The Crimson Arts Reviews "Seesaws in the Yard"

What is a seesaw, truly, but a simple metaphor for the fragile ebb and flow of humanity that somehow defines us all? What is a teeter-totter but a subtle allegory for the intricate dance of birth and death that emboldens yet imperils our lives?

These are the issues that Seesaws in the Yard—a flawed but compelling work of outdoor performance art in Harvard Yard—seeks to address. Ultimately, however, the work poses more questions than it resolves.

"Life" Flawed but Compelling

It begins in celebration, and ends in the darkness of eternity, but in between "Life," which opened about four billion years ago on Earth, is a mixed bag.
 
To begin with, in the opinion of this reviewer, the setting is overly simplistic. It's mostly a mix of dirt, grass, and water, with some pavement thrown in. Occasionally the audience will see a mountain, the sky, or even a waterfall– but most of the time it's the same thing every day.
 

American Swiper: Film Review

ODESSA, TX- Starring a kleptomaniac, naked fox with a passion for fighting foreigners, the film American Swiper has earned more money in the box office than UNICEF has raised in aid for the children of Afghanistan. Based on true events, American Swiper tells the story of Chriswiper Kyle, the deadliest swiper in American history, who achieved over 150 confirmed swipes during his tours of duty. The film is considered incredibly controversial, with some people calling it the veneration of prejudiced murder, and white people calling it a loveable, patriotic story.
