Film Series: The Night of the Hunter

1955. USA. Dir: Charles Laughton. With Robert Mitchum, Lillian Gish. 92 min.

Would you trust a preacher with “LOVE” and “HATE” tattooed on his knuckles? In pursuit of hidden loot, Mitchum’s charming killer priest woos a small-town widow and menaces her children. Expressionistic cinematography and haunting lullaby music describe a twisted fairytale of Grimm proportions.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free

The Fear Project Auditions!

the fear projectFrom Second Stage:

This semester, we will be devising a piece of theater that explores what fear is. The production will be an exploration of the concept, emotion, and phenomenon of FEAR– and how it varies in different ages, genders, sexualities, classes, etc. We will be telling stories and making theories.

We will be using documentary theatre techniques (most specifically, a variation of Moment work) to create a performance based on inspired ideas that come from interviews, books, songs, and journal entries. The design team will be actively involved in the creation/rehearsals, and the process will be deeply collaborative.

We are looking for a team of creators! Actors, dancers, thinkers, writers, painters, players, movers, inventors, curious humans… Experience is not necessary! Nor is it necessary for you to consider yourself a typical performer! We want a diverse ensemble filled with people who are passionate about exploring and using their bodies and minds as mediums.

Giorgia Sage ’18 writes in:

Come kick off the start of the slam season with a noncompetitive
poetry event hosted by Wesleyan’s slam poetry community, WeSLAM!
Showcasing a variety of performers from all over campus, this reading
will serve as a space to welcome back poets who are already familiar
with WeSLAM’s work, and to introduce others (especially frosh) to what
we do as a group, and what we are trying to do in the future! However,
please note that this is a minuscule sampling of the range of voices,
styles, and identities present in the slam and non-slam poetry
communities of Wesleyan.

Date: Saturday, September 12th
Time: 7:00-9:00 PM
Place: WestCo Cafe
