ProEnglish Pecha Kucha

Enjoy presenting? Have a story to tell? As the International Theatre Day is coming, we’re looking for volunteers to present on April 28th 19:00 at ProEnglish Theatre (Smolenska 3)

Pecha what?

Pecha kucha. 20 Powerpoint slides (images only), 20 seconds per slide. Six minutes, 40 seconds total. Developed by designers in Tokyo to keep presentations concise and fast-paced.

I still don’t get it…

YouTube to the rescue. Here are a couple of examples of great pecha kuchas:
I love the spelling bee: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9P_FoLFKXw
20 seconds of courage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ek46u3UgE1o

So what’s the point?

A bit of evening fun and the chance to hear some entertaining presenters, or to take to the stage and give a presentation yourself! All of the pecha kuchas will be loosely based around a theme.

What’s the theme?

What I Hate About Drama.
You can interpret this in any way you like, and it does not necessarily need to be Theatre related, but you may wish to consider things like:
• my life seems to be a performance;
• criticize contemporary tendencies in art;
• your worse theatre attending experience;
• insights into something you did, read, watched or listened to concerning theatre;

What else do I need to know?

Think of your audience, keep it light and entertaining, make sure you have 20 slides of images and a good story, and take time to practice beforehand. In brief, “Enlighten us, but keep it short.”
Count me in. Where do I sign up?

Anyone who speaks English and wants to improve presentation skills can volunteer to present a pecha kucha. Time will be limited, so we can only accommodate around 10 presenters. Contact Tanya Shelepko (https://www.facebook.com/tanya.shelepko.1) and she will provide full instructions.
