Samsara Saturday Night

Matthew Donahue ’14 writes in for Sammmmsara on Saturday:

Samsara is the annual South Asian culture show here at Wesleyan, and this year it’s back with a bang! Come join us for fun and laughter as you enjoy a show that combines theater, music, dance and above all, a love for South Asia! This year we are happy to welcome back the nationally acclaimed dance team from Brown Univeristy, Brown Badmaash, to join in our festivities, and we hope to get a big turnout because all of our proceeds will go towards helping provide clean water in the slums of Bangladesh and helping ensure education is universally available in certain provinces of India. Tickets are available at the box office. This is definitely something you WON’T want to miss!

Date:   Saturday, Dec. 1
Time:   8:30 PM – 10:00 PM
Place:  Crowell Concert Hall
