News (Alberta): Selected University of Alberta Arts Programs Suspending Admissions Effective Immediately

UofA-COLOURApproximately 20 arts programs currently offered by the University of Alberta, including the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Technical Theatre, have undergone the first step of being cut.

Lesley Cormack, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, has circulated a memo to the Faculty of Arts Chairs regarding the immediate suspension of admissions the programs. Click here to read the memo and view which programs will suspend admissions.

The BFA in Technical Theatre has two streams – Technical Theatre and Stage Management. The programs were chosen “because they have had 10 or fewer students enrolled as majors” in each fall term, from 2005 to 2012, and is in response to funding cuts to Advanced Education announced in the provincial Budget 2013. However, it should also be noted that the BFA in Technical Theatre has a low annual student intake quota which limits the amount of students can enrol in the program.

Earlier this year, Mount Royal University (MRU) in Calgary suspended three degree programs and four certification programs in response to the  6.8% cut to Albertan universities operating budgets, including Music Performance and Theatre Arts. (Both the performance and the technical production streams of the Theatre Arts program were suspended.) In May 2012, Keyano College also eliminated some arts programs including its theatre program.

Auditions (Calgary): Crime in the Mad House – Organized Crime Productions

Lab3Auditions (Calgary): Crime in the Madhouse.  Organized Crime Productions

Organized Crime Productions presents:

Crime in the Madhouse by Andre de Lorde

These evenings of theatre will be in the style of Grand Guignol (pronounced Geen-yole); early 1900s naturalistic horror shows. These evenings were graphic, amoral horror entertainment. An evening of Grand Guignol consisted of “hot and cold showers”; horror play, a sex farce and another horror play. Our audiences will go on a rollercoaster of emotions; laughing one minutes and screaming the next.

The style demands heightened physicality, gory effects and emotional risk. There will be workshops in the style for the cast.   Actors will explore being athletes of the emotions and play with ferocious abandon!

The evening will feature two horror plays and one farcical comedy.

Synopses

Crime in the Madhouse: In a remote lunatic asylum, under the auspices of an order of nuns, three mad old women torment a young girl.

Tics, or Doing the Deed: A broad sex farce about misdeeds. All of the male characters are afflicted with pronounced tics, which come over them after the act of love.

Final Kiss: A disfigured man, whose only comfort comes from an opium hookah, one year after he was brutally burned by his ex, seeks revenge.

Auditions: September 8: 4pm-7pm at Loose Moose Theatre

Auditions will be group exercises and cold reads.

ALSO LOOKING FOR CREW: Tech, Lighting designer, Stage Manager

Rehearsals: September 23-October 17th 

Shows: October 24-November 2nd. Organized Crime Production will be performed at the Bird and Stone theatre just in time for Halloween.

NOTE: Cast and Crew must be over 18 year of age. Grand Guignol is not for the faint of heart….it ain’t your grandma’s night at the theatre. If you’re a fan of laughter, terror and hearing the audience squeal… this is for you.

Interested?  Please include a resume and headshot in an e-mail to nelalice@gmail.com.

Contact: Alice Nelson, nelalice@gmail.com, or (403) 463-7267

This is an unpaid production, as Organized Crime is a new company, striving to take risks and bring controversial subject matter to stage.  Join the Crime…..

Alberta Fringe Festivals (Edmonton): Held – mindhive collective

From top, Brooke Leifso, Andrea Rankin and Tonya Rae Chrystian

Held, by mindhive collective

Everyone’s holding onto something. What does it take to retrace the steps back to the first arms that held you? Held is the latest creation from the acclaimed collective that birthed s/kin and A Wake, exploring what it is to be held and what it means to let go.

Held follows the story of a baby’s last moments in the womb, swimming around in the ancestral soup. Using movement, installation, and dialogue, mindhive collective attempts to untangle and explore the patterns that we inherit to help us cope and survive in a world. Often these patterns, become a hindrance, an annoyance of our mothers that we don’t even know we mirror or re-act. Held pieces together a family history that echoes and reverberates through a child that is about to be born.

Runtime: 50 minutes
Co-devisers and Performers: Andrea Rankin, Brooke Leifso and Tonya Rae Chrystian, Laura Porter
Installation & Lighting Design: Laura Porter and Geneva Seaton
Projection Design: Alysha Creighton
Sound Design: Misha Hlebnicov
Production Coordinator: Aliya Jamal

– Jubliations
– Aussie Rules
– Wine INK

How do I get to Dancers’ Studio West?

Dancers’ Studio West is only 2 blocks away from the new Sunalta C-Train station and, as we will have a bar at the event, we encourage you to take the train to get there!
