  Theatre Preview: Prepare to take flightPDF files may take a moment to load

Students working together can form a powerful force. Their work is passionate and selfless, driven by purer ideals than monetary successes. The U of C drama department's Taking Flight festival is a perfect example of this. Last year the entirely student run festival was a huge hit, not surprising considering it was constructed from the blood, sweat and tears of some of the most creative minds on campus. This year there are even higher expectations for this much anticipated theatrical collage.

There's an old adage at the Gauntlet saying: "no one really knows what to do with a music DVD."

To this day it has remained a mystery.

The University of Calgary skyline will be forever altered with the construction of the Campus Calgary Digital Library. The plan will see a number of existing campus services take up residence in a new $114 million building nearly as big as the existing library block.

April 1, 2006 marks the 40th anniversary of autonomy for the university of Calgary. Not surprisingly, the date also marks 40 years of student opposition to fee hikes, student debauchery and construction due to infrastructure shortages. The more things change, the more they stay the same. The following has been compiled from the Gauntlet's own 45-year archives

The Manitoba Underwater Council held their 37th Annual Underwater Football National Championship Mar. 18-19 in wonderfully windy Winnipeg. Although a national championship with four teams is as qualified as the World Series of baseball, Calgary still sent a team--dubbed the Calgary Coroners--to run the "nation."

  Dance Preview: The subject of debatePDF files may take a moment to load

What do a politician, Socrates and Zab Maboungou have in common? The answer is they all like to debate--how they choose to do it, on the other hand, is a bit different. Politicians and Socrates choose to convey their arguments through words, whereas dancer Maboungou chooses a different approach to debating. Maboungo's latest work Nsamu--which translates to "The Subject of Debate" in Kikongo--is an attempt to explain the concept of debate through contemporary African dance and live percussion music.
