Hello SFU Acting Students
My names is David C. Jones and I am producing (and hosting) that will take place at SFU downtown campus on Saturday December 8th.
The theme is a 1920’s Speak Easy.
I am looking to engage a diverse set of actors to play site-specific roving characters.
There will be street urchins, as well as well-to-do people of position, cigarette girls and gangsters, flappers and undercover police as well.
There would be one walk through rehearsal a couple of days before.
The event would pay a small honorarium to those actors selected. Open to all ethnicities.
If you are interested in being considered please email me email@example.com
- your picture (if you have any 1920’s wardrobe – a picture in that would be great)
- your contact details
The script for the event is still being written so we are not exactly sure how many actors we will need.
Thank you for your interest.

The Simulation Training and Exercise Collaboratory (SIMTEC) research project is a multi-year research project which will assist Emergency Operations Centre personnel to develop a more considered approach of the psychosocial dimensions of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) events and other hazardous events.
SIMTEC is looking for 2-3 people to play Field Reporters in a functional tabletop exercise, which will be filmed. The video will be used for training purposes and will be made available through a publicly available web-based collaborator. Filming (approximately 1 day) will begin in the last week of August. Honouraria will be provided.
If you are interested, please send resume and head shots to firstname.lastname@example.org

The following message is sent out on behalf of Tim Rahilly, Associate Vice-President, Students. Apologies for cross posting.
To the campus community:
I am writing to inform the campus community about basic medical insurance for new international students while they await MSP coverage. These changes were approved by SFU’s Board of Governors and will take effect in January 2013. Detailed information and follow-up contact information is provided below.Mandatory Basic Medical Insurance Plan for New International StudentsSpring 2013Background
Currently, international students (visa and exchange students) must obtain basic medical insurance for the duration of their stay in Canada, as per the SFU calendar. In the past, many students did not comply and this has placed hardship on them and limited the University’s ability to secure medical treatment (e.g. physical, psychiatric) for students in need.Changes effective January 1, 2013
The University has completed a procurement process to select a vendor of choice (Guard.me -http://www.guard.me/
) to offer a 4 month mandatory medical insurance plan. This plan provides coverage for the waiting period for MSP and can be used together with the SFSS/GSS extended benefit plan. This process will be implemented January 2013 for all new, incoming international and exchange students (undergraduate and graduate).
The cost per student will be approximately $353/term and will be added to their student fees. Opt out procedures will be in place for students who can demonstrate BC MSP or acceptable equivalent coverage.
A medical insurance website for ALL students has been developed: www.sfu.ca/medical-insurance
and a communication plan will notify new international students of these upcoming changes.
If you have any information on your departmental websites about student medical insurance, kindly redirect to this site immediately . All vendor information must be with regard to Guard.me only as of August 14, 2012. An FAQ for staff will be developed as we get closer to implementation.Note for Graduate Programs
Visiting Graduate Research Students will not be included in this mandatory plan, but they also must have medical insurance for the duration of their visit. This new plan will be available to them for purchase directly from the vendor, at the negotiated group rate. If they are staying longer than 6 months, they must also apply for and pay for BC MSP. For more information, please see http://www.sfu.ca/dean-gradstudies/visiting-researchers/Requirements.html
If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to this plan, please contact one of us:

· Rohene Bouajram, Senior International Student Advisor

Where your money will go, should you decide to donate:
Some of our Costs Include,
Festival Membership for the Vancouver International Fringe Festival: $500.00
Rights to the Play; Three More Sleepless Nights: $450.00
Liquor Licence: $250.00 + $100
Part and parcel of our show’s experience requires taking a risk and accepting an invitation into a stranger's home, accompanied by other unfamiliar faces of both fellow audience and company members. We believe that this unique atmosphere promotes a different kind of theatre experience, one that is enhanced by the opportunity to partake in a drink (or two) with your housemates for the evening. We can never quite say when the show will begin, so giving our audience the chance to unwind and settle in over a glass of wine or a beer always makes for a great start to the evening.
Also, as you can see we are attempting to subsidise only part of our costs and are not planning on paying the actors or the production team. This is an experiment for all parties and a labour of love that has been many years and versions in the making. Of course if you would like to donate a little more and exceed our goal (as it is flexible), this is always an option too. Any little bit helps! We hope to be able to continue making exciting work that challenges the assumptions of the theatre.
The production costs are cut down a great deal by the very generous donations of space by various people. You can imagine the difficulty in attempting to rehearse and perform a show which can never occur in the same place twice. We could not do this without everyone’s help.
Thank you to for your past, present and future contributions!

Hi SFU Actors –
My name is Charlotte Newman. I’m a going into my third year in SFU’s dance program, and am the Co-President of the Dance Student Union. In August I’m planning to take a movement intensive here in Vancouver, and I wanted to pass on some information about it to YOU.
Way Out West (WOW) is a 5 day intensive lead by Jennifer Mascall, artistic director of Mascall Dance.
I am going to WOW because the intensive had been strongly suggested to me by friends and professors.
Did you know that Jennifer Mascall wants to work with any type of movement artist?
Dancer, actor, yoga practirioner, acrobat – this intensive has something to offer everyone!
- the intensive combines 5 days of 5 classes per day including
• Technique in Body-Mind Centering
• Experiential Anatomy
- WOW will craft a personalized program so you can take as many or few classes as your schedule allows
Jennifer says –
“As an actor WoW will benefit you in the following ways:
• My studies with Linda Putnam, whose syllabus derived from many sources from Growtowski to Sufism, have taught me to work with theatre practitioners in a way that opens a doorway into the body so that dance can become comprehensible .
• Studying the entrance and exits of impulses and tracking them through the body is a way of improvising with the audience while keeping attention.
• Experiential anatomy is a way into the body that provides a huge source of images and research material for performance.
• Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen teaches that the endocrine system is the system we performers communicate with. Through the study of this system we will increase the range of performance qualities.”
Check out more Mascall Dance’s website for more information at http://www.mascalldance.ca/way-out-west-2012/
Check out this video of some of Jennifer’s work at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCRLcE0dJuc
Please contact me to inquire about scholarships to this intensive.
I’m happy to answer any questions I can!
