Claude Magnier’s “Blaise” on Stage

Bilkent Department of Theater students are currently performing “Blaise,” a 20th-century French play (in Turkish translation). The production premiered on March 4 in the Faculty of Music and Performing Arts Building. The play, originally in three acts, is staged in two acts in this version. At the premier, the production favorably impressed the audience, thanks to the successful performances of the student actors and actresses.
“Blaise” is a comedy that deals with a universal theme: although people will do almost anything for wealth, in the end what really matters is love.
The play never loses its focus on this ethical dilemma, at the same time as it makes the audience laugh. It shows how, in the end, the purity that exists in each of us can overcome false values and unethical behavior, and that love can bring about this revolution.
Additional performances of this relevant and enjoyable play, performed by the young actors and actresses of the Department of Theater, will take place March 11-18 and April 1 and 15.

Bilkent Campaign Helps Diyarbakır School

Last month, Bilkent University Student Council and Kulüp Başkent joined forces to organize a campaign to assist a school in Diyarbakır's Bismil district. With the support of Bilkent University and the enthusiastic participation of its students and staff members, school supplies and equipment were collected at Bilkent on February 24. These included 96 student desks,
5 large desks, 2 boards, 15 boxes of books, 15 boxes of clothing, and sporting goods.
On February 25, the items were sent to Diyarbakır, and Bilkent Student Council President Ali Savcı, Kulüp Başkent Chairman Şeymus Arslan, and Student Council Vice-President Erkam Çömez, along with their friends Tanfer Türemen and İsmail Lekesiz, went to the school. There, the district governor and the school principal welcomed them, and the students eagerly accepted the materials.
The children's smiling faces were the greatest reward for the Bilkent students’ efforts. The school principal reflected that these students, like other students all over Turkey, want to be educated in order to become responsible citizens. This kind of campaign, therefore, contributes not only to a specific school, but to the future of Turkey as well.
Student Council and Kulüp Başkent are planning another campaign to collect school supplies for next month. Additional information will later be published in the Bilkent News.
