A Dirty Martini

About TrailBlaze! We are a Brighton based Interactive and Immersive theatre company. Having started life out at Exeter University its members, Charlie Blandford, Amy Curtis, James DuBois and Lizzie Franks decided to settle by Brighton's creative seaside. For us, theatre isn't just about sitting and watching. Our audiences are invited to join in the production and experience a world we have carefully created for them. We do this through improvisation, visual elements, arousing the senses and unique event based theatre.Here s a little about the show.... "Be a darling and fix me a martini? Trade innocence for decadence, bob your hair and leave your morals behind! The pages of this familiar story turn but the tale's transforming... Join Evelyn Waugh on a plot twisting performance driven by audience choice. There's always a different side to each story but which do you choose?" Our current project, A Dirty Martini, is based on the lives of the 1920's Bright Young Things. Inspired by the writings of Evelyn Waugh, we hope to create a wonderfully debauched party which are audience members are invited to. They will get to sip on cocktails, dance to a rather unusual band, get in the newspapers and even visit the races! The idea behind it... Our work revolves around the idea of group experience. How can we create unique communities within our performances? We are developing A Dirty Martini as an audience choice show. The narrative of the Bright Young Things provides us with a stimulating and interesting look into frivolous living; and its consequences. When a group comes together, they are driven by conformity and anonymity. This allows them to make decisions without having consequences on themselves. We want to use the theme of choice to manipulate the way and audience makes decisions as well as providing an exciting plot building narrative driven by them. What we will spend it on... To help develop the show further, we would like to use the crowd funder scheme to help raise a larger budget for the show- enabling us to truly create a believable world for the audience. And also to help market the show. We have a large faithful audience following at present which will help to raise the funding, but it is essential to us that we reach out to new audiences also. The show is due to be performed at the Brighton Fringe 2012 24th-27th May. It has been commissioned by Hendricks Gin. We are in the process of planning a tour around the South and Fringe Festivals.
