DRIBBLE FUNK 380
Created and Performed by Brad McEntire
Dallas-based playwright and performer Brad McEntire is turning 38 years of age in September and as a challenge to himself he will attempt a 380 minute solo longform improvisation. He is calling this experiment Dribble Funk 380.
Since 2005 McEntire has been developing a solo improvisational format called Dribble Funk. The longest he has performed the piece to date has been 50 minutes. On September 1, 2013 he will stand alone on the stage and attempt to create nearly six and half hours of spontaneous theatre. From an audience suggestion he will play all the characters, create all the environments and drive the story forward - whatever it may be - single-handedly.
Artistic Director of Audacity Theatre Lab with a background in both traditional and experimental theatre, McEntire is one of a handful of pioneering performers in the sub-arcana of solo improvisation (there are only maybe a dozen or so consistent practitioners in the United States). He is the creator of the original solo improvisational story format Dribble Funk, a hybrid creation at the crossroads of longform improvisation, traditional theatre and storytelling. He is also a playwright, solo performer, visual artist, director, podcast host, webcartoonist and raconteur. More information at: www.BradMcEntire.com
Audiences may come and go, though are encouraged to stay for the entire performance. There will be two short breaks in the performance at the two and four hour marks. Food and drink will be available on site for the duration of the performance. Outside food and beverage are permitted (including alcohol... BYOB). Do not worry. You will be taken care of. It will be an adventure.
"McEntire's knack for creating intricate story arcs, wacky characters and surprise angles on audience suggestions isn't to be missed." - The Dallas Observer
