Romeo + Juliet

My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.

From the moment they first check each other out at the Capulet’s party, Romeo and Juliet cannot bear to be apart. Their love is immediate, passionate, all consuming. But the ridiculous hate between their warring families surrounds their nascent union with danger. Young love proves no match for the grotesque greed and righteous rancor that defines Romeo and Juliet’s Verona. One of the greatest love stories ever told, Romeo and Juliet remains a breathtaking tale of love in the face of hatred, and our inability to halt tragedy before it spirals out of our control.

A stupidly large cast, poisonous nightmares, more gold and glitter than you can imagine, the Rolling Stones, movement and dance, high heels with lip synching, some sword fighting, and a good old punch. In their contemporary production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, SFU's School for the Contemporary Arts asks, to what extend do we fall prey to the romantic glorification of love? And, is the absence of love a testament to a love of death?

Blackbox: Chère Niki

(or Tangible Expressions of Innate Creative Powers Wanting and Bursting to be Expressed by All Human Beings)

Blackbox: Chère Niki

This year's Black Box class – an SCA theatre class in which students create a series of original performances over a semester – will involve an unprecedented level of collaboration and co-creation between Performance and Production and Design students in the Theatre Program, inspired in part by the work of French artist Niki de Saint Phalle.

We created this show in reaction to the work and life of Niki de Saint Phalle, a French, self-taught artist and the only female contributor to the New Realism art movement in Europe.  This piece is a theatrical entanglement of her life, her work, our feelings and thoughts about her work and its relevance, our lives, our histories and ourselves. Niki was obsessed with the “monumental,” and despite having left so much of herself behind for us to learn from, we feel that she is unknowable, almost mythical. What we have made is a record of our attempt to interpret Niki’s many messages and understand how they apply to our lives.

Two shows nightly: 7pm and 9pm.

Presented by the School for the Contemporary Arts at SFU.
