many have been wondering and asking what the state of the brigade is for the solo shows.
do not worry, we have plans up the ass. may i introduce to you....
Mr. Steven Mitchell Wright of the Danger Ensemble.
Steven and his talented australian cohorts are going to be touring with me ALL YEAR in the states and europe.
the show i'm taking on the road is VERY theatrical, much more stage action than a dolls show, and we definitely need help.
steven and i are so so sO SO EXCITED about our plans for this year, we're practically exploding.
come do with,
So without giving too much away.. Amanda is dead right? So we should show our respects the best way we know how – with ART. We are looking for a heap of performers to be involved in each city we do the show in!
We need to create a funeral – it's up to you what kind of character you are at the funeral but we need to create something really beautiful.. We also need a funeral co-ordinator – someone who might like to be a main point of contact for the brigade and performers on the day of the show and to guide the performance - We want you to jam on what the funeral might be.. from what culture – what happens at it? Is there a choir? Flowers? Doves? Goldfish? Are they all ghosts? Are they swaying? Is Avril there showing her respects? There WILL be um-ber-ella's!
I really don't want to give everything away on here but if you are interested in being a performer at the shows – send me an email email@example.com
with the subject like: PERFORMER : and the name of the city you wanna get freaky in. In the email let me know a bit about you, your experience (if any.. not essential!) and if there's any role that you feel drawn to.. think you might have a good costume or props for.. you can email me as a representative for a group of people. If you're on the shadowbox jam out and come up with some ideas and then hit me up..
If you don't want to perform but want to contribute.. can always just bring along some flowers or some other tribute to leave outside or at the memorial table – art, cupcakes, things Amanda would like in the afterlife with her..
Look forward to hearing from you and meeting y'all on the road.
*and there is also a post somewhere that speaks very clearly about why they can't be letting the brigade in for free on the solo tour...and why they are changing the format and having the brigade be a bit more independent.
I don't understand why art can't just be art for art's sake. yes getting into shows free is nice but it should not be expected and/or taken for granted...change can be a good thing and i like it when my favorite artists can pay rent and eat...
