Pablo takes on Kevin-24/7?

Pablo Latona has finally taken reality television to where it should have gone in the first place.

No, not a real-time recreation of the prisoner’s dilemma.

Merely a man with talent, who’s putting himself on the line.

At high noon on Saturday 23rd August, Pablo put himself into a living, breathing and occasionally sleeping piece of art.

This coming Saturday he will emerge victorious, sleep-deprived and possibly more eccentric than when he walked into his 24-7 performance stage, otherwise known as the Alinga Street shopfront in the Sydney Building at the Civic bus interchange.

Surrounded by circus implements, a permanent house of cards, and his trusty keyboard, Pablo has been bringing living theatre in a box to the people of the bus interchange all this week.

Sometimes the crowd interacts and is even witty. Mostly Pablo gives them what for and keeps them laughing…occasionally uncomfortably.

You have until Saturday to see what could be the most innovative piece of drama to hit Canberra in quite some time. Seriously.

Swing by on the way to work, or on the way home from the pub, then just sit back and watch Pablo work the crowd from behind the glass.

Oh and bring him a cupcake. He likes cupcakes. 

Cabin Fever can be viewed live in the Alinga Street shopfront (next door to The Barracks) or online at www.cabinfever.com.au

Thumps you already owe myself and the Sanchez a number of beers at the pot on account of all those shouts you have missed already.

Its been hard keeping up with having to carry that extra burden of drinking your beer too.

Dude…my thoughts exactly. It will be about society and how someone drinking beer and arguing about stuff will err…beer stuff beer. Give me money, somebody.

Thumper 11:42 am 28 Aug 08

Hey DMD, let’s get someone to sponsor us drinking beer in the front window of the Pot Belly.

It will be rivetting!

I watched him eat. It was fascinating. I feel I learned something about society that day.

>Oh please. That line really doesn’t say much for Canberra. This is just some idiot’s sad attempt for a bit of cheap publicity. I’ll give him his due though. He’s quite clever in the fact that he knows most Canberrans, being utterly stupid, will actually think it’s something worth going to see.

Give it a rest, Have you actually gone to see some of the stuff he does? Because it doesn’t sound like it.

He is not just sitting in a room he is performing pretty much all day. He has also been collaborating with other performers from around Canberra. He is an amazing performer and has the rare ability to win over the most obnoxious crowd in interesting and innovative ways.
Heck he even had a guy come in and pass juggling knives to him who had been threatening to beat him up not 10 min before.

Before you start ragging on it I would suggest you actually go and watch for a bit.

Apparently, he’s being sponsored. I wouldn’t mind it if someone paid for me to sit around watching T.V. all day, even if people did gawk in at me.

well thats cheap rent for the city…

“Art” – a free place to live for a week.

The most innovative piece of drama to hit Canberra in quite some time??

Thumper 9:22 am 28 Aug 08

I wouldn’t call it art. I mean, really, how much talent does it take to sit in a room?

However, I still think it’s cool. Very cool…

Morgan 10:53 pm 27 Aug 08

Do you think he has planning permission to live in a shop zoned commerical?

Granny 6:03 pm 27 Aug 08

I am going out to buy Pablo a cupcake.

SamTSeppo 2:41 pm 27 Aug 08

Very cool. I would love to see photos of how the Civic Mooseheads drunkies crowds reacted to him.

realityskin 10:06 am 27 Aug 08
