Interest Meeting: Looking for Performers for Balinese Kecak Dance

From Haikal Ramadhan ’16:

For those of you who would like to experience the culture from a land far away: Now you can immerse yourself in the beautiful culture from the island of Bali, Indonesia. Indonesian Society at Wesleyan (Indonesyan) invites you to dance Kecak at Mabuhay this April.

Kecak is a form of traditional Balinese dance and musical, often performed after sunset as a way to narrate the story of Indian epic, Ramayana, thus this performance is also known as Ramayana Monkey Chant. No experience required. No audition. Better yet, you will be sitting for most of the time!

Well, luckily we’re gonna have some beast ass auditions to accompany that performance. For those who do not know, Terpsichore Core is a company that puts on a show every semester for any students who want to dance or choreograph, regardless of previous training. The auditions are for others’ pieces, which range anything from tap and contemporary to ballet and hiphop…and always something fun in between. Terp Core auditions will follow the pieces’ auditions.

Meet us THIS SATURDAY @ 2pm in Fayerweather Dance Studio (next to Usdan). Come open minded and ready to move!

Concert Committee Forum

If last week’s epic Matisyahu/Chiddy Bang meltdown demonstrated anything, it’s that students on all sides of the debate have been disillusioned with the inner-workings of concert-booking at Wesleyan. This forum offers a constructive venue for discussion and change:

  • Booked a show at Wes?
  • Want to book a show here?
  • Have ideas for how the concert committee process could be better?
  • Want to discuss by-law amendments?
  • Just want to complain?

Grab your lunch and come to this meeting on Thursday 4/14 at noon in Fayerweather 106. We will draft amendments to the concert committee’s by-laws (posted on the home page of this Facebook group) to propose to the WSA on Friday and Sunday. The goal is to have a clear and fair process that better corresponds with the realities of Wesleyan’s concert-bookers and music fans.
