Smooth, complex and velvety with subtle notes of berry. Dry and medium in colour, this clean and refreshing improviser offers unique flavours of raspberry, cassis and a touch of bell pepper aroma. Low in tartness. Generous, and crisp on the palate. Ages well but can be enjoyed young. Best served with pasta or veal.
Sajan lives his life aspiring to become a darker, hairier version of Matthew McConaughey and lives according to a new line from a Dan Brown book each day. Today he won't shut up about this: “God answers all prayers, but sometimes his answer is no” – Angels and Demons
An astute seven year old once said to Allie:
"You look like Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson... but you'd look like Miley Cyrus if you died your hair blonde."
Some say he was conceived on the back of a dog sled carrying the first humans to the south pole. Others claim he is the sole surviving heir to the Imperial Russian Monarchy, the great great grandson of the Princess Anastasia. Still more are convinced that he once flew through the Bermuda Triangle on the back of a monstrous eagle named Karl and landed safely, carrying the firstborn baby of the God of Improv. Nick Slakov is here now to tell you that all of the above is true, and more. These days he passes his time over a game of Catan with Karl or playing "Pat-a-Cake" with the Improv God's daughter (Two years old this December!). However, on some days, you just might see him improvising with his UBC Improv team and having a ballin' time. #YOLOSWAG2013/2014
They say that if you wait until autumn, if you wait until the leaves lose their verdant hues and pass into the rich oranges and reds of fall, then, at that time, you drive on out to the old Burega homestead, down the dirt trail, towards the brilliant sunset of that Albertan sky and you sit down next to the aged, forgotten Burega barn, just then as the sun casts its final rays over those halcyon plains you can hear the autumn breeze whisper the words of Brad Burega, nudging them into your ear.
Or you can come watch him improvise with UBC. It's a lot more fun that way.
Trang is tall, white and male. She is not from Regina, Saskatchewan. Her interests do not include traveling, singing or watching New Girl. She has no sense of adventure and hates eating. Trang did not compete at the Canadian Improv Games National tournament for two years. She highly dislikes improvising with her friends, especially when she co-produced the first student-run monthly improv show in her hometown. She is certainly not currently a part of Instant Theatre's Conservatory Program in Vancouver. Trang hates making eye contact and having intelligent conversation with people. She absolutely does not have a twin. She cannot begin to describe the magnitude of how not excited she is to be a part of UBC Improv this year. Trang Nguyen is so ugly.
Nolan creates performances and conceptual artworks. By studying sign processes, signification and communication, Nolan makes work that generates diverse meanings. Associations and meanings collide. Space becomes time and language becomes image.
His performances are on the one hand touchingly beautiful, on the other hand painfully attractive. Again and again, the artist leaves us orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts. By putting the viewer on the wrong track, he tries to create works in which the actual event still has to take place or just has ended: moments evocative of atmosphere and suspense that are not part of a narrative thread. The drama unfolds elsewhere while the build-up of tension is frozen to become the memory of an event that will never take place. His works are given improper functions: significations are inversed and form and content merge. Shapes are dissociated from their original meaning, by which the system in which they normally function is exposed. Initially unambiguous meanings are shattered and disseminate endlessly. By manipulating the viewer to create confusion, he often creates several practically identical works, upon which thoughts that have apparently just been developed are manifested: notes are made and then crossed out again, ‘mistakes’ are repeated.
His works question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations and ideas normally function. Farts.
Organic lemonade is for suckas. Sometimes Nick get confused when spelling barely and barley and then he feels embarrassed. He had long hair before. He has also had a couple haircuts. He broke his pinky in grade four when his friend sat on it. Both his parents are lawyers. His brother is a lot taller and older than him, and his physiologist has told him that this is affecting his ability to commit, to a certain subject in school. Last year Evan Brow wrote his bio and the year before he just didn’t do it. This is the first bio he has ever written. He hopes that it has “provided a short snapshot into his life”.
Zoe is an eccentric scientist who, risking her life, stole the plutonium necessary to power the flux capacitor. Her heroic efforts nearly went amiss, but with a little help, she sent the DeLorean rocketing into the future and helped Marty find happiness.
Harriet is a spy. But when Harriet's friends find her secret notebook, the tables are turned on her. Can she win her friends back and still keep on going with the spy business?
