International students host Ethnos culture show, Nov. 12-13

Posted November 12, 2010

ACU's International Students' Association (ISA) brings the community a taste of the diversity represented on campus with the annual Ethnos culture show. This year's theme is "Global News."

The show features 13 dance acts that take viewers on a journey around the world. ISA puts on the culture show every fall semester - the largest production staged by the inclusive social group.

"The culture show provides an opportunity for international and American students to showcase their cultures," says Sebastian Karlsson, president of ISA. "It is a great way to get to know more people on campus, and we hope that Ethnos will be something that brings the student body and the Abilene community together."

ISA students have been rehearsing since early October for the show, which will be performed Friday, Nov. 12, and Saturday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in Cullen Auditorium. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the show.

"The production means a lot to ISA since it is our biggest event," says Karlsson. "I hope the people who attend will experience a glimpse of different cultures throughout the world, and that it will bless their understanding of worlds and cultures far removed from our own."

Ethnos tickets will be sold through Friday, Nov. 12, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Tickets are $5 for general admission and $3 for students who present a student I.D. card.
