In this era of sequels, reboots and remakes, who would have thought that “Trainspotting” would get a second chance to shine. To be sure, the original is a cult classic and generally considered one of the greatest British films ever made, but it has a fairly self-contained story that doesn’t invite further continuation. Yet through some miracle that I will not pretend to understand, director Danny Boyle and screenwriter John Hodge have managed to return over 20 years later to make a sequel that happens to be one of the best films I’ve seen so far this year.
Boston Calling 2017’s headliners included Chance the Rapper and Mumford & Sons.
Chance the Rapper performed songs from his Grammy Award-winning album "Coloring Book."
This Friday and Saturday, the Dartmouth Dance Ensemble will showcase the choreography that it has been rehearsing all year in its spring performance, “Steps and Sounds.” While the ensemble offered a sneak preview of this weekend’s show in its winter works-in-progress performance, this weekend will be the first time that the public can view the culmination of a year of choreography and rehearsals.
Screenwriter and novelist Kamran Pasha ’93 Tu’00 majored in religion at Dartmouth before working as a financial journalist on Wall Street, attending Cornell Law School and graduating from Tuck School of Business. After briefly working as an attorney, Pasha moved to Los Angeles in 2007 to pursue a career in screenwriting. Since then, he has worked as a screenwriter and producer on Showtime’s “Sleeper Cell” and NBC’s “Kings” and “Bionic Woman.” He has also published two novels, “Shadow of the Swords: An Epic Novel of the Crusades” and “Mother of the Believers: A Novel of the Birth of Islam.”
While the performance aspect is often regaled as the climax and culmination of a dancer’s hard work, choreographer and dancer Angie Lee ’17 has a different perspective. Lee emphasizes that dance can be used to examine and explore oneself and that work takes place largely off-stage.
Every year, graduating seniors studying with a professor in the music department have the option to perform a senior recital. These students are not necessarily music majors or minors, but they have all undertaken advanced study on their instrument or voice.
Diane, 11:30 a.m., May 21. In a few hours “Twin Peaks” will debut a third season after a 25-year absence, now as “Twin Peaks: The Return.” It would be an understatement to say that I am tense with anticipation.
Honestly, I should have known how much I would dislike “Table 19” just by looking at its film poster, which is designed to look like an Instagram post. And, like most people who are internally 80 years old and gigantic curmudgeons, I have never once in my life used Instagram, nor do I ever plan to. Simply stated, “Table 19” is made for a crowd of which I am not a member. While I will try to keep that in mind for this review, I’d also counterargue that art shouldn’t just resonate with a very limited intended audience.
This past Saturday and Sunday, Dartmouth’s 45th annual Powwow took place in Leede Arena. Despite the rainy weather and resulting move from the Green, the event was successful in celebrating Native American culture and excellence, promoting inclusivity and diversity and honoring veterans and Joshua Monette ’19, a native student who recently passed away.
The world-renowned production company New York Theater Workshop commemorated its quarter-century-long relationship with Dartmouth College at its annual spring gala last night at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. The ceremony was co-hosted by Rachel Dratch ’88 and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Tomorrow, Hanover’s Skinny Pancake will host The Gaslight Tinkers, a popular world music group.

For the past 40 years, Don Glasgo and Barbary Coast Jazz Ensemble have been practically synonymous. Glasgo has been the director of Barbary Coast since the mid-1970s; prior to his directorship, Barbary Coast was a small, student-run jazz ensemble. This Saturday’s concert, though, marks the end of an era, as it will be Glasgo’s final concert with the ensemble. In honor of Glasgo’s impending retirement, the second half of tomorrow night’s show will feature Barbary Coast alumni, including some ’78s and ’79s from Glasgo’s first years with the ensemble, sharing the stage with its current members.
Students worried that the weekend after Green Key is sure to be disappointing may want to consider traveling down to Harvard University to get another outdoor music fix. Starting this year, the music festival Boston Calling will take place at the Harvard Athletic Complex, a move that is the result of increasing interest in the festival. The new location, though, is not the only change in this year’s Boston Calling, which has also expanded to include comedy acts, a film component and a visual art component.
Nestled in between the parties hosted on Webster Avenue and the first-year family activities hosted by the College, the Dartmouth Rude Mechanicals performed an abridged conception of “Richard III” to an audience comprised of students and curious visiting parents in House Center B.
