Even before 'Elektra' begins, you are meant to confront grief in unexpected, disturbing ways. Before you can find your seat, the Greek chorus, dressed as steampunk maids resembling characters from the video game “Bioshock,” demand that you cut off a lock of your hair to dedicate to the late King Agamemnon. The alternative is to write a message on a sticky note, which I think is what most people ended up doing.
This past weekend, the only student-run ballet companies in the Ivy League —Princeton University Ballet, Harvard Ballet Company and Columbia Ballet Collaborative —joined forces to produce performances that both showcased and celebrated the strengths of the dance groups.

The connection between an author and translator is an unusual one; both seek to tell the same story through different languages. That relationship is explored in Idra Novey's debut novel, "Ways to Disappear," which takes place in both the United States and Brazil, concerning the travels of an American translator attempting to find the author she translates, who has gone missing. Novey, a lecturer in Creative Writing at the Lewis Center for the Arts, is also an accomplished poet, having published the award-winning collections "Exit, Civilian" and "The Next Country." "Ways to Disappear" was published Feb. 9 and has garnered rave reviews from NPR, BBC and Buzzfeed. In this Q&A, Senior Writer Victoria Scott asked Professor Novey about her novel and her creative writing process through an email interview.

“No pain, no thoughts.” Ensemble members echo this haunting line in Princeton Shakespeare Company’s recent production of Heiner Müller’s “Hamletmachine.” A post-modern, one-act play basedroughly on Shakespeare’s tragedy, “Hamletmachine” was written in 1977 Soviet-ruled East Berlin. The script is a mere eight pages long, giving the creative team the freedom to creatively expand on Müller’s written text. And yet, while the script’s brevity enables the production to take some liberties, we see that the text itself demands to be understood, both within its original political context and as a piece of timeless and stateless theater.
This week, Street considers the history of bicker, the process of admitting new members at selective eating clubs. A glance back at the ‘Prince’ archives reveals bicker’s fascinating and often controversial history. Evolving from a five-week process to the weeklong, co-ed system present today, bicker has seen high and low points over the past century.
Princeton University Concerts may be soon approaching its 125th anniversary, but its new concert series nicknamed “PUC125” is all about trying something innovative and experimental that breaks away from the traditional classical concert format. PUC is short for Performances Up Close, as the series presents an opportunity for the audience to sit on the stage with the performers.
“The vagina becomes a site for women’s empowerment and individuality among women,” Olivia Robbins ’16 said, in reference to the play she is co-directing with Azza Cohen ’16, Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues.”
We thought winter would never come. But then it did. This Intersession, winter came with a vengeance — and serendipitously, there was not a snow day in sight.
