Kubrick Poetry Christmas Special - Take It or Leave It
What do you do when people hand you a leaflet on the street?
Have you ever handed leaflets to people on the street?
This Christmas, we’re going to interact with strangers by giving them poems! The poems will be presented in the form of leaflets. This may be your best chance to interact with people in public under no commercial pressure. So go all out!
Date: Sat Dec 22, 2012
Time: 9:00pm (We should be done by 11pm)
Place: Kowloon TST Shangri La Hotel Lobby If you are interested, please you kindly send your contact information (name, mobile number, number of friends) to this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for confirmation.
How to play:
Briefing in the hotel lobby (We’ll pretend to be tourists and I may bring a flag)
We will divide into groups of 3 or 4 (so bring friends!)
Each group will station in a spot in TST East to distribute poems.
After we finish handing the poems, we will meet in an open space to discuss our experience. For example: Any interesting stories? Any interesting responses? Did you feel shy? Did you meet any rude people? How did you feel when people turn away from you? How did you feel when they received your poem?
From now to Dec 17
Send us a poem that you would like to give to the people who will be walking around TST on the evening of Dec 22 email@example.com
We’ll need help with photocopying, printing, folding, drawing… So if you can help in any way before the event, please let us know.
How to prepare:
Wear a Christmas hat or a wig
Look cheerful or sexy or both
Bring something to sit on the ground when we do our sharing session outside
Think about what you will say to the people. (You’re not going to just hand it out like a robot, are you?)
We’re thinking about adding an interactive element to the leaflet so that it gives a chance for people to respond to the poem or to our activity. Also, please try to be there on time. If you happen to be struggling on that day, you can call Adam 9455 xxxx or Polly 6247 xxxx.
