SFU Theatre Mainstage presents an encounter with Marie Clement's masterful and gripping play The Unnatural and Accidental Women. Written in 2004, the play is based on a thirty year murder case involving the deaths of at least ten women in Vancouver's downtown eastside and is a powerful indictment of the Canadian justice system.

The students of FPA 450 present their encounter with the text and a contemplation of the ongoing travesty of missing and murdered aboriginal women on a national level. 

With special thanks to SFU First Nations Studies, SFU English Department, UBC First Nations Studies, SFU Vancity Office of Community Engagement, and those involved throughout the encountering process.

Through Your Throat: New Music for Flute is a program of new works for the unique instrumentation of solo flute and spoken text. It is presented by Boston-based flutist Leia Slosberg in conjunction with the Simon Fraser University School for the Contemporary Arts and MFA student Ben Wylie.

The concert features four pieces by young composers from Boston, Vancouver, and Chicago, commissioned by Slosberg specifically for this unique combination. Alongside these works will be two recent pieces, also written for Slosberg, by Boston based composers Evan Raczynski and Ethan Parcell as well as the seminal flute solo "Sori" by Isang Yun. This will mark the Vancouver premiere for both the flutist and most of the pieces on the program. Slosberg is currently touring this program through Chicago, Vancouver, Seattle, and Boston.
