March is finally here, and as we know, one of the biggest events of the year is coming up!

The event, known as Cultural Outreach, is annually organized by Trent’s International Student Association (TISA), and showcases cultural performances from all over the world exhibiting the true talent and diversity of Trent’s student community.

Cultural Outreach will be taking place on Saturday, March 19 at 2p.m., and 7p.m. at the Showplace Performance Centre.

This year’s theme will be The Phantom of the Opera and the show will follow the Phantom’s quest around the world as he searches for an act for his new opera house.

Throughout his quest, he will encounter a diversity of cultural performances, powerful and emotional, and fascinating in their own way. 

A diversity of cultures will be represented, as performers will be dancing to Afro-Caribbean mixes, Salsa and Bachata, Soka, Bhangra and Bollywood, as well as traditional Venezuelan, Malaysian, and Russian songs.

Singers, spoken-words, tap dancers, and fiddle players will enhance the diversity of performances and finally, the presence of the Phantom will make it an engaging and entertaining show.

Which act will the Phantom choose?

This, you will have to find out by yourself, as we are inviting you to join us on March 19t at the Showplace Performance Centre. Tickets will be $20 each and $10 for children under 12. The after-party (19+), taking place at the Oxford Club, is free for those who attended the performance, and a mix of international music will be played throughout the night.

My name is Kristina Dergacheva. I am an international student from Russia. Currently I am studying politics and economics, because I am very passionate about them. We can see many different issues around the world, I hope that one day I could help to solve them. Also, I am trying to be very active in my every-day life. I am president of Trent University Russian Speaking Association. We are trying to be very cheerful and make many fun events. Furthermore, I am trying to be involved in Canadian politics. I am a part of Trent University Politics Society. We have different symposiums and debates, which could help you to actually love politics. As for my personal life, I am 19 years old. My parents and little brother lives in Russia, so I miss them much. However, here in Canada I do have many important people for me, so I never feel lonely. I really enjoy writing and I am very pleased with the fact that I am able to write for such an awesome newspaper as Arthur! It's an amazing experience, and I hope in the closest future I would be able to write some more nice stories for it.
