Not enough auditions for you? Desperate Measures to the rescue.

From Ariel Lesnick ’14:

Do you enjoy making shit up?
Do you watch “Whose Line is it Anyway?” in those fabulous late-night ABC Family time-slots?
Do you mime out the majority of your actions to be ultra-specific (slash talk with your
hands a lot)?
Then have WE got the place for you!!

Come audition for Desperate Measures, Wesleyan’s short-form Improv comedy group!! Auditions will be held on Sunday from 3-4 pm and Tuesday from 9-10 pm in the “East Room” (which is in the Theatre Studios in the CFA). No experience is necessary, just come on down and I am sure, laughter will ensue!

There will probably be a silly hat. No promises though.

Get To Know SHOFCO!

Emily Weitzman ’14 writes:

Are you a freshman looking to get more involved at Wes? A sophomore, junior, or senior who has never gotten a chance to hear what SHOFCO is all about? Shining Hope for Communities is a non-profit organization started by Wesleyan students, with the mission of bringing education and gender equality to Kibera, Kenya, Africa’s largest slum. Check out this video for more info.

At this event, you will hear from students who have just returned from a summer teaching at the Kibera School for Girls, and students who are working hard for SHOFCO right here at Wesleyan. SHOFCO is doing big things. Come to PAC001 tomorrow at 4:30pm to learn how you can become a part of it.

Zombie Art Collective Info Meeting

Does it matter that Zonbi Nzumbe (class of 1831, apparently) has been dead for at least a century and a half? Not to us at Wesleying, it doesnt! We’ll post pretty much whatever we get. Unless we, uh, don’t. Sorry. Anyway:

Interested in public art, activist art, free art, art for everybody? Noticed the lack of visual arts culture on campus? Thirsty for blood, or at the very least nourishment for your creative soul?

Come to the Zombie Art Collective info meating and jam tomorrow at 3 PM, whether or not you self-identify as an “artist.” We don’t adhere to the artist-nonartist binary.

The Zombie Art Collective facilitates happenings, spaces, group projects, events and workshops in the Wesleyan community.

Zombie is a non-hierarchical assortment of people aiding one another in projects to reclaim public space for personal expression. Zombies seek to create art that is involved, public, participatory, fluid, and dangerous; in which the role of the artist is to instigate, and the role of the audience is to become co-conspirators in our little mental coup against passivity.

Zombies want your brain.

Where: University Organizing Center, 190 High St.
Who: You and all your friends
When: Friday, 3 PM

Scared shitless yet? No? How about now? Yeah, that’s right. You better come (and yes, that means you, Habibi Mizuno ’15).
