diSiac Dance Company opened its spring show with dancers moving in semi-darkness to the understated beat of Jaden Smith’s “Ghost.” The production played off of the strength of simplicity, beginning with marketing that got straight to the point about how good the group really is: “drip” was this season’s theme. No other narrative or overarching topic was needed to bind together the whole production as it sped by.
I’m obsessed with spicy foods. I’ve conquered the Blazin’ Wings challenge multiple times, have devoured a raw ghost pepper, love to brag about my vast collection of hot sauces, and am an avid fan of Hot Ones, a YouTube talk show that forces celebrities to eat progressively hotter wings while answering your typical talk show questions. Whereas most bucket lists include skydiving or getaways to exotic locations, my dream is to travel to New York City’s East Village, home of the infamous “Spiciest Curry in The World” challenge.
Nostalgia (April 15–26) at Hagan Studio. The senior visual arts thesis entitled Nostalgia by Susan Liu ’19 will be on display at Hagan Studio from April 15–26. The show focuses on “nostalgia” through a historical lens. Liu uses “multiple sensory modalities” to explore this topic of nostalgia.
Hollywood blockbuster “Green Book” immediately sparked controversy following its Best Picture win at the 2019 Academy Awards. The film tracks a budding friendship between black musician Don Shirley, played by Mahershala Ali, and white Italian American driver Tony Lip, played by Viggo Mortensen. And though it is a heart-warming story good enough to win the Oscar, Don Shirley’s real-life family has levied accusations against the makers of the film, claiming that they were never consulted and that the relationship portrayed between Shirley and Lip is fictional.
If there’s something that Princeton seems to be overridden with (not including ice cream shops), it’s ramen. In the past few years, ramen shops have been sprouting up like weeds (not in a bad way — more like pretty weeds with flowers on them), making it hard to decide where to go. Group options and budget prices are always a plus while at school, so here are three options that will meet those needs and beyond!
While the weather outside may finally be changing for the better, there are still many exciting things going on in Princeton indoors. Below we’ve picked out some of the best ones you should attend.
Juggling, belly dancing, stepping, saxophone playing, and puppetry all came together at the Berlind Theatre this past weekend in a lively production of “The Odyssey” — a musical adaptation of Homer’s famous epic poem. The production, Victoria Davidjohn ’19 and Annabel Barry’s ’19 theater thesis, completed a four-show run with sold-out performances and over 40 Princeton students sharing the stage.
I’ve heard a lot about “manscaping.” What is this, and should I be doing it?
A young woman slow dances with a phantom in a haunted hotel. Two shy ghosts try futilely to scare away the living intruders in their home. A sinister love potion sends a honeymoon into disarray. Más Flow’s ¡Qué Horror! took its theme in every conceivable direction, attempting to balance steaminess, humor, and pain along the way.
Six14 Christian Dance Company: Seasons (March 28–29) at Frist Campus Center. Six14, Princeton’s premier Christian dance company, will be presenting their annual show this week. The show is inspired by Ecclesiastes 3:4, “A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance.” A variety of dance styles from contemporary to praise dance will be featured.
Nadia Vulvokav — played by the flame-haired Natasha Lyonne — is a lonely, cynical, and even sardonic video game programmer on the brink of wanting to end it all. In the opening scene, she stares at herself in the bathroom mirror as an invasive knock pounds into the ears and minds of the viewers. Nadia might hear the knock too, but her gaze, pointed directly at the camera, feels empty and distracted. Nadia is not having the time of her life at her 36th birthday party, and she wants us to know it. She lives a reckless life, taking whatever joint is offered her and sleeping with whomever might cross her path. “Staring down the barrel of mortality always beats fun,” Nadia jokes, not knowing that she will be fatally hit by a cab that same night while drunkenly searching for her cat, Oatmeal.
“I’ll do anything to have good packaging for the way that it looks on my shelf. It makes me so happy and makes my bathroom look fancier,” says freelance stylist Summer Miller in a New York Times featurette on the rise of boujee soap. She’s not alone — Miller is one of many millennials who has both grown up in the digital age and become enamored with capturing the perfect aesthetic. Pretty soap is just one facet of this obsession. As social media influencer Alexander Atkins suggests, his generation “seems to be more aesthetically driven [than previous ones].”
The interviewee requested to keep his name unknown but shared that he is a first-year and prospective COS major.
Things to Do in Princeton this Week: Senior Thesis Edition (Mar. 10–16)
As spaces on this campus go, Richardson Auditorium strikes me as possibly the most underappreciated gem our university has to offer. When donating the money to construct Alexander Hall, Harriet Crocker Alexander envisioned the space to be a “cultural temple,” with depictions of the likes of Shakespeare, Dante and Galileo surrounding the auditorium.
A man squints into the distance of an arctic tundra, his fur hat buffeted by wind. A woman fiercely pilots a helicopter. Three hikers charge through dead grass at the summit of a mountain, logos faintly visible on the upper left arms of their knits. “Our mission is to free people from the cold — no matter where they live — and empower them to experience more from life,” Canada Goose states on their Indeed page.
