|The Bill Black Western
The Western Shows were developed to provide the type of
showcase Bill desired to allow audiences to experience poetry
They are designed to provide insight into the ideals of
the West and its role in the formation of American Character.
The shows are designed to require little set-up and take
down time. This is a critical factor to many planners who
must have several activities in series in the same rooms
or halls. It also allows others performing in the area more
time for their needs. This is especially critical when Bill
is performing as a Master of Ceremonies for a show.
The shows are intended for adult audiences, as the method
of presentation and messages are not designed for a pace
most pleasing to younger children. Also, although both the
language and topics are within the scope of day to day life
and mass video entertainment, some parents are not comfortable
with this in live performance with their children present.
When acting as an MC, the portions that Bill performs
are shorter than in a “single performer” show.
In these, small blocs from the larger, longer shows may
be used. Shows with Bill as the single or major performer
can range from 20 minutes to 70 minutes. The length of the
show needs to be planned to meet the available performing
time. It should not be significantly altered immediately
prior to the show for its best presentation to an audience.
The Paradigm and Problem Solving
These presentation are designed to start with the Problem
Solving and Learning and Paradigm definition blocks as a
base. The presentation would then follow into the examples
type components and usually include the Inevitability of
The shortest, introductory section only presentation usually
runs in the 15 to 20 minute range. A presentation of all
sections should be considered as a longer, class type presentation,
with approprate breaks. This would usually be customized
for the audience. A portion of this time need is based on
a “Question and Answer” section after the presentation.
The prices of the shows is based on the distance to your
show site and the length and type of show / presentation
desired. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
