Guerrilla Theatre: For Faires and Festivals - J. Paul Moore

Guerrilla Theatre: For Faires and Festivals


Guerilla Theatre is a nuts-and-bolts approach to the kind of interactive environmental theatre found only at Faires, and is a superb handbook for both the beginner and advanced street/improvisational actor. Written by J. Paul Moore, a forty-year Renaissance Faire performance veteran and a master of improvisational theatre, the book guides the reader through the crafting and performing of a wide variety of ways to entertain Faire-goers, singly and in groups. The book is edited by Phyllis Patterson, the creator of the original Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Agoura, California. Different than any other kind of theatre, the streets of the Faire are the actor's stage, and the flowing ever-changing crowd their audience. In Guerilla Theatre, Mr. Moore supplies a how-to guide for mastering the required skills for playing to this audience, along with exercises, illustrations, a generous number of gambits that worked for him, and a goodly helping of war stories. What is Guerrilla Theatre?
Guerrilla Theatre for Faires is an interactive style of improvisational performance allowing audiences to become actual players in the show. The experience is by turns aggressive, passive, intimate, distant, obvious and covert. There are as many approaches as there are people to approach it. It is a broad, colorful, and captivating way of approaching the Faire canvas. Although a passion and/or talent for improvisation will prove invaluable in Guerrilla Theatre, the technique of creating distant visuals and hatching covert operations require little or no such calling. In fact, one can oft times recruit players from the audience to join your merry band on the spot - some more willingly than others. As a lone wolf or member of a group, one can create an exhilarating and compelling under-current of village life in Shakespeare's England. About the Author
