Need Help With Interactive Performances

Postby rongo » Mon Apr 16, 2018 3:55 pm

I'm working on a camp based on interactive performances and I could use some collaboration.

What I need:
Someone with interest in interactive performances (think improv) who can help me test my rough scripts (and figure out how to write a script that isn't really a script).

What I really want:
Someone enthusiastic about interactive acting in the South Bay Area who has a ticket to burning man and wants to help make our interactive camp a huge success.

I know I'm being a bit vague here but I don't want people to come to us and say "oh, yeah, I heard about you guys" (as if): I want it to be a surprising experience. I actually have a specific plan which I will happily share with interested burners.

Please contact me, "rongo" on eplaya and I'll get the message.

Thanks

Rongo!

Ha ha ha!
First off, it's quality, not quantity that counts and you're here so we're good.

Second, if you have questions about this post, feel free to ask in private. I'm happy to answer.

Let me try with a slightly less subtle hint ...


“I have this fantastic idea for the most awesome thing ever for Burning Man but am a total slacker and want someone else to do it for me, but I get all the super trendy fame and credit for being good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it people like me!”

... now that we got that out of the way, what was your question and request for help?

Token, you're just trolling.

Go find something useful to do. Like, perhaps, create something interesting for Burning Man 2018. Like, for example, I'm trying to do...

Hi, rongo.

I'm a theatre/music/improv person.

I have many playa commitments and a camp already, but I'm curious about your project.

Mostly, I'm confused about the 'script', since improv uses only prompts.

Can you tell us a bit more about your idea?

Moderator's note: Moved to art and performance as that is a better fit than building camps, which is about infrastructure and planning.

Note to Rongo, you do realize you are complaining about performance art on a post asking others to interact and participate in performance art?

No I had not noticed, but agree and love the irony of it.

I guess "everyone is a critic".

Thanks for the help.

That is pure gold funny.

Old farts like me with all these posts to back my name do not trawl the webs.

I’m serious, what the fuck is your top secret performance art idea?

You bring nothing to the conversation but expect folks to commit to it.

Why would anyone take you seriously?
