Superhybrid! Wednesday, March 30th 8:00pm–2:00am Highlight Leeds Comedy Club, Leeds.
In March 2011 Black Dogs were invited to contribute to Superhybrid! a free event featuring performance, projection, stand-up and art at the Highlight Club, Leeds. Our contribution consisted of occupying a booth for the night that was used as a laboratory for mashed-up games surmised by Bryony Pritchard thusly..
'It was a bit like a party booth really-think we had about 50+ people come into the booth and stay 10-40 mins. We had a variety of games - what's the longest thing in your pocket/handbag?, dominoes/dice, dog of war (this has legs...), draw to audio almanac, biscuit riddles, sally's game, urrm think that was it (?!) if having decided they had won they could have anything they wanted from the Argos catalogue and take it home on a chip. Mick, James and myself had some interesting conversations with people, odd mothers, confused graduates.'
