The JHU Theatre Department’s Fall 2023 production was the ancient Greek comedy The Clouds by Aristophanes, with performances held Nov. 9, 11 and 12 in the Merrick Barn. Originally a massive flop for the Grecian playwright (placing third in a festival with three submissions), The Clouds has stood the test of time for its references to Socrates and The School of Athens, as well as its commentary on the baseness of sophistry, an ancient method of argumentation that favors intellectual trickery over moral principle.
Art and worship have a lot of similarities. Whether in antique halls full of echoing organs or in small residential get-togethers with songs by the hearth, there is an innate, subconscious feeling that you are where you need to be.
October has pretty much passed, and though we can assume a week of layover, with plenty of scary movie marathons and leftover candy munching, by the end of this week we’ll all probably realize it’s time to move on. Personally, I’ve always enjoyed November — we’re not quite at finals and we get a full week of break. Fall isn’t over, as well, which is something to feel good about.
On the third day of the annual Hoptoberfest, “Show Day,” eleven student groups performed, including seven a capella groups. Hoptoberfest is run by the Hopkins Student Organization for Programming (HOP).
Following Hoptoberfest, hopefully, the entertainment bug has bit campus! October has been a great month for arts and entertainment so far and continues to give us great releases each week.
After an embarrassing venture in written poetry, with such insightful lines as, “There are two types of women in this world / women who like giving head and women who I don’t like,” Adonis’ favorite rapper and Grammy Award-winning artist Aubrey Graham (aka Drake) is back in full form.
The atmosphere is getting restless as the cold air seeps in. Conversations about the “perfect fall movie” or “beverage” are emerging from the babble of physics midterm complaints and roars of students realizing Hopkins is a pretty difficult school. There’s no argument — nostalgia seems the only way out of the current mess we’ve found ourselves in.
This is the busiest week for the arts so far this semester! By far the biggest Baltimore arts event, Artscape, will be storming the streets starting Friday, and there are too many exhibits and performances to mention in a single article! We, the Editors of the Arts section of The News-Letter, urge you to attend at least one of the Artscape events. It is a crazy fun experience and will serve as a grand introduction to what the arts culture is like here in Baltimore.
It's rare for an artist to wait seven years before releasing their debut album, especially in the age of streaming and the internet. While singles are a less risky endeavor, and a whole album of music is less likely to retain your audience's attention, the consensus within the music industry is that big artists sell albums. If you hope to gain national recognition, you need to be in the studio working on LPs.
Every year the various performing arts groups at Hopkins get together to promote their work and attract new members. This past weekend was as energetic a series of shows as we have seen in some time, as the student arts groups have fully regained their momentum. A cappella groups are as refined and plentiful as ever, the dance groups continue to bring their electric energy and the theater groups have provided a spark of laughter and emotional reprieve for stressed-out students.
As the second week of the semester begins, you might feel your free time slipping away. While you may feel inclined to start focusing more on your academics before assignments get ahead of you, never neglect the arts! There’s plenty of material being released just this week that requires your attention! To save you some time, though, we’ve put together this list for you.
There are a few terms and phrases which are endlessly repeated in Hopkins small talk and have varying importance. If you’ve ever heard someone discuss how they “want to become more involved” or how they need to “find their people,” then you’ve already witnessed what I would name the “Hopkins anxiety” or more simply, “Hopkins FOMO.” Basically, everyone is constantly anxious to make new connections and further their career. Just another part of the ambition that Hopkins requires.
If one thing is certain when it comes to the arts community at Hopkins, it is each artist’s individual passion. Whether it’s the many theater groups, orchestras or underground coalitions of rock-loving musicians, the arts of our lady Homewood are alive and well. But is this hidden culture that courses through the student body recognized as much as it should be?
As the semester comes to a close, you might find yourself with more free time on your hands than you anticipated. In these situations, left stranded without overly intensive problem sets and an endless array of convoluted chapters to skim over, art can be a shining light or a playful tool of distraction.
This past weekend, theater group the Barnstormers presented Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater’s musical Spring Awakening, a modern classic based on the 1891 play by Frank Wedekind of the same name. The play is set in late-19th-century Germany and follows the sexual awakenings of teenage students in a strict Christian school.
After a two-hour delay caused by a thunderstorm, the men’s lacrosse Homecoming game versus the Ohio State University Buckeyes got off to a rocky start. With rain still drizzling in the field, the first face-off resulted in a moving pile of bodies, ending with an Ohio State player pulling a Blue Jay down to the turf. No foul was called.
This past week, Odell Beckham Jr. (OBJ), superstar wide receiver and former rival of the Baltimore Ravens, has found his way to a one-year deal in Charm City.
Held at the Glass Pavilion this past weekend, The Inter-Asian Cultural Expo (IACE), curated by Ryo Hasegawa, showcased both visual and performance art from Asian students across Homewood Campus, Peabody Institute and the Maryland Institute College of Art.
