Senior Thesis Production: “Weehawken”
By ZOE PEROT Staff Writer
eXpressions’ upcoming spring show, “Evolve,” seems appropriately named considering the group’s evolution since its founding in 1979. eXpressions was Princeton’s first student-run dance company and tended to favor jazz back in the 1980s. Few realize that eXpressions is only a de facto all-female company. There is no clause in the company’s charter that states it will refuse male auditionees, and understandably so, considering the group was originally co-ed. However in recent years, the company has earned a campus reputation as the all-female lyrical dance company filled with girls looking to continue their competition days. Publicity chair Silvia Lundgren ’15, confessed to initially having a negative image of the company as one of the less serious dance groups.

Under the artistic direction of Lili Driggs ’14, Raks Odalisque’s “Arabian Nights” packs a lot of different pieces into a show with a run time well under two hours. Beyond the vibrant costumes and impressive sword and pot-balancing tricks, “Arabian Nights” offers more creative and conceptual pieces that help diversify the program. While some of these artistic endeavors are better executed than others, you can expect an entertaining show supported by comical fillers — all you bros out there, make sure to practice your body rolls and hip isolations before the show — and committed dancers.
Theater: Student Playwrights Festival
Not all of them are angry, and not all of them are men, but the characters in Princeton Chinese Theatre’s production, “12 Angry Men” must overcome their differences to reach a unanimous decision that will determine whether another person will live or die. This play, directed by Bobby Chengming Zhu ’13, is a translation into Mandarin Chinese of the famous film “12 Angry Men,” which was released in 1957. In this play, a 18-year-old boy has been tried for allegedly murdering his father, and a guilty verdict carries a mandatory death sentence. The plot revolves around the discussions among the jurors as they debate the reliability of witnesses and evidence and as they explore their own prejudices.
Thoreau had walden. Renoir and Matisse had Saint-Paul-de-Vence. Hemingway had Cuba. Across time and generations, artists have been captivated and inspired by spaces. Their inspiration often stems from the environment around them: the people, culture and other artists pursuing their creative ambitions. Next year, a group of Princeton students will join this pursuit as a part of the Edwards Collective. The Mathey Arts and Humanities Residence is bringing together 20 students to live on the third floor of Edwards Hall and create an atmosphere that facilitates creative expression and artistic collaboration.
We met long before my introduction to the Bubble, in my junior year of high school. He was a football player; I was a cheerleader and it was cute, cliched and comfortable. Our relationship started out of mutual attraction and then blossomed into something real. He didn’t understand my interest in schoolwork, just as I didn’t understand his obsession with sports, but despite our not having much in common, we were happy together for a year and a half, even when he was in college one state away.

Comedy: Quipfire! Spring Shows (feat. an improvised musical)
“The Baltimore Waltz” opened last night at Theatre Intime. It tells the story of Anna and Carl, a brother and sister, embarking on one final trip to Europe as a terrible disease threatens to separate the two forever. Playwright Paula Vogel wrote it as a memorial to her brother, Carl, who died of an AIDS-related illness; it is a fantasy of the overseas adventure she was never able to have with him.
Recently, facebook newsfeeds have been flooded with photographs of students staring into a camera, their eyes vulnerable and their insecurities written on their bodies. The students pictured had all walked into the USG office this past week and shared their stories with photographer Steve Rosenfield, opening up about feelings that they hadn’t revealed to the public before. Though Rosenfield was a stranger, his comforting presence allowed them to release the issues that had been on their minds. “Steve made me feel so relaxed because he was totally nonjudgmental. We talked about how my anxiety affects me and the thoughts I have in my head when I feel an anxiety attack coming on,” said Latalia White ’13, who was photographed with the words “Don’t Freeze” written on her arm.
Let’s be honest. Princeton’s your second home, yet when your classmates at UCs gush about the beaches or your NYU friends send you sketchy Snapchats of the Sprouse twins, you can’t help but get a little annoyed at the apparent dearth of prospects in New Jersey.
Every february, there comes a time when we become acutely aware of the status of our relationships with others. We think about the moments we’ve shared, the jokes we’ve told, the quarrels we’ve fought, and we reach a pivotal moment when we must decide whether or not we want to take the next step or move on to a new chapter of our lives. I refer, of course, to the time of room draw sign-ups. As we draw closer and closer to the all-important deadline, all of the unspoken questions of the last months must be answered. Awkward conversations ensue that make the stammering confessions of Valentine’s Day look like idle chatter about the weather. Of these uncomfortable room draw situations, nothing is more painfully awkward than the roommate breakup. However, there is no need to fear: This guide will help you defuse that explosive situation with such skill that Kathryn Bigelow herself will want to make a movie about you.
