Later this month we will be one year older and none the wiser. As part of our birthday celebrations we are launching The Ballet-Mad Libs Project and we want all of YOU to take part.
What are Ballet-Mad Libs?
Our Ballet-Mad Libs are based on a popular word game of the 50s played at parties and social gatherings where one player prompted another for a list of words to substitute for blanks in a story (remember Friends episode “The One with the Kips”?). As you can see below, here they are presented with a very balletic twist.
How to Play
- Download and print out the attached PDF file by clicking on the image below. Print the file (in colour or B&W) or use Photoshop / Adobe Writer / Preview (Mac) or similar to fill in the gaps.
- Fill in the gaps using all your imagination and humour. Be creative and show us just how much you love ballet/dance. Entries from all over the globe are welcome.
- How to send the image back to us:
To reward the funniest entries we have commissioned a limited series of silkscreen, collectable prints which take inspiration from Gigposters and are designed to “Give Ballet a New Spin”. Trust us when we say these prints are of the highest quality and 100% awesome. They are unique, funny and probably the coolest ballet posters you will ever see.
Deadline for submissions is 22 May 2010. We look forward to your entries. Have fun & spread the word!
Alternatively, to register your interest in purchasing a poster contact us by email.
Ballet-Mad Libs Hall of Fame
The best responses to these Mad Libs will be collated and pasted in a gallery (together with links to your respective websites / Twitter accounts, if any) and later they will go into a big Ballet Mad-libs Hall of Fame, a new section in our site which will bring together responses from both sides of the curtain: fans, writers, ballet companies and dancers.
