Fellini´s Diary

Aaron Maines ´95, an alumnus of the College´s Toor Cummings Center for International Studies and the Liberal Arts, overcame his early struggles with Italian to become one of the foremost translators of Italian to English.

Dress Rehearsal

Photographer A. Vincent Scarano documented an evening dress rehearsal on the stage of Palmer Auditorium as students prepared for a two-night dance concert. The concert featured more than 40 students performing works choreographed by the College´s Dance Department faculty members Shani Collins, David Dorfman MFA ´81, Heidi Henderson and Adele Myers. Students performed a reconstruction of "Swan Lake" by ballet instructor Robyne Watkin and choreography by guest artist Monica Bill Barnes, who recently presented work at New York City Center´s Fall for Dance Festival. Lighting design was by Jesse Belsky, a recent MFA graduate of the Yale School of Drama. Senior dance majors Lily Ockwell ´10 and Liz Young ´10 presented their own choreography, which was performed at the 2010 American College Dance Festival Association´s New England Region Conference at Boston University in February.
