International Night 2017
Each year, AIS hosts the International Night; an event where students from every country or region represented in TU performs on stage to show a piece of their history and culture. We have seen students go out of their way to channel their cultural pride into amazing and creative performances. There has been everything from dancing to immersive theatrical productions.
International Night 2017 will be held on Saturday, April 8 at 6pm in the Gussman Hall of Lorton Performance Center.
Choose any icon or famous person from your country or region.
Tell their life story or significant point of their life in the most creative way.
The time limit for the performance is strictly 7 minutes.
Awards will be given to the best three performances.
Criteria for the awards include but not limited to creativity, innovation, and clarity of story line.
Performance that exceeds 7 minutes may be disqualified for awards.

DID YOU KNOW?
The title for last year's International Night was Legends of the Earth. 'Twas the night when legends and folklores from all over the world was told in dance, music, comedy, and immersive theatrical experience. The event was an important moment in AIS history of 42 years—it was the first time we incorporated a theme in International Night. Check out the photos!
