Rhizome Cafe – Anniversary Celebration

You are Invited to Celebrate Rhizome Café’s Second Anniversary!
Saturday, September 27, 7:00pm to midnight
317 East Broadway, 604-872-3166
$0-$100 sliding scale (this is a fundraiser to help keep Rhizome going) but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. This is a chance for the wonderfully diverse crowd of Rhizome folk to come together to celebrate what we have all created together over the past two years. Join us for fun and games, performances and art projects, good things to eat, a lovely gathering of friends and co-conspirators, and more. In addition, we’ll be unveiling (and selling) the new Rhizome T-Shirt recently created through our collaborative process of rhizomatic design.
Also: Seeking (Short!) Performances! There will be a participatory element to the program. Your assignment (should you choose to accept) is this: Create a 60-second performance that represents something that happens-or could happen-at Rhizome. You can sing, dance, mime, read a poem, facilitate a game-whatever, as long as it lasts 60 seconds or less! Comedy, tragedy, documentary, satire-they’re all good! Perform solo or with a group! To sign up, send your name, what kind of performance you’ll do, and your technical requirements to lisa@rhizomecafe.ca no later than September 25. We hope to see you then!
