Description
This class is for both performers and the event staff that wants to work with them. When event staff wants to get music, dance, shtick, or other performing arts into their event, there are precautions you need to take to ensure the final performance is what you want. When performers want time and space from event staff to enjoy their art at SCA events, there are precautions you need to take to ensure the final performance is what you want. I’ve performed music, dance, theater, and misc schtick for over 20 years in the SCA including running the Performing Arts Program at the SCA 50 Year Event, and I’ll share how performers can work with SCA event staff to get spotlight time in a way that serves the whole event instead of just one’s ego. Performers of all levels can serve kings, autocrats, the populace, and the SCA mission as well as their own artistic calling with a few precautions.
