!! STAND A CHANCE TO WIN R 10 000 !!
As part of the 1st Cape Town Live! festival, which aims to bring the internet closer to all those in the performing arts in the Western Cape, we have lined up a week full of activities and challenges.
So get together with a few friends, live or online and create pieces of live performance for the web. And remember, you are doing this for a good cause – as the winning piece of each day will be passed on to the final competition (FINAL BYTE) on Sunday where they stand a chance of winning R10 000!
Here is the schedule in brief:
Look below for more details about each day.
Together with this we are running the OFFLINE-ONLINE-LIVE competition (collaborators needed!)
where participants collaborate online to create and perform a piece on our Sunday FINAL BYTE night. You can check in on their progress at any time during the week through the PANSA website.
Each day’s entries will be judged by YOU the internet audience, so you must vote for your favourite piece each day to carry them through to the final.
And at the end of it, for the FINAL BYTE on Sunday the 28th of Feb,
we meet at LiquidLime Studios and watch the best of the best
to select the people’s choice for the best online-live piece,
which will walk away with R10 000.
All Week – Offline/Online/Live
Teams collaborate to create a 15 minute live performance. Trick is – they can only meet and rehearseONLINE!

In the morning, we will display an extract – an image – a video clip – a website – a piece of text. Your task will be to create a bit of live performance in response to this. Your live performance can take the form of spoken text, a movement piece, or pieces of music – but can also be a piece of written script…whatever, as long as you can record it and send it through to us.
Thursday – LessonPOD – 25th Feb 2010
Create a 10 minute (max) audio podcast during which you teach the internet population about any subject in performance art. Educate and entertain, give us a day in the life of Shakespeare, an extract from the Greek theatre, a talk on Artaud, a voice lesson, a class on rhythm….
Friday – Stream IN / Stream OUT – 26th Feb 2010
A special day in which we use internet technologies to broadcast our work worldwide. We give you a location, you arrive with your live performance bit, and we will stream your performance out to the masses.
Saturday – Urban Players – 27th Feb 2010
Teams are given three extracts of text from plays. Find a public space anywhere in Cape Town or the Western Cape and perform your three pieces. Capture with your camera phone and submit it to us.
