Subject: Interstitial Theatre May Screening
Interstitial Theatre presents: “The City Projects” by Ryan Irilli and Liz Copland
Screening:Thursday, May 5th, 2011 at 8pm
1701 First Ave. South, Seattle
“The City Projects” is a series of animations that adds depth to the people of this world. It gives meaning to their existence and creates the sense of internal conflict. The first installment, which will be screening at Interstitial Theatre, is a letter from a lonely transplant of a major metropolis that desperately misses the familiarity of her rural hometown. She writes her reminisce to her dear brother back home, caring for his mother and tending to their land.
Ryan Irilli and Liz Copland’s work merges technology and computers with traditional sculpture and drawing. Since the onset, their method has been to focus on using materials to create miniature worlds in which stories take place. Stop motion animation brings these worlds to life, as painstaking as it may be, and captures the hand of the artist at work through every imperfect gesture. Irilli and Copland are graduates from the DXARTS program (Irilli) and the Ceramics program (Copland) at the University of Washington and are now based out of San Francisco.
Interstitial Theatre is an artist run project curated by Kira Burge and Julia Bruk , and features artists who are making relevant contemporary video art.
Interstitial Theatre’s May screening with Ryan Irilli on May 5th from 8-11pm
at RustiQue Studios, 1701 First Ave. South (3rd floor) in Seattle, WA.

Business Plan Competition
The UW Business Plan Competition is the marquee event for the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Washington Michael G. Foster School of Business. In the past thirteen years, the Business Plan Competition has successfully:
Can non-business students enter the competition?
Yes. The Business Plan Competition is open to ALL students who are currently enrolled in a degree program in the state of Washington.
If I don’t find any team members that really seem like “the right fit” during the Networking Nights, is it OK to have a “team” of just one person?
It is OK to have just one person on a team. However, if you advance to the Investment Round, you’ll want to add a few people to your team to help you pitch to judges.
Can we submit a business plan into the competition for a business that is or may become a nonprofit / social business in the future?
The competition is open to all types of businesses. Every year there are nonprofit or socially responsible businesses in the competition.
Is there a BPC archive that has a synopsis of the BPC plans submitted so far?
Yes, but you must come to CIE to look at it. Be sure to call or email the CIE Office to set-up a time.
Can a student submit plans for more than one team?
You are allowed to participate in the Business Plan Competition with more than one team. It can be a logistical challenge to do that at the Investment Round and Sweet 16, but it is possible.
Am I allowed to have a faculty member as a mentor for the BPC?
You can have a faculty member as a mentor. We’re also happy to try to pair you with a professional in the field who could coach and mentor you through the process. Note, it’s much more effective if you have an idea of who you would like to talk to more about your idea. Coming and simply asking for a mentor will make it challenging for you to find the right person. You should do research to find out who you want to talk to.
I am part of a company looking to recruit students to assist in taking my idea through the Business Plan Competition. How should I go about doing this?
Here are two ways to meet students:
Can I compete two years in a row?
Students are welcome and encouraged to participate as many times as they want – as long as they are a student (enrolled in a degree seeking program in Washington state) or have a student on their team.
Can I change the name of the business at some point during the competition?
You are allowed to change your company name during the competition. We recommend that you reference the name change in your documents (one-page executive summary or business plan).
Can I have more than 4 members on my team?
You can have as many people on your team as your like; there is no official limit. Most teams are 3-5 people, but you can do whatever makes the most sense for you. However, only four teammates can pitch at a time during the Investment Round. If you have more than four team members, you can tradeoff.
Is the list of judges for the Business Plan Competition available to the participants?
We don’t release our judge lists for any of the rounds.
Do judges or coaches usually sign NDAs (non-disclosure agreements)?
Judges and coaches do not sign NDAs. This is common practice in the entrepreneurial world, especially when you are pitching your idea to investors. You should figure out a way to talk about your business, but not give away the confidential information that could be patented, trademarked, or that is simply your secret sauce.

“THROUGH COLLISION” A show by Noah Grussgott, David Hollander and Ben Waterman
Something is learned both about a wall and about a cup by smashing them against each other. The trajectories of the shards, the dents, the lines of fracture. Sculpture is an aftermath of collision; a relationship the result of continued collisions. Sculpture is something to collide with. We are asking what is transferred, what results in collision between feeling and material, between material and feeling. Is anything passed directly or is it only the shock waves that permeate?
Where?: 3509 Fremont Ave N Seattle WA, 98103
NW corner of Fremont and 35th
When?: March 13, 7pm
Special Guests at the opening include: One West Hip Hop and NYC Subterranean (10pm)

If you still haven’t been to the BAM to see the exhibit by Tip Toland, you have a few weeks left! I was so impressed on my first trip, I had to return two more times to share it with friends and family. This is the kind of work that you have to see in person!
Tip Toland’s: MELT
“Much like life, Tip Toland’s work can be poetic, passionate, and now and again, unsettling. Her incredibly life-like sculptures – laboriously constructed of clay, stoneware, synthetic hair and paint – capture our bodies at their most vulnerable: naked, aging, exposed to the ravages of time and the elements. Yet at the heart of her work there is compassion, playfulness, and above all, acceptance of self.” (http://www.bellevuearts.org/exhibitions/current/tip_toland.htm)
