A twenty minute excerpt of Decision Problem [Good Time for Questions] will be performed at FRINGE FUSE #2, Monday 25th February at 7pm in the Fringe Lab, Temple Bar, Dublin. FRINGE FUSE is a new-work initiative by Dublin Fringe Festival that runs the last Monday of every month. It allows theatre practitioners the chance to present new work to an audience. It’s only €3 in!
Decision Problem [Good Time for Questions] is a one-man show performed by me and my computer. It’s not a story of us versus the machines; it’s about us and the machines. It’s a story about the past, present and future of the digital universe. It’s a creation myth for the digital age. It’s Science Fiction Theatre. It’s far from finished.
Decision Problem [Good Time for Questions] had a work-in-progress showing last November in the Studio THT Galway. Monday night at Fringe Fuse is another step in the process of creating a new, exciting play that hopes to speak to our fears and hopes for the future. Audience feedback at this stage is important. So come along and help me build a better world!
Full details below on February’s FRINGE FUSE, including how to attend and info on the other work being shown on the night.
Thanks to Emma, Róise and all at Dublin Fringe for having me.
Any questions, give me a shout at johnthebad @ gmail.com and don’t be afraid to spread the word.
Peace, love & theatre.
FEBRUARY FRINGE FUSE: LINE-UP ANNOUNCED!
FRINGE FUSE #2: MONDAY 25 FEBRUARY at 7pm
FRINGE FUSE is a brand spanking new monthly scratch night where up to 5 works of no longer than twenty minutes will be tested out in front of an audience in FRINGE LAB on the last Monday of every month.
FRINGE FUSE takes place in Studio 1 at FRINGE LAB. Kick off is at 7pm sharp and the running order is as follows:
John Rogers will present a 20 minute excerpt of his current work Decision Problem [Good Time for Questions] – a creation myth for the digital age.
Oisin McKenna will be performing an excerpt from his new project GRINDR / a love story, a piece about twitter, sex and frantically trying to connect.
Aoife Connolly will be directing a section of Erin Hug‘s new play, Blocking the Noise of the Outside World – a comedy that investigates the dynamics within protest movements, and the absurdity of getting your voice heard.
Dick Walsh presents a reading of a work in progress called Some Baffling Monster, a play that explores ideology in the context of the family drama.
WANT TO COME ALONG TO SEE THE WORK?
You are more than welcome! Admission is €3 (includes refreshment) and the capacity is limited to 40 people (admitted on a first come first served basis). There will be a short 15 minute interval after Oisin McKenna and the night should come to a close at approximately 9:30pm.
