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.)
Is fashion your passion? Can you figure out what sort of theatrical production people are putting on just from the costumes they’re requesting? Do you like puppets? The Costume Shop has the perfect gig for you:
The Wesleyan Costume Shop is hiring!Do you love to sew? Do you need a job? Then apply to work at Wesleyan’s costume shop!Student employees will work to create costumes for theater and dance department productions. This will not only include sewing, but also other types of crafting – this year we have dyed fabric, made masks and puppets, and refurbished antique Javanese hats. Each worker also spends a portion of their weekly hours working in the costume collection. Responsibilities in the collection include checking out costumes to customers, sending costumes out for dry cleaning, and keeping track of student charges.
Although a mention of Skull and Serpent Society doesn’t usually summon an aura of humor, the society would like to offer this semi-comedic glimpse inside the tomb as they share their very own Harlem Shake video with the Wesleyan community. The slight shakiness of the hand-held cam at the beginning might seem slightly contrarian, but it really only adds to the shake of the video, and also gives it a nice Blair Witch Project feel.
Since the video doesn’t permit embeds, you can watch it here.
