The Gas Heart Directed by Rayssa Kanso

October 27, 2010

LAU student Rayssa Kanso (www.twitter.com/rayssaka) is putting on her theatre production (The Gas Heart written by Tristan Tzara) on November 30, 2010 at 6:00 pm in Irwin Theatre at LAU’s Beirut Campus. Rehearsals started a few days ago and we’re still in the process of reading and writing.

I am currently in the rehearsals room and we just took a break after reading the text and discussing it a bit; I still don’t know what I do in the play whether I’m acting or helping out backstage but I’m enjoying the rehearsals, the text is very interesting but also weird and pretty vague which is cool..we’re exploring it as much as we can so we can start with the blocking, characterization and so on in the coming two weeks..

Follow my tweets (www.twitter.com/karimbekdache) for updates about the rehearsals period as well as general info about the performance..Facebook event will be created soon..

Maya Zankoul During Her Presentation

Last Thursday graphic designer Maya Zankoul visited our new media class and shared her experience in blogging and tweeting.

What was so nice is that she uploaded her latest blog post http://mayazankoul.com/2010/03/18/a-miracle-at-lebanese-banks/¬†live in front of us and we saw what she does after posting it..checking out comments, “likes” on facebook..basically feedback on that post which were surprisingly quick!! I loved it..

Not that I needed it, but it was real proof that once you establish yourself online you gain a lot of “followers” as they say in “Twitterish” which makes you more motivated to keep updating your blog, twitter status…

I loved that session of #lausocial and I loved Maya’s work!

Visit www.mayazankoul.com to understand what I’m talking about and follow¬†@mayazankoul on twitter for her latest updates!

Can’t wait for the next guest…

Tweetdeck has this cool way to add columns of things you specifically want to see..I added a “search of lausocial” column and @aymanitani’s lausocial list..
