The Platform

I am so excited!! When I first heard about this from Johann I was all ears. But now that finally it is official, i am ecstatic. This is exactly the chance that those like us in performing are waiting for.

KLPAC is holding an Open Mic program. It is set up by Gavin Yap and Joe Hasham, to well known figures in the performing arts scene in KL. The stage is open to anyone that has a good script and willing to give it a shot at performing in front of a crowd. This is a great opportunity to let others see see your ability and talent. Who knows you may get spotted. And it is none of the ridiculous reality bits where people have to vote for you and so on, but it is pure performing. I’m not dissing reality shows, mind you…. I’m excited!!

You can find out more about it here at the KLPAC page.
The main things you have to know?

  1. Application starts as of now 19th Dec and all FINISHED scripts must be sent to OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS NOW!
  2. It is purely drama and theatre, physical theatre can be considered though.
  3. All performance pieces must be written by the performer(s). If the piece is written by someone not involved in the performance, then it must not have been published or publicly performed prior to the day of performance.
  4. No more than 3 performers per piece
  5. All pieces must be no more than 15 minutes and no less than 5 minutes in length.
  6. No mics - crap….. but good too work on throwing your voice on stage.

The dates are as such. Taking place at 8.30pm every first Monday of the month throughout 2008:

7 January, 4 February, 3 March, 7 April, 5 May, 2 June, 7 July, 4 August, 1 September, 6 October, 3 November & 1 December

Now I just need a script. Anyone with any ideas?
