BE PART OF REVIVING VARIETY FOR A NEW AUDIENCE!
We want to revive that great theatrical tradition where you chuck together a whole variety of acts from different genres and create an entertainment that leaves people inspired, laughing, crying, provoked, and above all enthused!
We will concentrate on providing opportunities for talent that can't get a break anywhere else. Aspiring actors, great improvisors, cut-through poets, musicians that just need to be seen to be snapped up, crazy circus acts and magic, comedy of all kinds - you name it, if it's entertaining and original, it's in. Or great acts that have been around for a while but they haven't had the oxygen they deserve - we will consider them sympathetically too!
We will start with one show - yes, just one! But a goodie! - and try and make it a real "talked about" hit. When we've learned everything that can go wrong - and corrected it! - we'll expand to further shows.
The goal really is to unearth great new talent - age, sex, ethnicity irrelevant - as well as have a lot of fun both as performers and an audience.
The next great vocal artist or instrumentalist. The next brilliant stand up act or sketch group. The next stunning improv troupe. Slam poets, jazz, folk groups, ethnic culture, soliloquies, crazy acts that defy easy description - yes yes yes!
Impossible is not a word in our vocabulary.
Risks and challenges
• We need to be discerning in choosing acts that knock people's socks off. And we will be.
• We want to be able to guarantee the performers SOME sort of payment for their effort. We need to be able to raise enough to make it worth their
while to put on a performance that really rocks, and to find a venue that warrants their effort.
• We need a venue that understands what we're trying to achieve and "buys into it", seeing the opportunity to build a new tradition in one of the world's most culturally busy and diverse cities. Eventually, we hope to expand to other cities, and even overseas.
