Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE: Kitt & Jane @8pm 2013-10-17 20:00:00
Description

KITT & JANE

An Interactive Guide to the Near Post-Apocalyptic Future
Presented as this year's Spotlight on Alumni

Created by Ingrid Hansen, Kathleen Greenfield & Rod Peter Jr.
Produced by SNAFU Dance Theatre

While making a presentation to their school, two socially awkward 14-year-olds hijack the event and launch into fantastical instructions on how to survive the impending apocalypse. Full of “ingenuity, visual magic and strange humour” – and a few rollicking musical numbers – at its heart, this play is a poignant exploration of the world today’s youth are inheriting, and what they’re prepared to do about it. A stand-alone sequel to the highly acclaimed Little Orange Man, this winner of the Critics’ Choice Spotlight Award for Best New Play is a “hilarious, invigorating piece of theatre that will follow you home.”(CVVMagazine.com)

Exhibit Three Cornered World 2013-10-17 11:00:00
Description

Visual Arts grad Anne Heeney presents her Three Cornered World, a collection of narrative paintings and abstracts. "Drawing will always be a substantial and universal pillar," says Heeney. "Colour, however, is deeply personal. I believe the more abstract pictures demonstrate both convictions. The only way to get the point of art is to experience it raw, in galleries, in museums and in studios—regularly." Runs daily to October 19 (closed Thanksgiving Monday).

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - Unsettling Theology: Questioning the Theologies that Supported Christian Participation in the Indian Residential Schools 2013-10-17 16:30:00
Description

CSRS Public Lecture Series

Unsettling Theology: Questioning the Theologies that Supported Christian Participation in the Indian Residential Schools
Bruce Bryant-Scott, CSRS Visiting Research Fellow, Heythrop College, University of London

Canadian Churches ended their participation in the Indian Residential Schools in the late 1960's and '70s. Church leaders have apologised, and money has been paid by the churches and the federal government to Residential School survivors. So is everything OK?

In this talk, Bruce Bryant-Scott will argue that the theologies in operation in Indian Residential Schools during the 19th and 20th centuries continue to influence the churches of today. As such, while we need to analyze this legacy of colonialism, racism, and imperialism, Christian communities would benefit from an also examination and decolonization of their systems of belief and practice. This lecture will use the ethical philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas (1906-1995), to highlight some of the ways in which this may be accomplished.

Bruce Bryant-Scott is a Visiting Fellow of the CSRS, and a PhD candidate at Heythrop College, University of London. He has been an ordained Anglican minister for over 25 years, serving in parishes in Ontario and British Columbia. He was Executive Officer and Archdeacon of the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia from 2004-2012, and is now an honorary assistant at the parish of St. Mary the Virgin, Oak Bay.

This lecture is a part of The John Albert Hall Lecture Series which features expert perspectives on the changing role of religion in contemporary society. The John Albert Hall Lectures are videotaped and available online HERE.
