Music in the time of COVID-19

Unlike people who lived during the Plague, the purpose of singing is no longer limited to religious reasons. Music became a common language where people shared emotions with each other. 


Behind the fetish: visibility, love and fashion of trans women

Jackson, the 45-year-old transgender advocate and actress, was invited by the Brandeis Film, Television and Interactive Media Program for a conversation on Sept. 10. She played Elektra in the “Pose,” a 2018 television show that featured gender-nonconforming ballroom culture in the Black and Latinx community in New York in the late 1980s and early 1990s. 


Surviving 'Outbreak'

The movie was fun to watch but not groundbreaking by any means. However, when I told my mom I would be reviewing “Outbreak” for the Justice, she said she saw it in theaters and freaked out during the scene when a man coughed and spread the virus over an entire movie theater, so I cannot call “Outbreak” forgettable. Take that as you will. Wash your hands and be safe.


BAASA presents: APAHM Opening 2020

On Saturday, March 7, students packed Levin Ballroom, ready for the Brandeis Asian American Students Association’s show – BAASA Presents: APAHM Opening 2020: Reclaiming Voices. Everyone waited with anticipation and excitement to witness the incredible talent and important messages this event offered.


The temptation of 'The Tempest'

“The Tempest” is running for another weekend, and I highly encourage you to go out and see it for yourself. It is the culmination of much hard work, and the actors are a delight to watch. Go immerse yourself in the world of Prospero’s island; despite the production’s shortcomings, you may still emerge a changed person.


Voices of Soul and the Chromatones

Despite performing songs in a different genre and style than VOS, the Chromatones similarly gave an energetic and crowd-pleasing performance that had the audience cheering when the singers would successfully hit higher and longer notes.


Interview with Emily Pollack

 This week, JustArts&Culture talked with Emily Pollack ’21, the director of the play “R&J,” an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” by Joe Calarco. The play reinvents the classic story by setting it in an all-girls Catholic school and tells a series of “forbidden” stories surrounding the four main characters.  


Just Arts Spotlight on the Rose Art Museum

Anyone who has written a Spotlight article or even just been to the Rose will encourage you to go and to see the exhibits on display there. I would like to take it one step further: go to the Rose and spend some quality time with a piece that DOESN’T speak to you. See what happens. It may be nothing, but you’ll never know until you try.
