A moment with Scott Patterson of BIRTHWRIGHT INDUSTRIES’ ANNUAL SHAREHOLDERS MEETING
Why did you choose PortFringe this year?
I have had the idea of the performance in my head for years and PortFringe seems like a perfect experience to get the idea out of my head and onto the stage.
How was your show born?
My job over the last 11 years has dealt with Corporations and what I have learned is that we dealing with heartless people. My show is to expose the sad world of business in a friendly way in hopes we can make the world more enjoyable for more people.
What about the world *right now* makes it feel important to be putting this show out into the world?
My show would be relevant at any time since the first investor stepped up, but is perhaps most relevant right now due the global economy and the unprecedented modes of communication and its reach. Everybody is tied to the global economy now so we need to know our part and make it how we want it.
How would you describe your show to your mom?
I have had the same job for over 11 years and my mother still has no idea what I do. She doesn’t get the show. I hope she will be able to attend and see what has been in my brain for years. Even if she doesn’t understand it she will love it.
How would you describe your show to your crush?
I would tell my crush that it is groundbreaking and must see entertainment. I’ll be able to answer any questions she has after the show over a bowl of home-made ice cream and brownie. Yum!
If any famous person could see your show, who would you pick?
Have you checked out the other shows happening during PortFringe? Pick one you are excited to see or learn more about and tell us why!
I haven’t had a chance to look yet, but I’ll definitely check out the Finyette Productions feature. They are the ones who inspired me to sign up for PortFringe. I have enjoyed Mark and Ashley’s shows over the past few years and know I will be awed and entertained. I just scanned the listings and Body | Mass looks good. Sounds like something different and a bit naughty. I hope I can handle it.
Write a haiku about your show!
entertain people the one percent perspective have fun and be good
