Performers wanted for experimental theatre night

Cost: FREE

Organiser: Utter Rot And Poppycock

Performers wanted! Have you ever had a bat-shit crazy idea for a performance piece that’s part play, part stand up, part dance, part town hall crier? We want your 3-10 minute unusual acts for absurdist art house cabaret night Utter Rot & Poppycock on Thursday 9th January at the Bristol Improv Theatre. This is an experimental playground in a supportive environment, for you to try out something that has you excited. We’re specifically looking for eccentric ideas that you wouldn’t see at your average open mic — whether that’s a mix of music, sketch, improv, dance, puppetry, poetry, storytelling, character pieces or something we haven’t thought of. Did we mention that we love costumes?

Get in touch as soon as you have an idea, no matter how rough. If you’re unsure or only have an inkling of what you want to do, please get in touch and we will help guide you to your strangest heart’s desire. If you’re thinking “I’d love to do this but i’m not good or exciting enough”, then you should apply. A performers workshop is scheduled for December 8th to help you explore your ideas.
What’s in it for you? We are currently a donations event. With so many acts it doesn’t make sense to give each act a cut (which would be a couple of quid), so instead we have the night filmed so that you can have a video of your set in return.
Failure is your friend.
Interested in performing? Email us with your proposed idea by 5th December. Performers workshop 8th December.
