Food and eating are more than just basic sustenance; in many countries they are the cornerstones of culture — the occasion to eat is a celebration in itself. This can be seen around the world where pubs, restaurants, Kneipen, and other food establishments can flourish not only based on their cook’s ability, but also on the atmosphere they can foster among their patrons.
“Well you can tell by the way I use my walk, I’m a woman’s man: no time to talk.” With these classic words from the Bee Jees’ “Stayin’ Alive,” Saturday Night Fever, a musical based on the 1977 film of the same name, introduces Tony Manero to the audience.
Seniors have been busy recently for one main reason: senior thesis work. To get an idea of what these students have been spending hours and hours on, the Street interviewed three seniors, Dylan Blau Edelstein ’17, former Street editor Harrison Blackman ’17, and Daniel Teehan ’17.
Sometimes you’ll see me standing outside with my head tipped back towards the winter sky, imploring the clouds to dip close enough to brush against my face the way your words touched my soul.
Art is participatory. What artists create is an experience for people to look at artwork and imagine themselves to be part of its story. The best works of art are the most convincing in catalyzing their audience’s imagination. Moreover, the process of art-making is also more arduous than we often imagine. This week, The Daily Princetonian spoke with two student artists on campus who designed their own film projects as an extracurricular passion in hopes of unveiling the artistic ideals that motivated them and the artistic processes they underwent.
Unlike some study spaces on campus, the Rocky Common Room is never empty. At least during the regular school year, you can always find someone working late into the night or coming in early to catch the morning light through the glass windows.
Becoming an RCA at Princeton is highly competitive. The application for becoming an RCA has multiple stages, which, depending on the residential college, can include written responses to questions, one-on-one interviews with the DSL, and group interviews with senior RCAs. This week, the Street interviewed some current RCAs to find out more about what this highly sought-after position entails.
summer I was disappointed to learn that “P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way” did not
exist. I had taken a trip to travel down the east coast of Australia,
specifically to visit Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Sydney.
I used to believe that love worked in one singular, particular way; that I would meet one person and they would be the first person to ever hold my hand, my first kiss, my first date, my first time and that I would marry that one person.
A play within a play. A murder mystery within a romance within a family drama within a coming-of-age story, all within a socio-political satire about Asian Americans, and by Asian Americans.
For the members of the Jewish community, the Center for Jewish Life is much more than a place to eat.
A look at the different co-op options on Princeton's campus.
Princeton has a long history of creating structures for communities that bring together people based on specific interests, such as dance, a cappella, or visual arts.
Dear Sexpert,I am currently taking birth control because I am sexually active, and the pill has been my contraceptive of choice since I started.
are certain expectations that accompany one to a dance show. One anticipates dancers with beautiful lines,
clothed in beautiful costumes moving through the stage in ways that seem to
defy gravitational laws and human anatomy.
One expects to hear music that somehow perfectly captures the exact
quality of movement on stage. And one
awaits being swept into a different reality in which movement becomes the best
medium to convey pain, passion, love, and what it means to be human. Pilobolus
somehow simultaneously defies and exceeds these expectations. Founded in 1971 by a group of students at
Dartmouth College, Pilobolus has grown into an internationally acclaimed arts
organization, known for its interdisciplinary, experimental approach to
movement and storytelling. This past
Tuesday, I saw “Shadowland” at McCarter Theater, a collaborative evening length
show created by Pilobolus’s dancers and directors and Steven Banks, the lead
writer for SpongeBob SquarePants. The show follows a young girl’s dream, in
which she is trapped as a shadow behind her bedroom wall. Combining choreography with projected images
on multiple, moving screens, Pilobolus uses shadow theater to truly,
authentically capture the “shadowland” the girl is attempting to escape. And it was truly unlike any performance I
have ever seen in its ability to stray so far away from conventional dance
practices so as to redefine and extend the reach and power of movement. Stripped
of the tutus or dresses one might typically associate with a dance performance,
Pilobolus’s performers moved through the stage predominantly in underwear, sometimes
even shedding this extra layer to perform significant sections of choreography
in the nude. Their bodies, uncovered and
unornamented with frills or tulle, became the sole focus of the audience,
drawing attention to the images and characters the dancers could create through
the contortion of their own bodies rather than the images or characters that
could be projected onto them through clothing and props.
In Princeton, its easy to justify being too busy, too stressed or simply too tired to even consider being romantically engaged on Valentine’s Day.
A confession: I make lists of what we might fight about (don’t worry, this is not that kind of list).
This could have been a story about us. About how I felt lonely one night, so I decided to go on that app everyone uses for a good time and found you.
With gallery walls and floor spaces adorned with a vast assortment of fine paintings and statues, it is hard for any patron visiting the Princeton University Art Museum to not feel a sense of romanticism in the air.On Feb. 11, this sense was further heightened when the recurring Art for Families series dedicated their event, Art from the HeART, to telling some of the great love stories behind select museum works.
While love does not seem like the type of thing you learn from a textbook, at a lecture, or in a seminar, it has been studied in everything from history to sociology and psychology.
