V-February is Dartmouth’s month-long initiative to educate the community about issues related to gender and sexuality, including violence against females, in the month of February. Two of the main events that take place during V-Feb, Voices and Upstaging Stereotypes, are student-written performances that focus on the many complex experiences of femininity and masculinity, respectively, at Dartmouth. The Mirror sat down with a group of students to learn more about the work that goes into creating those performances. Paulina Calcaterra ’19 is the director of Voices; Breanna McHugh ’17 wrote and will perform a piece for Voices; Maanav Jalan ’19 is co-directing Upstaging Stereotypes; and Hannah Solomon ’17 and Jessica King Fredel ’17 are on the directing team for all performances, in addition to working as OPAL student coordinators.

There is a certain excitement that comes with watching a hockey team take the ice before a game. The lights in the arena are often dimmed, strobe lights are turned on, music plays upbeat tunes and the crowd rises to its feet. Teams are typically led onto the ice by their starting goalie, the last line of defense, who typically sports a set of pads with customized color patterns to represent his institution. One may also notice the goaltender’s glistening chrome cage reflecting the spotlight as the team skates around. Look a little closer, however, and you will catch a glimpse of what a goalie would refer to as the most significant piece of his gear: the mask. Yes, the mask protects the one who wears it from the damage of 90+ mile per hour slap shots, but the reason why a goaltender’s mask is so special often has nothing to do with being on the ice. A thorough analysis of a goalie mask, therefore, requires not just insight into the design itself but also familiarity with the man who wears it.

The Appalachian Trail, commonly called the A.T., is an arduous trek spanning over 2,000 miles from Georgia to Maine. As thru-hikers slowly approach their final destination, which can easily take five to seven months for those completing the entire trail, they are likely to come across unsolicited acts of kindness. Sometimes, these come in the form of a cooler left on the trail with free drinks and snacks inside. Other times, locals may set up grills and tents so thru-hikers can eat and sleep for free.

The Copenhagen-based Danish String Quartet, which has garnered popular appeal thanks to its members’ beards, hipster-esque style and line of craft beer, seems to thrive on surprising combinations. Consisting of violinists Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen and Frederik Øland, violist Asbjørn Nørgaard and cellist Fredrik Schøyen Sjölin, the quartet was appointed to the prestigious Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two programme in the 2013-2014 season, and was the recipient of the Carl Nielsen Prize in 2011, which is Denmark’s largest cultural prize. Tonight, it will perform at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, bringing its technical prowess and unique personality to Dartmouth.
