AQ_Romeo and Juliet_RT1H8A0441_Richard Termine

Aquila Theatre Presents a Minimal, Starkly Beautiful Romeo and Juliet

The story is so well known, star-crossed lovers who are doomed from the start, so why is this production special? This minimal adaptation is a joy of the senses: Simple, pared-down and shadowy, Aquila Theatre’s Romeo and Juliet, directed and adapted by Desiree Sanchez, is a completely new way to experience one of Shakespeare’s most iconic plays. Shakespeare’s eight plus actors are cut down to five, the original seventeen roles reduced to eight. The story is condensed, focused, and chiseled away at until it stands out in uncluttered relief.

According to a recent review by Sam Hall, of DC Metro Theater Arts, “This is a very real and very serious production, full of shadows and chiaroscuro light….We have here a remarkable fusion of design, text, and performance, of consciousness, scenery, sound, light, space, meaning, and movement. This is Romeo and Juliet as high tragedy, a balletic dream …. a grandeur of poetry and high art. It is beautiful and disturbing. Deeply moving, without a trace of sentimentality. ” 

Experience the beauty of Aquila Theatre’s new production of Romeo and Juliet, playing at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts next Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 8:00 PM. There will be a pre-performance discussion with Aquila Theatre tour members at 7:00 pm in the Rozsa lobby. Tickets for Romeo and Juliet are on sale now, $24 for adults, $10 for youth, and no charge for Michigan Tech students with the Experience Tech fee. Advance reserved seating is now available, please order tickets early!

Khana Khazana Serving Hawaiian Cuisine

Khana Khazana, a weekly international lunch will feature Hawaiian cuisine this Friday, October 16.
The side dish is Creamy Potato Salad.  Cookbooks document the popularity of potato salad recipes across mainland America in the early 20th century, and some observers have noted that mainland chefs were being recruited to run Hawaii’s top hotels and restaurants during the same period, bringing their European-influenced culinary backgrounds—including creamy potato salad—with them. It’s a casual dish that easily adapts to any type of food or occasion—it is, in other words, quintessentially local.
The main dish is Huli Huli Chicken a grilled chicken dish in Hawaiian cuisine. Preparation involves basting the chicken constantly with a Huli-huli sauce. Huli Huli Chicken’ (turn, turn) was invented by Ernest Morgado when he cooked teriyaki chicken for a group of farmers in 1955. This has been a Hawaiian staple with sticky rice ever since.
Also serving, fresh Corn Tomato Salad, a favorite summer salad using fresh corn, tomatoes, basil and onions. This tomato salad recipe is a wonderful way to avoid turning on the stove! Works especially well with grilled vegetables.
Serving is from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the MUB Food Court. The whole meal is $7 and includes a fountain soda or $3 for each item.
COMING UP:
  • October 23- Middle Eastern (Felafel, Shwarma, Warbat)

The 41 North Film Festival returns to Michigan Tech with special guests Jimmy Chin and

Nick Berardini

The 41 North Film Festival returns to Michigan Tech’s Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts on Oct.23­25, bringing critically­acclaimed independent films that are currently in festivals or theaters around the country and the world, along with guest filmmakers. All events are free and open to the public.

This year, the festival will feature filmmaker/photographer/climber/athlete Jimmy Chin, whose new documentary Meru tells a compelling story about risk, determination and friendship as it follows the efforts of three internationally famous climbers (Chin among them) to reach the Shark’s Fin summit of Mount Meru in the Himalayas.

The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 23. Chin will speak after the film and participate in a Q&A. He is an award­winning photographer whose work has been featured regularly in National Geographic. The film Meru won the 2015 Sundance Audience Award.

At 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 24, director and journalist Nick Berardini present his new documentary about the Taser Corporation, Killing Them Safely. It is a timely story about the ethics of engineering and marketing, as well as the relationship of the police to the public as mediated through these weapons.

Among the many other films screening during the weekend are Drone, The Wanted 18, King Georges, Mavis!, Here Come the Videofreex, and Victoria.

The festival will also feature an exhibition of documentary storytelling that employs Oculus Rift VR technology. Projects featured include Ferguson Firsthand, which uses a virtual reality environment to invite the audience into the scene, where they can encounter people and objects that tell the story, and Herders, which provides an immersive cinematic look into the lives of Mongolian yak herders.

By bringing compelling stories about the world and today’s important issues to campus—along with filmmakers whose research and artistry tell those stories—the 41 North Film Festival offers the community an opportunity to consider and discuss complex questions around science, engineering, industry, politics, history and the human condition.

Festival sponsors include the Michigan Tech Departments of Humanities and Visual and Performing Arts, and the Van Evera Distinguished Lecture Series at the Rozsa Center. For the full schedule and program, visit: http://41northfilmfest.org and on Facebook. For more information about the festival and its events, please contact Erin Smith at ersmith@mtu.edu.

Get Paid For Your Old Appliances

Upper Peninsula Power Co. customers can recycle their old refrigerators, freezers and more Saturday and get paid for their trouble.

Efficiency UNITED is accepting working freezers, refrigerators, room air conditioners and dehumidifiers (sorry, no stoves or electronics) between 11:00AM to 4:00PM Saturday, at Dee Stadium.

**To participate, bring a recent UPPCO bill along with your clean, empty appliances to the Energy Show. You will receive $50 each for refrigerators and freezers and $15 for dehumidifiers and air conditioners.

“This is a great way to get rid of that energy-hogging appliance, especially if you are moving up to a new energy-efficient model,” said civil engineering senior Lauren Krueger, past president of the Michigan Tech chapter of Rotaract, which is co-sponsoring the event with the Houghton Energy Efficiency Team (HEET). “Old refrigerators use up to four times as much electricity as the latest ENERGY STAR brands.”

What is a Violapalooza?

Lollapalooza with violas? Picture a host of young Kurt Cobains with violins. Playing classical music. And, instead of Nirvana, we’ll have the stars of the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra, special guest artists, along with the emerging, talented violists of the Keweenaw region-all on stage together at the Rozsa! What is a viola you ask? According to Wikipedia: “The viola is a bowed string instrument that is slightly larger than a violin, with a lower and deeper sound.” The KSO’s Violapalooza this Saturday will feature many, many violas! Want to learn more? Come to the 4th Keweenaw String Festival this Saturday, October 10, 2015 at 7:30 PM, at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts, and find out!
