Something Different - Pecha Kucha 15

Wanted ta go to the last two PKNs...but they sold out too quickly...d'oh!

Me thinks this creative crowd of designers could use a dose of theatrical enthusiasm from a merry band o' TheatreGoers...oui?

"PKN 15 features presentations on local ideas, projects and musings in the 20 slides x 20 second per slide format made popular world-wide by Klein Dytham Architecture.

Edmonton’s NextGen welcomes Firefly Theatre & Circus for a special aerial performance and music provided by Girls Club. Famoso Neapolitan Pizza returns with a gift cards for all ticket holders. Tokyo’s Klein Dytham Architecture first devised Pecha Kucha, the Japanese phrase for “the sound of chitchat” in 2003, as a night for young designers to meet, network, and discuss their projects. The catch: each designer gives a presentation containing only 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds, for a total presentation length of six minutes 40 seconds. Conceived as a venue through which young designers could meet, show their work, exchange ideas, and network, the format keeps presentations concise, fast-paced and entertaining."

    February 12, 2013

    • Steve G.

      Hi Alin. This isn't a play...its a series of live on-stage presentations on a yet to be determined cool topics. Each presenter gets a max of 20 slide show images and they are allowed to talk for 20 seconds/slide.
