of making sausage, DC-style, shows how power-brokers like Henry Fonda and Charles Laughton wheel-and-deal to get the votes. Variety Magazine calls it, “A poignant, biting expose of the American political process.” Discussion follows.

“So, where the heck is Shelter Theater?” Nearby! Our logo’s on the Qué Pasa map in the upper left-hand corner, an easy 10-minute walk from the Jardín.
