It’s that time again when SouthWesterners get to turn their dreams into reality by signing up to perform at Science Showoff on the Grain Barge! (YES, IT’S STILL ON A BOAT. We are totally climate-change proof.)
On the evening of June 28th, 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: just put together 9 minutes of performance for us.
We have an incredibly welcoming and encouraging audience of around 100 paying punters, a comedian compere to hold it all together, 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 would really love to have more different kinds of performance, and when we say anyone is welcome, we mean it. Scientists, yes, but also students, actors, film makers, bands, sociologists of science, visual, mimes, playwrights, talented non-human animals, circus performers: go for it. Science belongs to you all as well.
Sign up here: https://doodle.com/poll/teunz7svnut44abg 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.
