Tours Officer Election
.Chris is already involved with Edinburgh – will shadow Emma.
.Local to Southampton – awareness of local festivals – ie, Brighton Fringe, Winchester Festival.
.Chris is in a BAND!!! – Already going on tour to Exeter and Kent – he is cool.
.Organised and good at talking to people.
.Has fancy smartphone for organisation!
.He feels it would be fun to be on committee and would work really hard. Aoife: Would you run for Gone Rogue on top? Yes, he probably would.
Joe: Have you been to the Edinburgh Fringe before? No.
Will: Often other festivals, ie, Brighton, often clash with exams. Do you have any ideas as to how you’d get around an issue like that/would you take one show to tour everywhere? Chris would see if there was a small enough show to take up even if it was during exams. He knows about Brighton Fringe – you can just be online or go up for a short time. He likes the idea of one show – already have reviews. But audition process would have to start a lot sooner. Chris is Tours Officer! Discussion of PA show Do we think it is beneficial to TG?
.Not really but this could be because of our approach. Difficult for TG because theatre is difficult to be put in a variety show with short time slots. Sometimes clashes with independent show. No time for originality (reproduction of old Showcase pieces is the norm) and there still isn’t collaboration as much collaboration because pieces are performed separately by societies.
Did our society enjoy it?
Yes but we’d like some variation – experimental new ideas.
Is it better to keep something that ressembles the current form or create something more liberal?
.Potentially make it less of a large show – could pair up two societies for fun and to create collaboration-make time slots longer.
.Idea of festival – walking audience – no focus on performance.
.Perhaps a 24 hour show in the Stag’s for all PA societies – rather than a large show, a scaled down raw version – take away society aspect, everyone is just under the PA umbrella – take the opportunity to do something smaller.
.Idea of a weeklong performing arts festival – different venues ie, Stag’s, Bridge, Cube, Bar 2.
.Turn it into a large social barbecue with inclusive workshops and drama games – involve other members of PA – share WHAT WE DO and have a GOOD TIME rather than a full scale show.
.Tone should shift to create collaboration – ie, dance societies teaching theatre societies to do simple dances – passersby are able to join in – PA DAY! ‘Keeping Down with the Joneses’ Update .Speak to CMT about being able to buy tickets through the box office.
