BOOFest Returns for 2012, Joined by BOOStock!

Bran, Second Life – In a two year partnership which began with a single story-based weekend in 2011 has blossomed into three popular annual events in the storytelling community, with a fourth on its way in December.  This year, Branwen Arts is building on the popularity of BOOFest, and their own highly successful BRANStock from earlier this year, into a fun-filled weekend that is sure to rock the region. BOOFest will feature a gathering of virtual story presenters and authors at their spooky and scary best Sunday, October 21 from 9:30am to 5pm.  The preceding day BOOStock will feature music, dance and theatre.

These events are free, and all times listed are SLT.

BOOStock: Saturday, October 20th

Produced by Branwen Arts.

A 17 minute play in 5 acts, performed in voice overs over the stream and a wee bit of local chat, and dance things on stage. Its one of our most performed plays largely because its super portable and a good laugh (never had a bad review yet !). Is short, fun, fast and bawdy. It has a stack of terrible jokes that are guaranteed to induce groans and cries of pain from the audience.  Peformed by Blue Moon Cabaret.

~~ 12:30 -1:30 pm:   THE FRANKENTINYS
Be afraid, be very afraid … a hugely spooky set from this tiny band

~~ 2:00 pm:  Myst Dancers’ SPACE JAM

~~3:00 -4:00 pm -  Reis Alter sings with Ald Alter
 Reis Alter has a unique voice and an original repertoire, an intriguing blend of nu-jazz and electronica varying from down tempo (with bosa-nova flavor) to fast samba-derived songs.

~~ 4:00PM till late - Benny the Boozehound spins the spooky tunes
