The Experiment : : Night Three

Often the best way to experience something new is to go in blind. Deciding to run with this concept, The Experiment is an event that for the most part leaves you with no choice. Billing itself as an ‘Urban Carnival’, a group of performers brought spontaneity and madness to nearly every cranny of the Basement Theatre on Thursday night.

My night-out with the Experiment started as most things do, with an entrance. ‘The Stairway of Affirmation’ greets each attendee and acts as a barrier between you and the performances. Once through said stairway, the carnival can be found in full force. Performers pop up throughout the night at various times; shows ranging from experimental theatre, poetry readings, to live music start and finishing abruptly, making sure that all attendees are thoroughly entertained.

The small periods between these performances lend themselves to explorations, with the Basement painted head-to-toe in installations. If you’re willing to look, you’ll find video displays hiding in toilets, torches hanging from staircases and even a night-out that lasts only a few seconds.

On Thursday night, the ground floor was occupied by a series of musicians. The highlight of my evening took shape in a group called ‘Fledglings’ and a series of covers they performed of some old indie favourites. Another notable performance came from a band who are new to scene, ‘Soccer Practise’. Getting an audience to dance is no easy task, but it was fairly inescapable thanks to their brooding beat driven songs. A solid farewell to Thursday night, ‘Soccer Practise’ ended my time with the Experiment on a high.

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
