While most of the activities at Supernormal are available to drop in on a whim, a few will require a little more forward planning. Here’s our annual roundup:
We are looking for singers, choirs and willing performers who will work with Serena to rehearse and perform Ectoplasmic Variation at the festival on 5-7th August. This sound experiment will combine incantations and improvisational singing techniques that explore the resonance and sonic potential of the “witches bottles”. Full details here:
Opportunity for Singers, Choirs and Performers
Eastville Project Space will be hosting Synth Building Workshops Workshops led by Farmer Glitch to build standalone noise machines including: *Atari Punk Console *HalfWatt *PunkSeq10
Workshops are limited to 10 people each session and are £10-£15 – all materials will be provided and participants will be able to keep the synths upon completion of the sessions. To book your place please email: [email protected]
Babaloose uses open platform events, discussions & workshops to promote the politics of performing, and the power of an audience as a creative community.
They will be running a D.I.Y workshop where participants can use lo-fi materials to create their dream set for an open platform performance event in the afternoon!
The event will bring people together to share their practice in a space they have created. So, if you have never performed before or shared your writing, Babaloose is the perfect place to start out.
Everyone is invited to join in, turn up with something to read, sing, communicate and we will listen, applaud and have merriment!
Are you interesting? Are you interested in something? Would you like to spend 10-15 minutes telling Supernormal something interesting?
We are looking for (interesting) speakers, from within the Supernormal ranks. Whether you are a ticket buyer, performer or volunteer we want to hear from you. Talks can be about absolutely anything. Speak enthusiastically and Supernormal will listen. PowerPoint optional. Props encouraged.
If you’re interested in speaking, email [email protected] with a brief outline of your subject.
Safehouse is a long-running improvisation night based in Brighton. Participants are picked at random forming small groups, and they then improvise together for 10 minutes or so while the remaining musicians act as audience, then the next group is formed and so on.
This year, Safehouse are returning to Supernormal and inviting you to perform in the barn at Braziers Park. Participation is open to all festival-goers, so pack your instrument (or whatever you choose to improvise on) if you think you might be keen to take part.
Ever fancied getting your kit off for the sake of art? If so, head to the Barn at 9.30 and talk to Ben who is leading the life drawing sessions.
Those with an acoustic instrument or noise-making items can join-in with our annual festival procession led by life-sized puppets CHAMP – meet 5pm Saturday Activity Tent
Late night cinematic marvels in the Vortex after midnight each night as we present a selection of the bizarre, occult and mysterious films for your delectation etc.. and anyone who fancies making some sound to ramp up the suspense should turn up with instruments or percussion (acoustic only!) at midnight sharp.
Plus plenty more participatory activities and workshops for all ages here: http://www.supernormalfestival.co.uk/performances/#.term-workshop
