Women have a representation problem in film. There simply aren’t enough women in movies, and when they are, the characters seem to be hideous caricatures of what two middle-aged white guys think women act like. As someone who loves movies, this saddens me. As much as I love watching men struggle through conflict in movies, I like seeing films with women front and center because it’s a nice change of pace. Women deserve better representation in the media, and as of late, there have been several television shows and movies working to promote that trend.
“All the world’s a stage,” Luke Katler ’15, artistic director of the Dartmouth Rude Mechanicals, quipped during the group’s opening performance of “As You Like It” on Friday evening.

As the opening notes of Bennie Moten’s Kansas City Orchestra’s “Moten Swing” sounded on Thursday evening last week, conductor Don Glasgo was at ease. Only a close observer could notice the slight motions of his wrist keeping tempo — a contrast to the stereotypical conductor armed with a baton, elaborately motioning through the rhythms. Through the opening passage, guitarist Zack Cutler ’14 anchored the chord progression with a walking bass line provided by Andrew Shea ’17. Floating on top, pianist Becky Zegans offered variation. Suddenly, there was a blitz of brass which stopped as quickly as it started.

The Hopkins Center and the Hood Museum have much in common. Physically, the two buildings share a connecting hallway, while abstractly, they share the goal of promoting education in the arts on campus. Both also would not exist if not for two large founding gifts, and gift giving remains a significant source of funds for both the Hop and Hood.
From transforming long, cardboard carpet tubes and plastic straw into a flute to converting old tennis rackets and fire alarms into percussion instruments, Bash the Trash takes an artistic approach to sustainability, co-founder John Bertles said.

Displayed in the shape of a rising sun on the wall, the African weapons in the new Hood Museum of Art exhibit, “Art of Weapons,” form intimidating yet beautiful rays.

Though they often tuck themselves away inside the Hopkins Center’s basement recital hall and practice spaces, about 10 to 20 students major in music each year.

Before he was known for playing wizened, old British men, Michael Caine got his start playing young and fiery gangster characters in British films. Armed with a Cockney accent, Caine often played lovable rogues who tried to navigate London’s seedy underbelly.
