100% Vancouver Revolve Test

October 25, 2010

In honour of our city’s 125th birthday, the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, Theatre Replacement and SFU Woodward’s will place 100 everyday Vancouverites front and centre with the theatrical production 100% Vancouver.

But first we need to practice giving them all direction at the same time. And more than that, we need to make sure our theatrical revolve can handle the weight of 100 people.

Similar to last year’s exciting Best Before Game Tests – we need your help! This is another opportunity to have a sneak peek into the creative process of cutting edge contemporary theatre, to make some new friends and to see what it’s like to be on a revolve with 99 other people (not many people will be able to say that). We will provide eternal gratitude and light refreshments.

When: Sunday November 7th 12:30pm – 3pm

Where: The Great Northern Way Campus, 577 Great Northern Way. Signs will direct you to the correct part of the campus on the day.

What to bring: Yourself. If you often use an umbrella – an umbrella If you use your bike as your main form of transportation – bring your bike! Any other transport that you use – scooter, roller blades, sequeway.

What to expect: A new experience. The group will be asked to respond to a series of questions by moving to certain places of the revolve. Questions might be, “Everyone who takes the bus everyday stand on the left, everyone else on the right.” “Everyone who was born in Vancouver take one step away from the centre.”

We would love to have you there to help us begin the journey towards this amazing show! If you are able to attend, please RSVP to the PuSh’s Associate Curator Dani Fecko at dani@pushfestival.ca by Wednesday November 3rd.
