Dear friends,

 In 2012 Aluna Theatre embarks on our most ambitious project to date, RUTAS PANAMERICANAS / PANAMERICAN ROUTES, a new Festival of Theatre for Human Rights: MAY 15 – 27, 2012.

We need your help and support to make this event a success.

We invite you to join us on February 10th at our Latin Love Valentine Celebration for an evening of salsa, swing, music, and great prizes.

This is how the evening will work:

Three couples from three dance schools will give a demonstration in each style of salsa (Casineros Unidos), swing (Bees’ Knees Dance) and bachata (P.O.S.E Dance Company). Then the competition begins! You’ll be given an opportunity to “dance up a storm” in each style. Improve your chances of winning by snagging a private lesson with one of our professional dancers.

We will be serving delicious Latin American finger food, and the cash bar will be open throughout the event.

The evening will be hosted by the beautiful drag queen “Dyna Thirst”, with music by our awesome DJ, NOLOVES.

 Here’s what you need to know:

 WHEN:                 February 10, 2012

WHERE:               Lambadina Club at 875 Bloor West (at Ossington Subway Station)

TIME:                   7:30-11 p.m.  Arrive by 8pm to receive your complimentary Latin Lover cocktail!

                           *You can request a $20 tax receipt with each ticket you purchase

 All tickets are automatically entered in the raffle to win a romantic evening for two at the Fairmount Royal York Hotel. But if you don’t win the door prize, don’t fret! We’ll be selling raffle tickets for a great selection of additional prizes, like festival passes to the Panamerican Routes Festival, dinner for two at Zocalo and many more.

 If you buy two tickets under your company/project name you will be entered to win 24 hours of free rehearsal space at the Aluna Theatre Macondo Studio, so be sure to identify yourself when you purchase your tickets.

ALSO ON THE GO AT ALUNA THEATRE…

Aluna Cafe

 After an incredibly successful inaugural Aluna Cafe, we invite you to join us for the 2nd edition this Monday, January the 30th, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. (Free entry)

We will be reading Paper Flowers by Chilean playwright Egon Wolff. One of the most important figures in Latin American drama, Wolff modernized Chilean theatre with his avant-garde sensibility and acute awareness of life’s absurdities. Emerging from the experimental theatre movement in Santiago in the 1940s, he went on to become the best-known Chilean dramatist of the 20th century. 

Our Aluna Café is a spontaneous, thought-provoking exploration of art where anyone can be the critic. It’s also the first step into a wonderful intercultural adventure that will broaden our horizons.

 The reading will take place at Aluna’s Macondo studio: 1 Wiltshire Ave., studio 128.

Lo invitamos a nuestra segunda sesión de esta serie el próximo lunes, 30 de enero de 2012, a las 7:00pm (entrada gratuita).

 Leeremos la obra Paper Flowers del dramaturgo chileno Egon Wolff, una de las figuras más importantes del teatro latinoamericano. Su obra es resultado del movimiento de teatro experi
mental en Santiago en los cuarenta, y lo convierte así en el dramaturgo chileno mejor conocido del siglo XX.

 La lectura tendrá lugar en el estudio Macondo de Aluna: 1 Wiltshire Ave., studio 128
