Performed live at Sci Fi Summer 2005, so controversial that it had its own late night time slot, and so funny that we just couldn’t keep it to ourselves.

ARTC presents the Brotherhood of Damn Sassy Mutants, episode 2: Miss Rorschach if You’re Nasty by “Sketch” Quinn.

Guerilla Radio Theatre

“Guerrilla Radio Theater” was commissioned by the Fellowship of Reason and perfomed at Manuel’s Tavern in Atlanta on March 19, 2003.  “Guerrilla” could (but oddly enough doesn’t) refer to ARTC’s ability to set up a live studio complete with foley, amplifiers, BIG speakers, a dozen microphones, mixers, samplers, keyboards and digital recording equipment anywhere in under two hours, perform and then tear down in another hour.  ARTC has performed in coffee houses, churches, outdoor pavilions, hotel ballrooms, stages and bars.  If there’s empty space and room for an audience, ARTC has probably performed in it. It reminds some people of either the Normandy Landing or dozens of clowns emerging from the little car at the circus….
The entire “Guerrilla Radio Theater” program is one hour and includes many other pieces.  We have limited our selections for this podcast to twenty minutes and, therefore, much of the original program is not included.

The pieces are comic satire and include:

“SWATting the Books” by Ron N. Butler – “Sovereign Immunity and Your local public library….”
“NOSINET” by Daniel Taylor – “What your banker knows about you……”
“Inhuman Rights” by Ron N. Butler – “Dodos is good eatin……”
“The Shape of Things to Come” by Daniel Taylor – “Technology and the single girl….”

Into the Labyrinth part 1

A few years ago ARTC had an opportunity to perform a Halloween show for the public.  We try to perform in October whenever possible as it is a month especially suited to our horror and science fiction roots.  Our forte has always been conventions and other semi-private events where our time slot was somewhat limited and so we usually only had time for one feature piece, or maybe a series of shorts.  We always performed them just once.

But when you perform for the public you sometimes have the opportunity to repeat a show or even…dare I say it…have a run of a show.  Furthermore, we were able to expand the time slot to include the series of shorts and the feature piece.  Faced with the prospect of having more material to work with than usual and the fact that very few people had heard of any of our work at the time (outside of our loyal fans…hi, everybody) we felt the need to choose a marketable title for the overall show.  We found one in our own catalog.

Into the Labyrinth was (and is) our in-house imprint for original horror and dark fantasy.  It was one of our first, along with the audio magazine The Centauri Express, and the introduction about the “simple garden maze”, masterfully presented by William Brown, appears on a number of our studio productions.  It seemed appropriate to use the title to help promote our live show of similar material.

As our podcast continues, you will hear many excerpts from various Into the Labyrinth shows.  We hope you enjoy them all.  This week features Mildly Exciting Tales of Astonishment: Sweet Revenge and Nikki’s Place: The Collectors.
