Purim Masquerade

From Talia Baurer ’15:

Ever wondered what it looks like when a Jewish holiday is dedicated to dressing up in costume and behaving like fools? This (belated) Purim, come to the Bayit to celebrate the facts that a) Jews still exist, b) we have a house, c) masks are fun, and d) MASKS ARE REALLY SUPER FUN GUYS. The Bayit is about to throw a party just like Bubbe used to make… except not at all like Bubbe used to make, unless you have a really cool bubbe. Optional but encouraged: wear costumes, or at least masks! Masks will be provided.

Date: Saturday, March 29
Time: 10 PM – 1:30 AM
Place: The Bayit (157 Church St.)

Milk & Choreo Presents: Kenichi Kasamatsu


Thanks to the fabulously badass Jillian Roberts ’15 for this one:

Only recently did Kenichi, or Ken, take the leap forward coming to the US in order to share his craft and learn more on this path, and in just a short amount of time has gotten him opportunities to be a featured dancer in various live stages as well as assisting positions for choreographers such as Gigi Torres and Neil Schwartz, and most recently was a guest judge for PUSO’s SAYAW 2014 at Stony Brook University. Some may also recall that he was at the mL tour D.C. Season 2 and 3 winning awards both times. Ken’s style is unique to be sure and the best word to describe such would be “subtle” yet filled with details, close to what a lot refer to now as Urban. We would like to leave you with a sentence that Ken will be sure to get you saying, “Everyone has the freedom to live, and I live for the freedom to dance”.

Date: Saturday, March 29th
Time: Beginner class at 1pm; Intermediate class (Kenichi) at 2:15pm
Place: Fayerweather Dance Studio
Cost: FREE for Wesleyan Students, $5 for Non-Wesleyan Students.

Film Series: Inside Llewyn Davis

2013. USA. Dir: Joel & Ethan Coen. With Oscar Isaac. 104 min.

In a melancholy odyssey worthy of its own legend, a struggling folksinger wanders 1960s Greenwich Village in search of a couch to sleep on, a shot at solo musical success, and an orange housecat. Isaac’s prodigious musical and dramatic talents imbue the title character with a sensitive artistry that offsets his outward asshole-ness.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
