If you haven’t had the fortune of seeing a performance by the student-run modern dance troupe, MOD, your life is not yet complete. Luckily, you have the chance to remedy that by attending their fifth-annual end of the year showcase. The lobby is open at 4:30 p.m. with snacks and a silent auction open to keep you interested, and the show starts at 5:30 p.m. Modern dance is expressive and cultured, so it’s a great date night idea and an excellent study break.

Slamming Sexism//Illuminating Inequality
Mercury Room (10575 114 Street)
Sunday, Mar 29 at 7:00 p.m.
$10 at the door

It’s 2015 and everyday sexism still exists in Canada. Bring light to the gender inequalities that all sexes face with a night of improv groups and slam poetry. Expect to leave a better, more informed person since the welcoming atmosphere will foster conversation. The event is a project for Dr. Cristina Stasia’s WGS 201 class, so if you’re in that class it’s a requirement and you shouldn’t need a student newspaper to convince you to go anyway.
