CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS: Corpus Delicti: Just Desserts, Local Infinities Visual Theater

Call for Volunteers: Local Infinities Visual Theater

Local Infinities Visual Theater is lookng for volunteers for Corpus Delicti: Just Desserts, a new performance.

Peering down from the steeply raked seats of a disused Operating Theater, audience members will witness the dissection of a cadaver, cast in gelatin, as we explore the art & science of anatomy, as practiced in Holland and immortalized in the 1632 painting of Rembrandt, "The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp."

Volunteers will help direct audience members to our site-specific location in the Neuropsychiatric Institute at UIC, 912 S. Wood, and will help seat audience members and pass out programs. Volunteers will get to see the show for FREE.

Please contact Sarah at sarah@localinfinities.com for more information.

Links Hall seeks proposals for site-specific work inside moving vehicles
Links Hall and Seep request proposals for site-specific work inside moving vehicles. Artists may be drivers, passengers, or instigators who are outside the car. Links Hall will serve as a taxi stand from which audiences can catch rides to experience each piece, but the real location will be both inside the car and simultaneously anywhere within driving distance.

Barat Graduate 2002

I am new to this community and I was hoping to find people on here that I went to college with at Barat. I graduated in 2002. I was at Barat from 2000 to 2002 with a CIS degree.
Along the lines of finding people I went to school with, I was also interested in what career paths people have now that they have graduated?
I was also curious if Barat is closing? I have not heard anything for awhile. I hope they keep it open. The atmosphere was so awesome there.

As the schoolyear draws to a close, I want to make myself cry. So here it goes:

What's your favorite Barat memory?

Anything you won't miss?

Russian classes

I have kinda of a weird question. Anyway I go to Loyola University but they don't offer Russian classes which is just one of the things wrong with the university. Anyway I know that Depaul offers Russian classes and I was wondering if I could just take one class at DePaul. I would still be a full-time student at Loyola, but also take a class at DePaul. I know it costs around 400/credit so I don't know if its worth it. I probably couldnt get financial aid if I only take 3 credits. Anyway anyone else have any ideas apart from transfering to Depaul. thanks

Prompted by a recent discussion on the merits of one Dr. Layne Morsch, I think this would be a fitting time to ask that question which has plagued mankind through the ages:

Who is Barat's sexiest faculty member?

Go. Extra points for pictures.

Hi… My name is Laura and I’m here to do something I was given advise to do… Basically, ask for help… I am in a position as a new mother and as much as I love my daughter with every part of my heart, it’s obvious that it would have been better for her and I if I would have waited. Aside of my beautiful daughter, the father was obviously someone special enough to me for me to move in with him (in which the baby was conceived) back a couple years ago when I was lonely, depressed, and brainwashed that no one would ever love me – I had just gotten out of an abusive relationship with a very cruel guy. After living with my daughter’s father for sometime, I became pregnant. Although he was happy about becoming a father, he had and still has emotional/mental problems. Back then he was hanging out with “the wrong crowd” who were the kind of guys that are extremely manipulative instigators. By him hanging out with these people, it took a nasty turn one day and I was left home alone at the apartment (pregnant) and throwing up and crying all night and he never came home. He is not the kind of person to do that so I was so extremely terrified and upset. It turns out he was out with his friends taking so many pills, he didn’t even know who he was anymore, literally. It’s not like him at all to even do drugs in the first place. He ended up going to jail and my life was a mess not knowing what was going to happen. Since he was in jail and not going to work, we had no money to pay the apartment bills and I couldn’t have a job because I had such horrible morning sickness and I was anemic in my first trimester. To make an extremely long story short, we ended up getting evicted and now we owe the apartment $5,000 for ridiculous left and right charges covering every part of the eviction or else we have to go to court and get a lawsuit and what not…

I’ve always tried to be as independent as possible. Independent to the point I try so hard to make others happy and put myself last, and all I do is go and go and go using so much energy to do what’s right, I end up just breaking down from stress. Because I am the kind of person who tries so hard to be independent, I could never swallow my pride to ask for help from other people. I was talking to a friend the other day who gave me the advise to just swallow my pride for once and ask for help from people who seem to reach out to others.

I don’t know if I’m wasting my time and I do feel kind of dumb asking strangers for help but I decided to at least give it a try for what it’s worth. If there’s anyone out there who wouldn’t mind helping me in anyway – I don’t even know what specific type of help I’m asking for – please e-mail me at gtarpley88@yahoo.com.

Also, please do not feel bad in any way if you decide you are unable to help me out... For even taking the time to read this, means a lot. Thanks.
