And a VERY belated Happy New Year to you all! (Yes, I am fully aware New Year was over a month ago… but I haven’t spoken to you all, so this is acceptable, I hope!)
I really hope you all got through your exams and assignments okay and have truly settled back into your rehearsals and performances if you’ve had some already!
Performing Arts Committee stayed super busy over Christmas and exam time keeping on top of all things PA. We even had a lovely committee meeting next door to a Baby SUSO rehearsal where we all danced along to Pirates of the Caribbean and shouted a lot! Such fun!
We hope you all enjoyed the Winter Warmer on the last day of term! We had a fantastic turn out from both performers and audience – what a great way to finish the term! The TG Nativity has still left me scarred, however…
I won’t type out a long update of all groups (I’ll leave that to next weeks rep post!), but I’ll let you know a couple of things we’re up to!
The PA Review has started! This year we’re trying to improve things for your future members and committees! We’re busy compiling all things we don’t like about how Performing Arts is run, our position in SUSU, our relationship with university – everything! If you’d like to have a moan about PA, (or tell us we’re great!). Please fill out these short surveys (more SUSU based ones to released soon!):
Committee Survey: http://goo.gl/forms/cVHP0X8nHn
Member Survey: http://goo.gl/forms/Hw0gTnmr7v
The deadline for filling these out is 14th February at 11:59pm!
SIPAA (Students in Performing Arts Association) are aiming to hold a regional conference here in Southampton for all PA groups! This will includes talks from professionals, performances, key-note discussions and an awards ceremony! We really want to kick SIPAA off the ground running – so please register your interest in the conference by filling in the form below:
The conference will aim to take place on the 15th- 16th of April.
This open to all groups at university, so if you have any fellow Performing Arts friends – invite them over to Southampton, we’d love to meet them!
PA AGM will be taking place on the afternoon of the 20th April. If you’re interested in running for a position on the Performing Arts Committee, please contact the current position holder! (Contact details on the website!). More information to be released via our Facebook page very soon!
The PA Show is back on Surge Radio on Mondays at 12pm! Tomorrow (8th Feb), we are joined by the cast and team of LOpSoc’s Fiddler on the Roof and we’ll also be telling you about the weekends many dance competitions and a very special music reunion!
That’s all for now! Please keep in touch with us via Facebook letting us know about all events, projects, concerns, anything you’d like to talk with us about- we’re always happy to listen!
And stayed tuned to the blog for some real knitty-gritty information of what we’re doing to look after Performing Arts!
