New Mini-Zines Series

Zines with illustrations and performance scripts are a major part of what Do It Theatre do.

Our Zines are usually created to be read in our unique installation/performance spaces, however with this new Mini-Zine series we are changing the format.

We are creating and publishing a set of Mini-Zines that can be read and enjoyed in a series of specific outdoor and indoor locations – or alternatively you can read them whenever you like. The idea is to experiment with performance as text.

The Mini-Zines are a combination of text, illustrations and comic books and tackle a variety of different issues.

Information on Mini-Zine 1 – Middle Meadow Walk is below. More Mini-Zines will follow in the future.

 

Middle Meadow Walk

“There are many streets in Edinburgh that  serve no purpose” Middle Meadow Walk is a pathway in Edinburgh that runs through a parkland area known as The Meadows. At times it can be quiet and at other times it can be busy with people walking their dogs or out enjoying the sun. Middle Meadow Walk is a story that takes you out of yourself. It gives you space to think, relax and then act. The story takes place at Middle Meadow Walk, but if you cannot make it to that location, you can read it wherever you like. The Middle Meadow Walk Mini-Zines will be distributed throughout Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017. Look for it at various venues and if you find one, please read it and take it home. It is not a flyer for a show. It is the show. Look on twitter for updates.

After the Fringe Festival the Mini-Zine for Middle Meadow Walk will be available to download on www.doit-theatre.com.

Photos from Circles, Circles, Circles at Anatomy – Friday 4 March 2016

CirclesCirclesCircles-DoItTheatre-AnatomyArts

On Friday 4 March we presented a new Private Play called Circles, Circles, Circles in a brand new method. Instead of having an art installation, we asked the audience to read the script in a theatre space, during a segment in a multi-arts cabaret event called Anatomy at Summerhall in Edinburgh. During our segment the host introduced what Circles, Circles, Circles is and handed out the zine. The audience then had ten minutes to read and experience the Private Play. We have some photos of the event below. The were taken by Rich Dyson.

As this was an experiment for us we are still looking into presenting Private Plays in this method. Ideally we would like to take the concept to spoken word and theatre scratch nights. This may involve adapting the idea of Private Plays some more to suit that style of event.

We will keep you posted on more events like this and will post up some videos of Circles, Circles, Circles at Anatomy next week. We will also update the Private Plays section of our website to give a documentation of the event and a pdf of the zine if you would like to read a digital copy.
