I hope everyone is doing well and surviving these busy end of term times. The TSU is hosting another social event to celebrate the end of another semester and to clean up the 4th floor lounge space before we leave for Christmas; this includes the fridge. You are all invited to this Potluck style get together on the evening of Monday, December 5 (following the final Playmaking class at 5:30pm). The second year ensemble can join us at 6:20pm!
We'll be holding a mini (informal) meeting at 5:30 to finish off the semester.
Come enjoy yourselves, bring a dish to share, and celebrate the long awaited last day of classes!
If you have any questions or suggestions don't hesitate to contact me.
Looking forward to seeing all of you next Monday,

As many of you know, the opening night of The Last Seven Words of Fernando Pessoa, the SFU Theatre Mainstage, is fast approaching. To celebrate this exciting occasion, the TSU is hosting an Opening Night Gala following the show on Wednesday, October 26th, from 10pm-12am at W2 Community Media Arts. (151 Cordova St W, Vancouver, BC V6B 5K3)
If you were planning on seeing the play anyways, why not come on opening and stay for night of fun including: music, a cash bar, a variety of food platters, and lots of prizes! I, along with a fantastic event planning committee, have been working hard to organize this social event. So come and meet the actors, and chat with potential future collaborators (especially those newly admitted in the program, this is for you!).
This is also an opportunity to introduce SFU Contemporary Arts students to the amazing new space just across the Atrium. W2 is a brand new community centre looking for creative minds to take advantage of the resources they provide for emerging artists. We may even have small guided tours of the venue, and have a chance to play with the interactive lighting installation currently on display.
If you have any questions, or would like to help out with the event, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Looking forward to seeing you all next Wednesday!
