Cultural highlights this month
My Children! My Africa!
Black Box Theatre, UNLV
The choice between education and violence sits at the heart of this Athol Fugard drama about South African apartheid, as a “humble and humane” black teacher tries to convince a student to make the right decision. Through Sept. 28, $13.50-$15, unlv.edu/calendar
Three Minutes Series
City Hall Chamber Gallery
The photo above: The scene is recognizable but somehow other, too, and weirdly graceful. Credit the process described by the exhibit title: Seder Burns’ camera takes three minutes to record each shot, moving left to right in small slices of time. Burns: “The camera is a 1950s 8-by-10-inch camera with a homemade digital back of my own design. I have to haul that around, plus a laptop to control it. Very conspicuous.” Free, artslasvegas.org
Corinne Entratter Sidney
Clark County Library
No surprise they’re calling this talk “The Glamorous Life of Corinne Entratter Sidney” — given her life in the public eye (actress, Playmate), the legendary husbands (iconic Sands boss Jack Entratter; film director George Sidney), even her brush with crime (kidnapped and rescued in 1975), glamour is the word for it. 7p, free, lvccld.org
Sufi Qawwali Party
Winchester Cultural Center
More specifically, the Fanna-Fi-Allah Sufi Qawwali Party: an ensemble (playing harmoniums, temporas, tablas) performing the music of Pakistan’s Sufis. Could be your new global jam. 7p, $10-$12, 702-455-7340
There’s no better reason to visit this refurbished downtown venue than to watch the former Hüsker Dü frontman sing his heart, lungs and larynx out, accompanied by gales of deeply felt guitar. 8p, $15-$20, bunkhousedowntown.com
