Tiny Dangerous Fun in NY seeks performers
Come out to the land of porches and tall trees this summer for an evening of big-top risks in the basement of a bar/flowershop. Each month a handful of clowns, burlesque performers, puppeteers, acrobats, musicians, and/or ??? will perform their ballyhoo in the bar’s bowels for 40 or so lucky patrons who got there in time to get a seat. For the audience goer who wants it intimate and hilarious, Tiny, Dangerous, Fun will knock yer socks off.
1118 Cortelyou Rd. at Westminster Road
Brooklyn, NY (Q train to Cortelyou)
$10 at the door
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.
