Culture Vulture Victoria and Intrepid Theatre present Gotta Getta Gimmick’s FRINGE MOB flash mob, August 23, 2011 – at 7:46pm, Centennial Square, Victoria BC.
We are hosting a FLASH MOB for the Fringe 1986 PROM Dance Party (August 23, Centennial Square) to celebrate 25th Anniversary of Intrepid Theatre and the Victoria Fringe.
Celebrated choreographer Jacques Lemay has cooked up a dance to a mix of the top 4 songs from 1986 (A Special Song Mix created by the Zone FM).
Gotta Getta Gimmick gathered a gaggle of actors to make instructional videos, and go around doing rehearsals in Victoria – the GGG Fringe Mobsters. Culture Vulture Victoira and Martial Media shot the videos, and will be filming the flash mob in Centennial Square.
You will be there – dancing – with hundreds of other Prom Kings & Queens in what will be Victoria’s largest flash mob ever – FRINGE MOB!
