OpenMind is the name of the event run by Ushiku "Indigo Angel" Crisafulli.

The premise of this event is an OpenMind for creative possibilities, and an OpenSpace to share them.

Each month we have a theatre practitioner sharing a new work in progress piece with an informal Q+A online beforehand making familiarizing them with our audience. However we are open to adjusting the format to fit our guests criteria as we've had a comedy headliner at our Christmas 2010 show, a a soul singer at our Valentine's 2011 show, and a wrestler as headline artist in a special project coming up in April.

OpenMind is the name of the event run by Ushiku "Indigo Angel" Crisafulli.

The premise of this event is an OpenMind for creative possibilities, and an OpenSpace to share them.

Each month we have a theatre practitioner sharing a new work in progress piece with an informal Q+A online beforehand making familiarizing them with our audience. However we are open to adjusting the format to fit our guests criteria as we've had a comedy headliner at our Christmas 2010 show, a a soul singer at our Valentine's 2011 show, and a wrestler as headline artist in a special project coming up in April.

As well as the main OpenMind artist slot we derive our name from, we also book roughly 3 or 4 artists each month in 15 minute guest performance slots in the second half, often styles outside of traditional theatre. For instance poets, bands, comedians, musicians, MCs, and dancers have and shall continue to work with us.

After the guest artists perform, we have a short break, afterwards our headline artists has an hour to share their new theatrical or performance idea.

We then have another short break before the third part of our evening: OpenSpace. This is an OpenSpace for different performance styles - dance, acting, spoken word, singing, comedy, playing instruments... whatever it is that you do, you have a 5 minute slot to do it. Our OpenSpace has become a popular part of the show for audience participation.

As of March 2011 we will be located at Sandbar for our future events, with our new home we have a new start including a new website, a new 3 hour format, and the new 10 minute chaos performance from the OpenMind Collective at the end of every OpenMind event.

If you're a performer who doesn't have a work in progress script to share but still has a lot to give, then get in contact with us and we'll be happy to give you a guest slot. We're all about sharing different performance styles in an open and friendly way, encouraging integration.

Regards,
OpenMind
