What to Expect:
This versatile show can be performed several ways.
During the Adelaide fringe expect to be outdoors, standing or sitting on the ground.
Raw Street - On the raw street, such as Rundle Mall, no one is expecting an event or entertainment. In this environment Tianna's job is to weave a community event out of nothing. The first 15 minutes can be painfully awkward; passersby may react to the performer and performance in all kinds of ways. It's a great place to witness art meeting the real world.
Festival street - The outdoor environment at a festival is a bit more prepared for entertainment. Still charged with the vibrance of the unpredictable, outdoor performance at a festival is a bit more relaxed and nuanced. Tianna will be performing on the closed Rundle Street on the weekends between the Garden of Unearthly Delights and Gluttony.
Indoor Theatre - At the moment Tianna has no indoor theatre bookings during the festival that are open to the public. The theatre show is focused, fast, and includes additional stunts that are unsafe to perform on the street. If you would like more information, email Tianna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why pop up?
This show is designed to be versatile and accessible. It can be performed in a theatre, outdoors at a festival, or on the raw street. The street is unique, in that it allows audiences to access the show who may never have contact with it, were it in a theatre. They may be people who attend festivals for the atmosphere and would never have thought to see a show, or they may be people for whom theatre is financially prohibitive. Whether patrons choose to seek out the show, or stumbled upon it by happy accident, the street allows everyone the opportunity to enjoy.
What is "hatting"?
In the grand tradition of street theatre, Tianna will hold out her hat at the end of each street show. Unlike theatre shows where tickets cost a prescribed amount, at the end of a street show pay as much as you want, or as much as you can afford.
