Union Chapel gigs.
« on: August 04, 2009, 02:46:06 PM »

Okay, so. I know that the puppet stuff is happening in Edinburgh and some people might want to do some of that at the Union Chapel gigs as well, but I've also read a few posts and spoken to a few people who wouldn't mind doing something else.
It's not super close but it's not exactly far off either right now, so maybe it's time to start thinking about it if you are up for something different.
Any ideas/thoughts/comments/etc.?
I know there have already been a few, so if you remember them...post here, I guess.

FOR THOSE UNSURE OF WHAT THEY CAN DO (BRIGADING-WISE)
Firstly Amandas tips: Brigading FAQ
http://www.theshadowbox.net/forum/index.php?topic=3720.0

and my personal experiences with the brigade...for those who like TL:DR

Acts/things people have done for their first act in the past

Statues (living, dead, semi moving stonelook or clothed)


Clockworks: coin operated things, wind up things eg jewellery box girl


Marionettes


Harlequins and clowns: The best Ive seen being Raliel and Iris :) at the roundhouse and I once did an interraction/clown for fringe medicating afp fans


Stiltwalkers: various costumes from classic look to gasmasks to a Stiltwalking elephant


Human Cavases:- easy and fun for the audience/amanda:- paint and partial nudity.


Jugglers: Khufu did really cool UV juggling with a creepy doll mask, also fire juggling/spinning (venue/front of house permitting)


Musicians: anything goes really, if you play something come along, even better if you can get together as a group stairway orchestra or bathroom organgrinder


Burlesque acts:- eg Fandances lol ( yeah I know Cho aint brigade but it was still funny)


Interpretive dance (probably got the description wrong Emilie sorry)


Roaming interractive Strange and wonderous things.


Also, Many make homemade treats for the audience and deliver them out in costume during the queuing and at any intervals
or just giving the audience instruments and asking them to sing dolls songs blah de blah basically anything goes

videos that you could get inspiration from: someone tell me how to embed here :)

Paradise DVD: day in the life (bits with brigade prep and interviews with US brigade and Marie/Emilie Bera
Roundhouse extras: Bit of brigade in there too.

and when I find them ill embed some of dbbogs brigading videos as they record most of the shows

it'd be nice to do something different, i think doing the same thing over and over gets a little uninspired; this'd be a nice chance for everyone to show off their creativity

I'll be there both nights as well. Not entirely sure what I'll be doing yet but I do like the idea of doing something different to Edinburgh.
The living painting idea is pretty cool. Would I maybe be able to join you in that, Johnny? It's totally cool if you've got it planned already, though.
omg maybe i can dress up as a glow stick!!! hehehehe or not.

I can't help much as I have a friend to look after but I'd love to help in any way I can despite that.

Rach, I'm sure there would be something you can do. It makes me sad that you feel you can't... :(
Lucy, if you want to do the living painting thing, I'll happily help you sort it out.
I'm still trying to come up with some ideas myself.
Meehhh.

THANKS! :) (although plain stealing would not be favourable... but it must be possible to think of something good now)

warm and wise and really rather wonderful

and even then i am not usually sure she is into me.  and if i find out she is, my first instinct is to cook for her and fetch her damn slippers.

Seeing as we aren't rigidly sticking to the puppet theme, is there another theme or is it just "anything goes"...?
