International Film: Red Dog 
Tuesday, March 5 at 7:00 PM
Lane University Center 111

Red Dog is based on the legendary, true story of an Australian sheepdog who united an isolated mining community while wandering the Australian outback in search of his master. This film takes place during the 1970s in Dampier, Western Australia, located about 950 miles north of Perth, 1650 miles southwest of Darwin, and 900 miles south of Jakarta, Indonesia. This very remote town was established in 1965 by

Iron to take advantage of the natural resources in the Pilbara region. Even today the population is only about 1500. This heartwarming film highlights the sparse and unique landscape of this craggy area, and what this brave dog must do to find his home again.

Lula Washington Dance
Wednesday, March 6 from 7:30 PM
Drama Theatre, Performing Arts Center
The beloved Los Angeles dance company, Lula Washington Dance Theatre, arrives for an evening of commanding, energetic and athletic performances. Lula Washington, who created choreography and movement for the Hollywood films "Avatar" and "The Little Mermaid," is a true original in the dance world. Her risk-taking endeavors draw attention to multiple social issues-from the plight of women to the extraordinary courage of U.S. soldiers. New York Times dance critic Jennifer Dunning states thst "Washington is an orginal, in part because of the concern for social issues that informs some of her dances and the gentle but persistent way she addresses those issues."
