I love him very much.

Private lessons teacher Stan Scott will be joined by a group of extraordinary musicians in a program of driving reels, lilting jigs, stately waltzes, and old and new songs of emigrants, soldiers, mystics, lovers, and laborers. Mr. Scott’s songs and instrumental compositions for guitar, mandolin, and banjo draw on rhythmic and melodic ideas he has gathered in four decades of travel and study in Europe, America, and South Asia.

ESQUE WAAANTS YOU

esque fuck the whatFrom Lauren Burke ’16, otherwise known as Lizard The Wizard:

ESQUE :: wtf is it???
Honestly, we don’t know. But we’re doing a show and we need YOU.

Last Spring, ESQUE took the form of a queer(ed) burlESQUE about desire and difference. This April, we’re doing it all again!

As a show/group/organization ESQUE is all about creating space on this campus for marginalized voices. We’re open to work in any form–poetry, visual art displays, performance art of all kinds, singing, dancing, short film, making strange noises on stage, head-shaving, sex ed demos and more! This is an explicitly political space for work you might not see room for anywhere else.

Want in as a performer or artist or production person!?! Fill out The Big ESQUE Form (link below!!!) by February 26th. Tell us what you want to do and we’ll help you make it happen.

Questions? Email Rémy Hatfield-Gardner (rhatfieldgar[at]wesleyan[dot]edu), José Luis Sánchez (jlsanchez[at]wesleyan[dot]edu), or Sarah
Lurie (slurie[at]wesleyan[dot]edu)!
