A Minor detour ‘Stepping off the edge’ 8th March 2014

A Minor detour provides an umbrella for performances of an unusual, experimental and original nature
the bluff (publicity)
the bluff (publicity)

Everyone is bluffing until someone sets foot on a stage!



(individual items below)

It was a mixture of talents, genres, themes and styles
Some of the pieces evolved from the Sunday Sessions
Some were personally devised by the performers
Some were rehearsed
Some were improvised on the spot
Some traditional Indian and experimental music
Some known and some unknown
Some quirky humour
Some social and personal commentary in song, spoken word and performance art
A changing musical ensemble
The program was greater than some of the parts and
definitely subject to some improvisation

Doors opened at 8:00pm
Showtime 8:30pm – 10:30pm 9:15pm – 11:15pm

(We were ready … if it was a bus, some people would’ve missed it! Great you made it!)
