As promised, the three other new Hop interns share their recommendations for what NOT to miss this fall! To see what the other four interns recommend go here!
Jennie Evans ’17, Audience Engagement intern and English major, recommends the following:
La La Land (September 17): I saw this film musical in Los Angeles this January, and it blew me away with not only beautiful music and set design but a wonderful plot that captured the beauty and sadness of Hollywood. I’m very excited to watch it again as part of Telluride at Dartmouth, a great experience overall.
Motherstruck! (September 21): This solo performance by Staceyann Chin speaks truthfully about a journey of motherhood and self-understanding, and I think Chin’s powerful poetry will resonate with and enrapture me.
Bandaloop (September 16): I couldn’t resist such a unique dance performance at the Hop, as Bandaloop really defies gravity in their spectacular routines. I can’t imagine missing this one.
FLEXN (September 14 & 15): I love that dance can be used to create a social message or tell a story, as well as the intricacy and power needed in difficult dance routines, and I’m excited for the atmosphere that FLEXN will create in their performance.
Ghostbusters (September 24): My love of the four main actors in this revisioned ’80s classic has drawn me to it, and I’m excited to see the way it flips stereotypes and provides such strong female leads.
Adam Couitt ’18, Donald Claflin Jewelry Studio intern, a pre-med biology major, is excited about:
Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra (November 5): This should be an exciting event, as the DSO appears to have received very good reviews.
Arrival (September 16): The concept of the movie seems very interesting; it seems to be worth the time for anyone interested in sci-fi themed movies.
Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble (November 11): As a performance by the college’s own wind ensemble, this seems like a perfect event to explore another facet of campus life and to provide support for students.
Bandaloop (September 16): The premise of the performance sounds quite exciting and the setting for the performance itself is also quite unique.
Star Trek Beyond (October 7): To anyone who has followed any of the television series or the last, most recent movie, this would be a must-see screening.
Naomi Lazar ’17, Hop Operations intern, looks forward to:
Bandaloop (September 16): I love displaced theater, and this performance is an amazing example of using unconventional spaces to create impressive art.
Motherstruck! (September 21): Solo performances are a wonderful breed of theater: the audience gets what feels like a personal connection with the artist, and the artist has a challenging opportunity to be an entire cast and keep a show captivating.
The Capitol Steps (October 27): This election year has been particularly polarizing and worrisome, but I believe that humor can help bridge gaps and get people to see their perspectives in new lights.
Intimate Apparel (November 4-13): This production is such an important piece to be doing at Dartmouth. I am so excited to see my fellow students perform this play.
Handel Society of Dartmouth College (Nov 15): I love Handel Society performances. I always find it so amazing how many talented artists we have in our community.
