Get your super-8’s, handicams, pinhole cameras ready and submit a film, you’ve got until the 1st of March which isn’t soon I know, but it’ll be here sooner than you think. More on this later I’m sure!
In the other worlds of performance and showmanship there’s something that will appease the DIY, human-powered crowd. Those that aspire to create electricity with their pedals, getting off the grid so to speak, Annex Theatre is putting together a show for their upcoming season that’s going to be bicycle powered.

As it is still in its early production phases, auditions are still open if you’re interested, check the show’s site out here: Keep the Light On.
