Alright, I'mma spare the "lead-in" bull-sha-cocky and hit you with the straight facts...
~The DDolls play in Houston on May 30th (2 weeks away!!
~I want to brigade, as does my sister & possibly a male friend
~I have 2 tickets (so "brigaders-get-in-free" might be a very nice perk)
~I have official
comformation that there are brigade spots open for the show
~We are all "brigade virgins" but pretty well versed in performance art (2 poetry slam vetrans & one theatre major)
What we've got to work with:
--awesome creative skills
--kick-ass poetry written by ourselves
--open and literary loving minds
--access to LOTS of thrift stores & decent funds
--a pair of black feather @ngel wings
of time on our hands/open schedules
(we're all servers/bartenders and not in school this summer)
Ideas my sister and I have come up with so far:
... but read
~A pantomined version of the story of Faust vs/making a deal with the devil... (think that one scene in Tombstone
where they're in the theatre watching the vaudeville show with the woman dressed up as a man dressed up as the devil)... while we haven't actually sat down and blocked out/choregraphed this yet, we're both pretty well versed in the story... and my sister really wants to wear the black wings
~A tarot/fortune teller table... w/ a bust of a person sticking out in the middle of the table... (kinda like http://www.makeupbyjulie.com/livingtables.htm
... this living statue co. is amazing!) Seeing as we only have 2 weeks, it'd be fairly possible to construct a wearable table-ish apparatus.... but mayhaps we don't want to push things?
~"Give-aways" seem to be popular (and I am a big fan) so we were thinking ripped pages/phrases/quotes from books (think: myths, poetry, lyrics, maybe even *gasp* scripture), runes of "good fortune" & the like (I'm pagan/spiritual, so fairly familiar with these), folded oragami shooting stars w/ phrases/etc, and... my personal favorite, con-dams.
Um, hit me up on what you think guys... knowing that these are fairly vague ideas so far... hopefully with you're brainstorming/hints and our brainstorming we can have something solid to e-mail off for approval by the end of this week?
!Viva la brigade!
