"Pregnant with possibility" is how Brian Viziondanz has described
"Around The Table TV"
"a fully interactive participatory event",
"an experimental discussion forum"
" The "Around The Table" TV event will be a blending of theatre and
discussion, where there is no audience as such as everyone is invited and encouraged to be involved.
For those unable to attend the event in Glastonbury in person. the discussions will be webcast through the website
Those who are watching on the web will be able to interact with the discussions through twitter which will be projected on a large screen in the venue, these contributions will be fed into the ongoing discussions and back out through the webcast maximising the potential synergy of the event
The Table will be situated in the centre of the floor surrounded by "the audience", there will be chairs at the table which will be occupied by
whoever wants to be there.
There will be a pot in which we can put our suggestions subjects for
discussion at the table. Every 30 minutes, one new subject will be randomly selected.
Each person at the table can discuss the subject for 60 seconds then allow someone else to take it up if anyone wants to.
At the end of 30 minutes a 5 minute summing up of the discussion will take
place, then a new subject will be selected.
If the table is full and someone wishes to participate someone at the table will
be requested to surrender their place - we will draw straws if necessary
we would like to create the feeling of your home and invite you to
bring snacks food etc etc to share - there will be a bottomless coffee pot and teapot.
This is a "magic hat" event where you are invited to make donation to cover
This is the third of a series of experimental events in this genre and it will
be videoed and broadcast live over the internet.
The video will also be edited down and distilled into capsules to be shown on the internet at a later date
We are also encouraging people to host and video similar events in
their home town and upload them to youtube which we will embed on the
