Superstar: Chevy Kozisek

The art of tattoo has always fascinated Sioban Kozisek (“Chevy”). She got her first tattoo when she was attending boarding school in Ireland. “I was 16-years-old and I had a fake ID to say I was 18,” Kozisek recalls. “I found some little dive shop above a pub in Cork City and decided to get a yin yang on my shoulder. This massive bearded man with a Celtic design on his chest had me sit backwards on a broken chair...

Proprietors Jennifer Fulcher and Jessica Chizek offer some much needed advice to today’s women of Omaha: “Take time for yourself and just chill.

That’s a tip these ladies mean literally. Jennifer and Jessica opened the new pedicure and manicure spa “Chill Body” in February of 2013 in Omaha’s Rockbrook Village. The idea is to provide women an escape from their busy lives in a beautiful environment that promotes...

Nik Fackler’s new film explores a paradise lost

Filmmaker, musician and psychedelia aficionado Nik Fackler is a millennial seeker. It's no surprise then he followed his well-crafted made-in-Omaha feature debut Lovely, Still (2008) with documentaries exploring cultures half-a-world away.

One doc brought him to Nepal to capture the phenomenon of a boy buddha returned from remote self-exile back into civilization. That untitled film is as yet unfinished. The...

Art imitates life as themes in play cut closely for its stars

Art imitates life when siblings Camille Metoyer Moten and Lanette Metoyer Moore evoke the Delany sisters in the African-American oral-history show Having Our Say at the Omaha Community Playhouse.

Just as the play's real-life Sadie and Bessie Delany followed their family's barrier-breaking path the Metoyers hail from high achievers and activists. The black branch of the Delanys' mixed race Southern lineage...

Sister Sister

A friend stops by the table where Camille Metoyer Moten sits with her sister, Lanette Metoyer Moore, and compliments Camille’s deep purple fingernails.

“Those nails have to come off,” Camille says, days before their two-woman play, Having Our Say, opened Jan. 17 at the Omaha Community Playhouse.  “Bessie can’t have glamour nails.”

Lanette plays Sadie and Camille is Bessie, two black sisters who lived more than...

Black on Black

Comedian Lewis Black has made a living off of being extremely angry, irritated and voluble, to say the least. Considering his on-stage persona, it’s incredible how congenial of a man Black actually is.
From his work on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” to his stand-up routines like The Rant is Due, Black has perfected his craft over the last few decades.

Black called from his New York City home to talk about...
