[ATL] Performers' Revel

Continuing a tradition whose origin is lost in the mists of time ... on Saturday, March 3, 2012, the ancient and venerable Performers' Revel will take place in the vasty halls of Caer Bear. This is an event OF performers FOR performers BY performers!

The call goes out to all musicians, singers, poets, dancers, actors, storytellers, jugglers and other practitioners of the performing arts. Novice performers are particularly encouraged. Are you perhaps learning a new art or skill Are you perhaps reluctant to perform before a packed and noisy hall Then this event is especially for you! By longstanding tradition, we have no audience - everyone who attends must contribute at least one performance. But fear not! The definition of "performance" is quite elastic. Give it a try!

This year, due to the challenges of scheduling events in ever-creative Atlantia, Performer's Revel is regrettably on the same weekend as Atlantia University in North Carolina (where our own bard and former Poeta Atlantia, Teleri Barud, will be teaching documentation classes in the bardic track). We're hoping the two are different enough, and far enough apart geographically, that neither pulls participants away from the other.? Note too that we're running this as an activity rather than an event, which is why it's not on the Kingdom Calendar.

PRACTICALITIES: By ancient custom, the revel will be held at the home of Baron Igor Bear and Baroness Fevronia Murometsa, 2204 Amber Meadows Drive, Bowie MD 20716. The site is wet (as long as you are 21 or older) and very cheap! The hall opens at 10am, performances usually start around noon and continue until the last vestiges of energy run out. The only fee is $12 to cover the feast - Baron Igor will conduct his traditional proof that cooking is indeed a performing art! [NOTE BENE: small children may find the need to sit quietly rather tedious, so parents may want to make appropriate childcare arrangements].
