From the Viewpoint: Mosaica taught me how to love dance

I’m going to be honest—I know next to nothing about dance. It was therefore with some measure of anxiety that I attended the Mosaica Dance Company’s annual spring showcase. Of course the show would be good, of that I had very little doubt. The problem was instead how to write about something of which I… Keep Reading

Banks speaks to all the senses at Le Metropolis

It didn’t take long for listeners to latch onto Jillian Banks, better known simply by her last name: Banks. Her sound is an amalgamation of pop and R&B with a spooky techno-alternative twist; her visuals are dark and laden with metaphors; her style is sleek, seductive, and minimalist.

From the viewpoint: Ann Arbor Film Festival

As a newcomer to art house cinema, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the 53rd Ann Arbor Film Festival’s screening of 13 short films by independent filmmakers at Cinémathèque Québécois on Saturday night. It could have been the hushed atmosphere of a dimly lit room, or maybe the fact that everyone around me seemed… Keep Reading

From the viewpoint: BØRNS at Petit Campus

As I stuck out my wrist for a stamp guaranteeing entry into Petit Campus on Tuesday, I was expecting tonight’s experience to be pretty much in line with the average night out at Café Campus: Too many strangers moving together with all the synchronicity of two non-matching puzzle pieces, and too many casual encounters that… Keep Reading
