Theatre AUM presents Woyzeck

Sacrificed to powers larger than himself, Woyzeck is one of the theatre’s first anti-heroes. He serves a German captain and makes money by allowing a doctor to experiment on him, but his deeper morality leads him to a tragic end. A remarkable piece of theatre, Woyzeck is not bound by strictures of conventional space and time. It is a tiny play but an epic.

Woyzeck opens Nov. 2 and runs Thursday thru Saturday, Nov. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11 and Sunday, Nov. 12. Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday thru Saturday and 2 p.m. for the Sunday matinee.

Internship in Japan informational

The JET (Japanese Exchange & Teaching) Program is a Japanese government-supported internship program. Since 1986, more than 60 thousand JET Program participants from over 40 countries have lived and worked in cities, towns and villages throughout Japan. Through this program, students will have the opportunity to teach English in Japan and get paid. U.S. students with a bachelor’s degree are eligible to apply.

AUM Professor Naomi Chiba invited the ambassadors from the Consulate-General of Japan in Atlanta, Ga. to come to AUM and give our students a comprehensive introduction about the JET Program. They will bring the traditional instruments and give our students a Japanese music festival as well.

This is not only a great job opportunity, but also a good chance to have a hands-on experience with Japanese culture.

Political Film Series: When Trumpets Fade

The film revolves around the actions of Private David Manning, a soldier in the 28th Infantry Division who, in order to survive, does just enough to stay out of trouble, but not enough to actually make a difference. HBO's When Trumpets Fade is one of the most underrated war movies; a movie that provides the audience with a close-up look at the brutal reality of combat and insights to what war does to a man.

The film will be introduced by Dr. Ben Severance, professor in the Department of History & World Languages & Cultures, and is co-sponsored by the College of Arts & Sciences.
