Wild Things - SFU Undergraduate Semester in Dialogue Fall 09

Another guest post from Melanie, courtesy the Performing Vancouver blog:

Last semester, I participated in the Undergraduate Semester in Dialogue program at SFU. The program adopts a different theme every semester and last FALL 09 semester was entitled, Art in Community: Creating Cultures of Ingenuity and Innovation. Fancy, yes? And pretty amazing.

"A group of sixteen Simon Fraser University students were given less than 48 hours to come up with an idea for and choreograph a public performance using choral or spoken word. This flash mob style piece was performed on the Seabus from North Vancouver around noon on Friday, October 23 2009 to a surprised ferry of passengers."

Enjoy the performance! Our singing is a little off key, but I think we make it up with enthusiasm.

Fantastic, Melanie. The bewildered faces of the poor Seabus patrons are priceless. Talk about performing the (floating) city!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
