“And I have noticed students over the last year that are more socially shy, step up into bigger roles at the school.”. There was a beehive of boisterous energy at Hopkins on Friday, with hundreds of seventh- and eighth-graders, clustered together, chatting, eating and goofing off, while others stood far from the event, playing basketball with their usual friends. An impromptu dance party broke out in one corner of the courtyard, and a group of leadership students gave out gold star stickers and colorful rubber wrist bands emblazoned with slogans about ending social isolation.

Possokhov’s “Rite” began with promise. The women slid down the ramped platform like cats in heat, until they pulled their pastel-splashed shifts over their heads and vibrated like butterflies. But the trite and the bizarre weren’t far behind. Soon, the men got busy hauling the women in spread-eagle position like split sides of beef or losing themselves in the women’s captive crotches with pointless repetition. The appearance of a weird, hotheaded creature — a twinned, centaurlike being (wonderfully embodied by Garen Scribner and James Sofranko) —— would have been comical if its purpose weren’t so dark: to push the bacchanal toward sacrifice. It was a sacrifice that had none of the inevitability of ritual and all of the gratuitousness of a random act of violence.
