Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE: Picnic @8pm 2014-02-19 20:00:00
Description

PICNIC

By William Inge
Directed by Peter J. McGuire

On the last day of summer in small town Kansas, unfulfilled dreams and repressed desires come to a head when a charismatic young drifter arrives in town. His combination of rough manners and titillating charm sends everyone reeling, including the Owens sisters (Millie, the smart one, and Madge, the pretty one), their determined mother, Madge’s college-bound boyfriend, the watchful neighbour and the spinster schoolteacher who boards at the Owens’ house. This 1953 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama delves into the post-war/pre-feminist American psyche, when youth dreamed big and yearned for change while an older generation held on to, even while sometimes lamenting, traditional ways.

Lecture/Seminar CFGS Global Talks - Kelly Bannister: Topic TBD 2014-02-19 10:30:00
Description

Through demonstration and a simple ‘movement experiment’ using the martial art of Aikido, we ask the question: Can we find a physical way to experience the concept of “ethical space” as proposed by Cree scholar Willie Ermine in research involving Indigenous peoples? If so, does this embodiment complement our understanding of research ethics as they are currently codified, perhaps moving us from thinking to feeling and towards relating to one another in new ways?

Film "The Hunt" - ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM! 2014-02-19 19:00:00
Description

THE HUNT

Director: Thomas Vinterberg  

Denmark, 2012, 116 min; Danish with subtitles; 18A

OSCAR NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM!

Don’t let the subject matter put you off; It is rare that a film can make you laugh, cry and shake with fury all at the same time Lucas (Mads Mikkelsen), a divorced kindergarten teacher, is falsely accused of exposing himself by a five-year-old girl in his care, and the rumour dissipates through the community. Mikkelsen has never been better. This is cinema that sinks its claws into your back. –The Telegraph
