so as you may have herd most of the evening events are off until the 26th of April, the exceptions being Stunners this Saturday and the Howl nights on Wednesdays. Daytime classes and workshops will go on as usual.
Why is this happening? well because we are trying to get our license back! woot woot! but there’s lots of stuff needed done first including large scale renovation of the fire alarm system, If anyone out there could help with that, would be cool. But yeah we gonna give our limited core team more time to get the necessary changes made. And speaking of core teams…
Other news!!! Cos its been ages since we posted anything, but i see we still get visitors every now and then.
so lemme see… we didnt manage to pay rent last month.
I busted out with a broken heart, still trying to limp back into the air.
Mim has resigned and is no longer taking an active interest.
Jess is on leave too, and will be back in a few weeks.
We have had a few new additions to the core team (and by that we mean people who show up and do stuff) Chris and Becca being prominent entries for noob of the week
If you haven’t seen it already, there is now a volunteers page on facebook http://www.facebook.com/?sk=nf#!/group.php?gid=110074869010973
I don’t know if ill be there much more, The feeling and ethos of the door has changed, it used to be a very respected and respectful place, a sanctuary of silliness, stupidity and synchronicity. An acoustic venue that believed in local produce, moderate intoxication, entertainment, experimentation and interaction. It was about producing great theater in all forms, street, wood, inner city festival.
It was that performance freedom that gave the door its great vibes, made it the place to have an amazing party, but the point was in the practice, not the party, that was a side effect.
I think this has been lost a bit of late, there are few practitioners and we increasingly go for the party without the performance, or the performance being subservient to the party. Remember the Halloween festival, ‘A Wake for All Souls’ ?
So this is my call, my last try. People who want to make things, dance, puppets, singing, happening, costuming and characterizing. Get your ass over there and use it! while you can.
see you round.
