A Great Weekend

THREE-DAY PASS This month the “most promising weekend” award belongs to Dallas March 21 through 23. On Friday, stop by the sixteenth annual Dallas Video Festival, which, over the course of the weekend, will premiere playwright Octavio Solis’ Prospect Avenue, showcase a juried compilation of short films and videos by Texas artists, and present the first annual Albert Maysles Award for emerging documentary filmmaker and the Kovacs Award for television comedy innovator. On Saturday, you have a choice for your nighttime activity: You can see minimalist pioneer Steve Reich and his ensemble perform “Triple Quartet,” “Drumming-Part One,” “Nagoya Marimbas,” “Sextet,” and “Different Trains” at McFarlin Auditorium or head for the American Airlines Center, where the Western Conference-leading Dallas Mavericks will face off against the Phoenix Suns. (Find out if the Suns’ top rookie, Amare Stoudemire, lives up to the hype.) And Sunday, wrap up the weekend at the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, where “Warhol and Jackie: Artist and Icon” will show pieces that Andy Warhol created between 1963 and 1968, including the rarely seen complete set of Flash—November 22, 1963, eleven screen prints and accompanying text about the Kennedy assassination ( Jackie, 1963).
