Noise: Doberman – At Large in the City Bootleg – Foam City 2013-06-29

FoamCity-Locals Only-Poster-2013-06-29

Doberman. Loud. Noisy. Theatric. Shin splitting gravel sounds emitted through various amplifiers. The show opened with some found sound from an interview and then broke way to a larger cacophony of sounds, supplied by its diverse instrumentation.

In this locals-only show Wasps Masks, The Unusual Few, and the Gestalts also took the stage throughout the night for a fun, high energy, and loud, knock’em around show at Foam City.

Listen to the At Large in the City Bootleg:

Foam City, and other venues, should continue to support the local scene as much as they can.

You There!: (fLUXUS FOAM) Event Scores

Fluxus Foam Leave Event Score 2013-02-03b

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:

  • Title
  • 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.

Theatre: You There!

themediacollective.org-You There Theatre

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.

PS The poster was created as a collaborative endeavor by the Drawing Board.
