I’m looking for three male and three female college-aged actors to act in a comedy about six friends who go on a camping trip. When the girls branch off on their own adventure, shenanigans ensue for the boys who are left behind. We’re looking for actors who are available for a rehearsal period, filming and are comfortable in the outdoors. It would be an unpaid position. If you are interested please email i_ellsworth@coloradocollege.edu or text 505-695-5149.

Thursday, October 31 3-4:30pm
FAC Education Studio (Room 236)

Rosy Simas is a Haudenosaunee, Seneca, Heron clan dance artist and political advocate. In her own words, Simas’ work has for more than twenty years dealt with “a wide range of political, social, and cultural subject matter from a Native feminist perspective.” Her performances have been presented in major universities (Northwestern, UC Riverside, Minnesota) and in prestigious theaters throughout the U.S., Canada, and France. In this talk, Simas will be presenting an overview of her choreography, which “investigates how culture, history, and identity are stored in the body and expressed in movement.”
