SCA Fall 2014 Orientation

For new students

29 August 2014, 2:30pm
1st floor lobby, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts
,

SCA Fall 2014 Orientation

All new students interested in Contemporary Arts courses are welcome. Also, returning students are invited to hear the keynote talk and have snacks while talking to the new group of students at the break-out/mingle session.

Aside from SCA alum Pedro Chamale's amazing keynote, we will also hear from Student Services, our departmental Student Unions, Career Services, and a bunch of our friendly staff from the School.

The event is free and there is lots of room so if you want to bring your folks, that's fine. This is the welcome event aimed at SCA students, so you might get some benefit from attending the Burnaby Welcome event, but it isn't necessary.

 

Main presentation:
2:30pm, Third floor, Rm 3200

Break-out/Mingle:
4:00pm, Fourth floor, Rm 4390

Keynote Talk:

Pedro Chamale
Co-artistic director, rice and beans theatre
BFA (Theatre) 2010

Pedro Chamale received his BFA in theatre performance from SFU. From there Pedro has moved on performing in such projects as: The Walking Projects: Vancouver, Crawling, Weeping, Betting (Battery Opera), Matador vs Minotaur (Ensemble Fou), From Whence He Came (rice & beans theatre), Are We There Yet? (Neworld Theatre), The Show Must Go On and Poetics: a ballet brute (Push Festival). 

As co-artistic director of rice & beans theatre, Pedro has directed Mobils In Mobili and The Libation Bearers for the company. Most recently, with fellow rice & beans artistic director Derek Chan, he co-directed the gods detest you and Canvas, a live tattooing theatre performance for Hive: New Bees 3. Pedro is most interested in performance, directing, writing and hopes to facilitate, create and collaborate with anyone who is interested. Pedro would like the theatre he creates to push audience’s perspectives, values and ideas of theatre while telling interesting, evocative and funny stories. 

Since the company's inception Pedro has had his hands in the producing of all of the company's projects and has worked behind the scenes with local theatre companies such as Leaky Heaven, Boca del Lupo, and The Only Animal.

20.20.20

Presented by DancersDancing and SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs

Studio T, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 W. Hastings St.
$25 general/ $20 senior/student. ,

20.20.20

Dancers Dancing

A collaborative effort and co-presentation with Dancers Dancing and SFU Woodward’s, "20.20.20" captures the vibrant atmosphere of urban Vancouver in all of its complexities, from a uniquely authentic lens.

Celebrating 20 years of working in Vancouver, choreographer Judith Garay looks at 20 intersections in the city to set 20 dancers in motion inspired by interactions of  architecture, pigeons, overpasses, green spaces, mountain views, skateboards and especially the people - old and young. Contrast and contradiction drive the work to be physically exhilarating and thoughtful, pedestrian and emotionally charged.

The artists have dug their heels into the world of Vancouver, and are continuously collaborating to create the most authentic ambiance achievable. The artists have brought their experiences and observations back to studio, where it has been a process of utilizing pedestrian research and full body articulation to create beauty in otherwise mundane and overlooked aspects of city life. The Georgia Straight says “the group is solid in Garay’s lush universe…the result is rich and complete…” The synergy of their work is expressed organically in the process, as the dancers have felt emotionally charged by the city itself. They expect a similar visceral reaction for audiences alike. 

As the team continues to organically replicate the city life to stage, they have been surprised in how the process is revealing Vancouver in its entire beautiful dichotomy. Contrasts keep resurfacing, like urban and green, rich and poor, young and old and the infamous weather that changes a sky of gray clouds to one of blinding sun. These balances reflect the ever-evolving city from day to day, and naturally begs for a creative portrayal of the city that is full of movement and life. What better medium then dance?

With music by Stefan Smulovitz, lighting by John Carter and costumes by Margaret Jenkins “20.20.20” will steer away from a traditional tour of Vancouver, instead providing multiple ways to emotionally experience the city in its full richness.
