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

How long did you stay for?
Did you just walk past? or did you stay until he was done?

I did go and watch it yesterday thank you blueberry. I was pretty disappointed. Thought you said he had a rare ability to win over an obnoxious crowd? When I was there, they were swapping abuse and he even told one fella to fuck off (several times). Yeah, a real talent that guy…
Reckon you should re-evaluate what you perceive as art and some dickhead bravely swearing at people from inside a locked shopfront.

Thumper, don’t knock jazz ballet in a giant rabbit suit until you’ve tried it!

*guffaw*

At present it appears that two girls dressed in giant rabbit suits are dancing to an old jazz record whilst another girl in red is walking/ dancing around.

This is just so out there, seriously….

>This is a person inside a box being watched by the public. His actions are controlled by the watching public.

No this is a guy in a room who is performing what he wants to perform and he is not just being watched he is interacting with the audience engaging them in parts of the performance. If you went and watched it you would know that.

Thumper said :

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…

None whatsoever … but it probably takes a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to be entertaining whilst doing so. I, myself, am not a terribly interesting sitter I must confess, but everybody has their weaknesses.

*sigh*

It is about creating and engaging rather than being controlled and watched

This is a person inside a box being watched by the public. His actions are controlled by the watching public.
