Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE: Kitt & Jane @8pm 2013-10-24 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)

Lecture/Seminar CSRS Public Lecture Series - The Unexpected Other: Place of Worship, City Planning, and Social Transactions in Montreal 2013-10-24 19:30:00
Description

CSRS Public Lecture Series

*The Unexpected Other: Place of Worship, City Planning, and Social Transactions in Montréal
Annick Germain, Centre for Urbanization, Culture, and Society; National Institute for Scientific Research

Until the mid-1990s, municipalities in greater Montréal appeared unconcerned about the increasing number of places of worship in the region. Over the past 15 years, however, this situation has dramatically changed. In this presentation, Annick Germain explores the underlying issues of this shift, and describes how the different stakeholders (municipal civil servants, elected officials, religious groups, residents) engaged in social transactions as tensions emerged during the planning of these venerated spaces. After providing a brief historical portrait of the geography of places of worship in Montréal, Germain will discuss the lessons learned from a study on conflicts concerning several different types of sites of worship.

Annick Germain is a professor at the Centre for Urbanization, Culture, and Society at the National Institute for Scientific Research (Montréal) where she teaches in the Urban Studies program. Until recently, she was the Director of the Metropolis Center in Quebec on immigration and integration.

*PLEASE NOTE: This lecture is part of The City Talks Lecture Series and will be held at the Legacy Gallery, 630 Yates Street at 7:30 pm.

Co-sponsored by UVic's Committee for Urban Studies.

Film "Fruitvale Station" 2013-10-24 19:15:00
Description

 

FRUITVALE STATION

Director: Ryan Coogler   USA, 2013, 85 min; 14A

FOUR STARS! The astonishing directorial debut of 27-year-old Ryan Coogler, arrives with considerable wind at its back: Not only did this urban drama win big awards at the Sundance and Cannes film festivals, but its story — about an unarmed young man who was shot and killed in Oakland in the early hours of New Year’s Day 2009 — has intersected with the death of Trayvon Martin. A topical film, no doubt. But what makes it a must-see is its timelessness: In this absorbing, finally devastating portrait of a 22-year-old man struggling with a troubled past and cut down before he can build a future, Coogler allows Grant to exist as a complex, even contradictory human. Because Coogler is in such superb control as an artist, he never succumbs to demonizing or sensationalism. Fruitvale Station isn’t just a great film about a timely subject but a great film, period. –Washington Post

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Lecture by Laura Freixas, Writer, Translator, Editor (Madrid, Spain) 2013-10-24 10:15:00
Description

Lansdowne Lecture by Laura Freixas (Writer, Translator, Editor), Madrid, Spain

Presentation to the 29th Annual Colloquium of the Department of Hispanic & Italian Studies:

¿Es hermafrodita la literatura?  O cómo quise ser escritor pero me convertí en escritora (in Spanish)

Laura Freixas is a well-known Spanish literary figure whose activity has centered on women writers, autobiography, and motherhood.  As a writer, editor, literary critic, translator, journalist, and literature professor, she has been active in the Spanish literary arena for the last two decades. She is the author of four novels, two collections of short stories, numerous anthologies of works by women writers, and several monographs and translations.  She has lectured extensively both in the UK and in the USA and has directed numerous creative writing workshops in her native country.

"When a female writer publishes her first book, she probably does not consider herself as a woman writer, nor does she have a deliberate intention of writing works that can be in any way described as "feminine."  However, the reception of her books from both the critics and the readers, and the reflection of herself offered by the mirror of the media, will soon make her realize that whatever her intentions, she is seen as a woman writer who writes women's literature.  Is there any truth in that?  What is the meaning that readers, media and critics give to those terms, and what is the meaning that women writers themselves can give to them?"

Note:  This lecture will be presented in Spanish.
