Zumba instructor grooves and shakes her way to bliss in class

(05/04/16 9:01pm)

The rhythmic sounds of maracas and Colombian drums echoes throughout the studio. A petite woman with curly hair stands at the front of the room, effortlessly moving to the mix. The music transitions into an upbeat hip hop instrumental, and she starts shaking her hips, lost in the song’s deep bass. There’s no doubt. This woman can dance. “Wobble, wobble, wobble,” she yells. Zumba instructor Evelyn Thibodeau continues pumping her arms and moving with the beat as she tells her students to shake their bodies. Even if they make a mistake, Thibodeau encourages them to continue dancing and having fun.

‘Keanu’ cannot recreate the Key and Peele magic

(05/02/16 9:01pm)

Fresh off the set of their recently concluded Comedy Central show “Key and Peele,” the shape-shifting Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele make their big screen debut in “Keanu” (2016). Like many television comedians have discovered, particularly Saturday Night Live cast members, cinematic audiences are unwelcoming of stars traversing media. Fortunately, the dynamic duo’s antics translate into a feature narrative film, while maintaining the same sketch comedy style which made them household names.

(04/28/16 9:01pm)

As one of the few women of color in the College’s theater department, Carene Mekertichyan ’16 has continuously employed her talents to spur discussions on gender, race and identity using the stage.

Sequentia to cast medieval spell at world premiere tonight

(04/27/16 9:01pm)

Scholarship surrounding the secular music of Medieval monks is rare. Studying, learning and performing music from a period without written music is an intricate process that requires much historical scholarship and musical insight. For those not inclined to undertake a rigourous study of Medieval music, a firm appreciation of music and history from the Medieval Era — one of the first eras in Western classical music — is available tonight at Rollins Chapel. Sequentia, an ensemble of international singers and instrumentalists, will take the stage for the world premiere of “Monks Singing Pagans: Medieval songs of heroes, gods and strong women.”

Photography exhibit humanizes sexual assault statistics

(04/25/16 9:01pm)

One in five women will experience sexual assault during their lifetime. Despite this fact, many people still feel distanced from the idea of sexual assault. Jadyn Petterson-Rae’15 wanted to change this and help more people understand sexual assault and its prevalence in society, so she created an exhibition featuring pictures of Dartmouth women who have experienced sexual assault. The exhibit is currently being displayed in the Black Family Visual Arts Center for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Everybody should get some of ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ (2016)

(04/25/16 9:01pm)

More than 20 years after the success of “Dazed and Confused” (1993), Richard Linklater graduates from ’70s high school to ’80s college in “Everybody Wants Some!!” (2016). These two films along with “Boyhood” (2014) complete his unofficial adolescence trilogy, which showcases Linklater’s paternalistic nostalgia for decades past. Instead of sentimental photo albums, his films feel more like highlight reels, anthropological studies charting the richest rituals and mating patterns of young sub-cultures.

Arts Explores: BVAC painting studio, a nurturing space

(04/25/16 9:01pm)

Two floors up from the elegantly minimalist lobby of the Black Family Visual Arts Center, the studio art department’s painting studios promise a boldly different aesthetic. Paint of every color splatters the tables and chairs, and the students’ workspaces exhibit their unique artistic styles. A wide array of artificial flowers and fruit crowd a table toward the front of the “Painting I” area, waiting to be arranged for upcoming still-life assignments. Tall white panels create a series of alcoves, each one used by a different student from “Painting I,” “Painting II” or “Painting III” as his or her place of creative refuge for the term.

Panelists discuss digital rights in today’s online world

(04/20/16 9:01pm)

Piracy is often viewed as a victimless crime. The months film editors tediously spend editing a movie and the long hours singers invest in recording studios are neglected for the instant gratification experienced when downloading digital works right as they hit the market. Content creators can suffer from illegal downloading or file-sharing because they do not receive proper compensation for their work.

‘Son of Saul’ (2015) reconceptualizes the Holocaust in cinema

(04/18/16 9:01pm)

After seeing “Son of Saul” (2015) at the Telluride Film Festival, I witnessed director László Nemes correct renowned Holocaust film scholar Annette Insdorf, who likened his film to “Schindler’s List” (1993). To Nemes, “Schindler’s List” focused on some 3,000 survivors amongst 12 million casualties and absurdly romanticized the Holocaust. This absurd portrayal of an already absurd era normalizes and renders cloyingly palatable this horrific past. One sees the same in many of cinema’s most recognizable Holocaust titles such as “La vita è bella” (1997) and “Inglourious Basterds” (2009). While there is “Night and Fog” (1955) and of course, “Shoah” (1985), the atrocities of concentration camps precisely preclude the immediacy of the filmic image. Cinematic escapism quickly becomes entrapment and internment when one revitalizes Auschwitz on the screen. Therefore, Nemes crafts his anti-sentimental, icily confrontational debut tour-de-force to dismantle decades of misrepresentation and display Auschwitz in its infernal, chaotic form.
