The members of the Diversity Awareness Committee (DAC) invite you to attend our monthly meeting, on Tuesday, November 10th from noon to 1:00 p.m., in the Cayuga Lake Meeting Room, and participate in a discussion on Microaggressions, facilitated by one of our committee members, RahK Lash, Assistant Director of Multicultural Affairs.

We study and learn from marginalized groups the extent and effects of oppression but, until recently, spend less time exploring privilege groups and how power is perpetuated. In this DAC meeting, we will briefly explore the framework of intersectional privilege. By completing a diversity awareness profile, attendees will be able to critically think about their own membership in social identity groups, investigate the true degree of their social justice promulgation, and draft a personal plan of action for ways in which they can promote the Platinum-Rule of social justice in their respective environments on our campus.

The Macabre Theatre Ensemble isn’t your typical student organization. At Ithaca College, with a world renowned theater program, the Macabre Theatre Ensemble shows a different side of performing arts. Audience members are engaged with the show, breaking down the fourth wall to become a part of the productions. In “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, the performers explore gender and sexuality wearing nothing but sexy undergarments as the cult classic plays in the background. By the end, the audience is doing the same.

Macabre Theatre Ensemble came to life in Spring 2012, taking over the cult phenomenon “Rocky Horror Picture Show” in Fall 2013, a task previously held by IC Players. The supernatural, horror-comedy, avant-garde experimental theatre found its home at IC, and now proudly features four major productions this Fall, beginning with the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” this Halloween weekend.
