SHORT ATTENTION SPAN THEATRE is going on the road this summer. Attend these shows and you will help the ensemble to raise travel funds to enter SAST into an international fringe theatre festival.
The goal? All 30 plays must be performed in 60 minutes, and the clock is ticking.
The catch? The audience decides the order of the plays.
The reward? If the actors meet their 60-minute deadline, they get to eat cookies. If they don’t meet it, they get to watch the audience eat the cookies.
“It's a half-marathon of theatrical creativity. A sprint of skill and originality. It's 30 plays in 60 minutes in which the audience is critically involved.”
SHORT ATTENTION SPAN THEATRE is an original, ensemble-written show featuring 30 short plays in 60 minutes. Based on The Neo-Futurists’ TOO MUCH LIGHT MAKES THE BABY GO BLIND, these performances will take place on the second and third Saturday nights of nearly every month throughout the 2013-2014 Etcetera season. Each show will be performed in an entirely new order, decided by the audience. Each month will feature new, original material.
Originally created in the Fall of 2011 at the University of Arizona, this revival of SHORT ATTENTION SPAN THEATRE pushes the boundaries of what a two-minute play can be. SAST involves a mixture of sketch comedy and devised work. The ensemble-written plays may be fiction or non-fiction, realist or abstract, movement-based or focused on spoken text. The only restriction upon the scripts is time. As a result, the show comments on current events, personal experiences, or any other pressing issues that the creators believe are important. SAST’s main goal is to explore theatrical expression within a time limit. Rather, we’re exploring 30 different theatre experiences within 60 minutes.
Upcoming performances (subject to change, please check website for updated information): May 10, 17
