TINY LGBTQ+ SHOWS

PRESENTED BY JENIFER TOKSVIG / THE LARDER
LGBTQ+ artists spontaneously creating tiny little pieces of theatre, with people they have probably only just met.

Tiny Shows invites artists who are part of, or support, the LGBTQ+ community to come together and create some brand new tiny little shows to fill Omnibus Theatre, in response to a specific theme that is revealed at the start of the day.

Facilitated by Jenifer Toksvig of The Larder, using Open Space, all makers are welcome: performers, musicians, stage managers, directors, writers, improvisers, crafters, artists, choreographers, or any other kind.

A ‘tiny show’ lasts anywhere from six seconds to six minutes. It might be a whole play, a conversation, a dance, a musical, a knitted thing, a scene, a movie, a song, a gesture, a poem, a drawing, a question, a love letter…

Things you might get from this:
– some vibrant idea seeds
– a sense of being creatively reinvigorated
– the experience of Open Space as a new way to work with creative freedom, following your own natural attention focus and span – great for people with concentration challenges or those who like to flit around from place to place
– a community of other LGBTQ+ makers: maybe friends, collaborators, supporters, long term or momentarily
– a space in which you can make work in ways that feel risky, where there’s no such thing as failure, just exciting experimentation

You can come along and not make anything at all. You can just lurk if you like. You can make things and then not share them at all. You can collaborate or work solo.

You can engage remotely if you’d rather. Let us know, and we’ll set something up that works best for you. This might be a video link, if we can make that work, or joining a conversation by phone, or communication done by snail mail, or something else.


More info about the Tiny Shows process, and the open space process, is available here, including how to facilitate this yourself: www.tinyshows.co.uk

If you still have questions about access – and all questions are valid and welcome – please email Jenifer (jenifertoksvig@gmail.com) or tweet her www.twitter.com/toksvig, or ask someone else to get in touch with her on your behalf, if that’s more comfortable.
