British film critic Mark Kermode once said of “Pan’s Labyrinth” that if a film that good were to be released every 10 years, then he would happily carry on being a critic forever. That notion has guided me throughout my efforts in film criticism and has always been a reminder that I write reviews not because I wish to lambast terrible films, but because sharing my love for a truly exceptional piece of filmmaking is amongst my greatest pleasures.
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.

Mahanthappa, an accomplished alto saxophonist, will perform a selection of songs from “Bird Calls” tonight at 8 p.m. in Spaulding Auditorium.

So you’re a NARP — that is, a Non-Artistic Regular Person — but you want to get involved with artsy things. Whether it’s because you’re searching for a creative outlet for school-related stress, trying to become a more well-rounded individual or looking to post an artsy Instagram picture to woo your campus crush (a most noble cause), Dartmouth provides plenty of opportunity for you to accomplish your goal. Unfortunately, many of these great opportunities remain relatively unknown to the undergraduate student body. No fear: both NARPs and the already more artistically-inclined among us can find an outlet among the many creative options that do not necessarily require proficiency in an artistic skill offered by the Hopkins Center for the Arts.
Netflix’s new show, “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” begins with narrator Lemony Snicket, played by Patrick Warburton, warning viewers, “In this story not only is there no happy ending, there is no happy beginning and very few happy things in the middle.” Combine that with a unique opening segment that warns viewers to “look away,” and the stage is truly set. “A Series of Unfortunate Events” may try to convince you that it is nothing but dour gloom and despair, but in reality it’s pure dark-comedic gold.
Public space is an age-old concept, dating back to the agoras of ancient Greece, yet artists continue to reinterpret this concept through their pieces. Assistant professor of studio art Zenovia Toloudi explored the ability of architecture to make a space “public” in her exhibit “Speak! Listen! Act! A kaleidoscope of architectural elements for public space,” which was on display in the Strauss Gallery at the Hopkins Center for the Arts during the fall term.

The audition process can cause even the most confident and experienced performer, such as those who auditioned last week for the theater department’s production of the Tony Award-winning satirical musical “Urinetown,” to descend suddenly descend into a vortex of self-deprecating, worst-case scenario concerns: my hands are so sweaty, I’m going to damage everything I touch and get blacklisted by the Hop. I’m so nervous, I’m going to accidentally start singing the alma mater instead of my audition piece, and I won’t be able to stop until I get through the whole thing.
