Introducing our THAT Festival ambassadors: Rebecca, Callum and Jessica

macrobert has teamed up with a group of local young people to help spread the word about THAT Festival. Our ambassadors are going to be tweeting, blogging and podcasting their festival experiences. We asked a few questions to get to know them a bit better.

REBECCA

1) If you could see one event at THAT Festival, what would it be?

Do Not Feed The Trolls I was supposed to come and see it earlier in the year, however I couldn’t make it. Ever since I have been dying to see it, it sounds like a really thought-provoking but fun piece of theatre.

2) What THAT Festival event sounds the most intriguing?

It’s difficult to decide! Boy Magnet seems like a whole new experience, I really want to see how they’ll use light to help tell the tale. On the other hand The Holy Mountain is showing and I have heard all manner of things about that – it is one the movies on my 100 to watch before I die list (if that doesn’t sound too morbid). Both of these events have made me really curious.

3) Your dream festival: what would the line-up be?

Johnny Cash, Of Monsters and Men, My Chemical Romance, Glenn Miller, Bill Bailey, Arctic Monkeys, The Fratellis, The Modern Lovers, Amanda Palmer, Paramore, The Pythons and Young Blood Brass Band.

4) What’s the best live show you’ve ever been to?

I went to a contemporary theatre performance at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in May called From the wild fire winging swiftly on the wind: as a human I was immoral and sinful I deserve my second hell. The ferocity and intimacy with which the performers shared parts of their lives (all their fears, loves, hates and lusts were put in front of us to see) really made me think about all of my fears etc and I left feeling exhilarated, as if I had shared something amazing with not only the other members of the audience but the performers as well.

5) Fave film?

Four Lions – me and friend were laughing all the way out the cinema when we went to see it, and I am not exaggerating.

6) Fave band?

It’s really tough to pick because I like lots and lots of different types of music and it’s always chopping and changing, but I guess this month it’s Of Monsters and Men.

7) Fave sandwich?

Cheese and Tomato on brown bread and it has to have a little salt and pepper on it too, just to be awkward.

8) Give us a link to something random on YouTube (people falling over, a panda on a slide- you know the drill)

If you don’t go “Awwwww” at these you are made of stone.

9) What image would you like to be used to illustrate your blog?

A RUBBER DUCKY!!! (I collect rubber ducks.)
