|Mom brag alert! I know many of you out there have kids and are damn proud of them, just like me. I share the joys and sorrows right along with you, because I too am a proud mom! I shared an email this morning with one of my newer bog pals, whose child has similar film related things going on.|
Wesley has bee nominated by the UNCSA faculty recently for several amazing opportunities, and we have fingers crossed while we wait to hear if she is accepted. I'll let you know!
One of them I can share. The faculty selected 50 students from all disci[lines at the school to participate in the Kenan Institute's Cirkus project. She is the one of two film students participating, the rest are dancers, musicians, and production and design students. She is on a team of five and will work this year to create a performance for submission to the Cirque du Soliell jury. WGBH in Boston is also collaborating on this and documenting the entire process. I am so excited for Wes, these are such great experiences to learn and grow from and I am so proud of her for being chosen by this very amazing faculty that teaches at UNCSA.
Please send up some prayers to the Universe for her other submissions!!!!! Hopefully she will get some good news soooooo!
Very proud of you, Wesley, xoxo
A collaboration with the UNCSA School of Design and Production and Cirque du Soleil to develop student-driven creative performances for jury by representatives of Cirque du Soleil. Several small teams of final-year UNCSA students will each create an 'act' of original creative work. In the summer following graduation, these students become Cirkus Theatre Resident Artists employed by UNCSA to rehearse and stage the acts for an invited audience and for a jury from Cirque du Soleil.
