Demostage is back. It's our informal, temporary space for presenting new ideas and open to people who make all kinds of creative projects (think theatre, music, games, sound, whatever). We want to encourage collaboration, sharing and critical discourse.
Presenters get 5 minutes to discuss/share what they’ve been working on and then audience members ask questions and give feedback. Inspired by software developers who meet up, drink and demo the programs they’re working on, it’s not a scratch night – it’s an informal event in a bar to share ideas, concepts and plans.
Demostage is a concept created by Dustin Harvey's Secret Theatre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Dustin very kindly open-sourced the idea for us and we debuted Demostage Bristol at Mayfest 2016. You can find out more about Secret Theatre here.
Make sure to stick around after Demostage for the Eurohouse and Infinity Pool Double Bill. Both Bert & Nasi and Bea Roberts are Bristol-based artists whose work has been making waves across the country.
