September is a time for new beginnings; a new term, a new lease of life as the kids go back to school, or maybe … a new way to convey your thoughts about science?
On Wednesday September 21st, 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. We haven’t chosen this month’s yet: got suggestions for a deserving cause? Let us know.
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.
Previously we have welcomed physical theatre, social-technical fusion, Star Trek with stripper shirts, and cake-based mimicry demos. 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/xi4wgwdd3kxtkb5z and we’ll be in touch to tell you more about it. Laptop, microphone, and projector provided: if you need other props or equipment, or have questions about performance, drop us a mail, or bug us on twitter.
See you there!
