Some of our members are working with the Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette Playwrights to bring you a 10-minute play festival this June 21st and 22nd.
There is an open call for submissions. All plays are due by April 10th. Feel free to submit early and often to 10minute[a]themediacollective.org
We will also be holding some 10-minute play workshops. Please check the Civic Theatre newsletter and this web site for more information.
Spread the word and tell a friend. Social media helps, too.
The first of many fluxus workshops deals with the event score; markings on paper articulating theatre.
A sample event score we used previously would be as follows:
Kite String Tangle – (TJ)
- Needed: String, buttons
- Cue: Hand someone string: “Keep this taut”
- Tie kite string to various parts of Foam City, leaving ends loose tied to buttons / Throughout the evening, hand strings to people / Get them to shuffle seats / Tangle / Cut free
If we deconstruct this particular format, we are left with:
- Necessary items, props, materials, concepts, etc.
- How to initiate this particular event score.
- An abstract of the event score using descriptive verbs.
When you write your event scores, don’t forget these elements. Refer to this page if necessary. Bookmark it now. Like it. Tweet it. Staple it. Never feel ashamed due to lack of memory.
Want to verbally express your theatrical contribution? Give us a call at 312-DRY-TOFU. It’s a voicemail art line. Call day or night.

We are encouraging the greater Lafayette area to write and submit event scores again. Start yours today!
We also need artists and non-artists of all sorts, working in a variety of mediums: noise, painting, drawing, sculpture, poetry, printmaking, digital graphics, architecture, ceramics, etc.
Most of all, we are here to make theatre in its purest form; the spectacle.
Join us for fLUXUS FOAM this summer.
If you would like to be kept in the loop regarding our fluxus workshops, please contact us.
You There! is a structured, extemporaneous theatre experiment. We take the knowledge of Dan Goldstein, grind it to a pulp with the futurist synthetic theatre, and cook the result in a searing pan of Safire. It’s delicious, satisfying, and best of all, healthy.
Want to help in the kitchen? Contact us.
