With this post I am officially announcing my next project... Dribble Funk 380.
In September I will be turning 38 years of age. I have decided to do something impossible. I have decided to attempt a 380 minute solo improvisation. 380 minutes adds up to 6 hours and 20 minutes.
Yep, I will be alone on stage performing continuously for over six hours, completely making the whole thing up.
Let me be completely honest here: THE VERY THOUGHT OF THIS SCARES THE EVER-LOVIN' CRAP OUTTA ME!
Dribble Funk is a story-based solo improv format that I have been developing since 2005. It is the only kind of performance that still floods me with stage fright. I mean, butterflies in the stomach, the whole shebang.
That's the reason I keep doing it.
The longest set I've ever performed was just under an hour. So, honestly, I'm not even sure I can do a solo improv set for over 6 hours. As some may know, I am not the paragon of athletic fitness. This will take a serious amount of stamina, both mental and physical.
So, here's to the impossible!
