Flash Mob Shakespeare
15 May, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This is a Shakespeare community project by Big Sky Entertainment and Funded by Lotterywest. A flash mob of Shakespeare based scenes. Actors would be tasked with going out into a local public space and perform a 2-5 minute pop up or flash mob performance of excerpts from Shakespeare’s plays to celebrate the Bard’s 400th anniversary. The performance would then be video recorded for Lottery west for viral and social media broadcast and marketing.
We need as many participants as possible to create a flash mob and the project is very simple as it requires only a couple of famous scenes from the selected plays to be rehearsed and memorized for performance. No auditions or previous experience with Shakespeare is required, just a dedicated commitment to a few evening and weekend rehearsals throughout the month of May at the Latvian Centre in Belmont so that can perform at least 2 sessions on the long weekend with minimal fuss and maximum great fun!
