dra­matique, the new cre­ation by Hélène Black­burn and Pierre Le­cours, is a mor­dant look at the myth­i­cal cou­ple of Romeo and Juli­ette. Their adap­ta­tion draws from Wil­liam Shake­speare’s ro­man­tic master­piece to evoke no­tions of se­duc­tion, de­sire, un­chained pas­sion, and death.

In this highly con­tem­po­rary ver­sion, eight of the company’s dancers present a vi­brant homage to the orig­i­nal tale tinged with im­petu­ous­ness and con­ta­gious en­ergy. Prokofiev, Tchaïkovski, Gounod and many oth­ers con­verse in the form of a sound­track by com­poser and sam­pler Martin Tétreault, who puts a unique spin on the mu­sic in­spired by this tragedy.

cont'd from page 6 lion gift from the stu­dents who voted in a ref­er­en­dum to support the Learn­ing Com­mons project. ‘‘I want to thank all of our stu­dents for their belief in this project and in our Univer­sity,” he said. “One of the re­mark­able as­pects of this gift is that most of our stu­dent donors will not be here to ben­e­fit from this new fa­cil­ity. As the ex­pres­sion goes: they are pay­ing it for­ward.”

The third com­po­nent of the Cam­paign is fo­cused on the Wil­liams School of Business. The Univer­sity wishes to in­te­grate the Dob­son-La­gassé Cen­tre into the Wil­liams School of Business build­ing and to se­cure the funds re­quired to cover the op­er­at­ing costs of the Dob­son-La­gassé Cen­tre, which is an in­de­pen­dent en­tity that fo­cuses on en­trepreneur­ship. Th­ese projects and other in­vest­ments in the WSB to­tal an es­ti­mated $7.5 mil­lion.

Fi­nally, Mr. Gold­bloom spoke of in­vest­ments in the Univer­sity’s aca­demic pro­grams and the ar­ray of fi­nan­cial aid and award pro­grams which ben­e­fit ap­prox­i­mately one-third of Bishop’s stu­dents. The Univer­sity aims to raise $10 mil­lion for th­ese ini­tia­tives.

Mr. Gold­bloom noted that a high per­cent­age of fac­ulty, staff and mem­bers of the Univer­sity’s Board of Gover­nors have al­ready made con­tri­bu­tions to the cam­paign.

The Univer­sity’s goal is to raise the re­main­ing $10 mil­lion by the end of 2016.
