It’s the time of year when we celebrate rebels and iconoclasts – and so why not bring that spirit to science cabaret? On the balance of probability, you are unlikely to be burnt!
On Wednesday November 23rd, we are looking for performers to talk, dance, sing, demonstrate or generally make an exhibition of themselves about any aspect of any science. No experience necessary, first-timers and new ideas welcome: just put together 9 minutes of material for us. Signup here.
We have an incredibly supportive audience of around 50-100 paying punters, a science comedian compere, and all the money we raise goes to local small charities for whom the money makes a big difference.
You can see examples of previous acts on our Youtube channel, but just because you don’t see anything like your work there doesn’t mean it’s not welcome! We aspire to have a variety of performance and styles, and when we say anyone is welcome, we mean it. You’re welcome to discuss your ideas with us if you’d like: drop us a mail, or bug us on twitter.
Previously we have welcomed theatre about periods, rap about travelling to Proxima Centauri, dance expressing the formation of the first cells, and good old role-play as a hydrogen fuel cell. If you are: a science student or teacher, an actor or film maker, a band, a mime troupe, a circus performer or even a scientist with something to communicate about science, go for it.
Signup here: https://doodle.com/poll/e56ruagt4rd6hb9f and we’ll be in touch to tell you more about it. Laptop, microphone, and projector provided.
See you there!
