FOR POTENTIAL PERFORMERS (July & August)

Tiny, Dangerous, Fun seeks clowns, burlesque performers, puppeteers, acrobats, freaks, comedians, musicians, and/or short film makers with ten minutes of material to be presented in one ten minute chunk or two smaller 5 minute chunks (or three three minute chunks?)

The material should be-

tiny: the stage is eight feet wide and four feet deep and just over 6 feet tall. If you jump, you’ll hit your head. Only about four people can fit on the stage (if they’re not moving).

dangerous: we’re seeking work that takes physical, emotional, social and/or spiritual risks, (no fire, sorry). As there is only room for about forty people it will be extremely intimate.

fun: All of the above-small, risky, yaddayadda, plus it’s gotta be FUN. No self indulgent performance art. No just-for-the-sake-of-pissing-us-off shock value- unless you manage to make us LOVE being pissed off.

What you get:

a percentage of what we bring in at the door and two drink tickets per performer.
