The dancers played a group of birds, soaring through valleys, desperately trying to find a mythical creature named Simurgh. The performance was organized into ten different segments, divided by the different valleys visited along the journey. The story concludes with the birds realizing that they were ...

Radio Roundup

If I could pick one word to describe Caroline's first debut project “Strawberry,” it would be “floating.” On “Strawberry,” Loveglow takes the soft sounds from the dream pop genre and gives it a gentle punch with distortion and reverb in her production and vocals.

Reel Critic: Drive My Car

The Hirschfield International Film Series’ most recent feature “Drive My Car” is not unlike a long road trip. Road trips usually elicit two seemingly conflicting feelings: boredom and awe. With a runtime just shy of three hours, director Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s lauded masterpiece could easily miss ...

Headlines: Our new radio show

An Interview with Midd’s littlest student

Maybe you have no idea who or what Little Man is, or maybe you just want to learn more about him, but either way, read on for a personal interview with the figurine of the moment and a look behind the curtains at his creators.


Direct Your Attention: Euphoria’s conspicuous unrealism

“Euphoria” is a difficult show to watch. 17 year-old girls overdose on heroin. Parents assault their children and sexually assault their children’s underage friends. Families are dysfunctional at best and downright dangerous at worst. But for all its drugs, violence, trauma and emotional torture, ...

Nobuntu: Singing, Dancing and Healing

Nobuntu could have been enjoying the frequent sun and 80 degree days that usually mark this time of year at home; instead, they chose to travel up to Vermont’s winter bite to perform for the Middlebury community on Feb. 18.
