Lomography will be part of a 6-day long after-party for the international theatre students festival Istropolitana Project 2010 Bratislava, Slovakia. Party marathon? Indeed! Fisheye cameras attached to the bar plus an instant corner with original theatre costumes should document this craziness.
This is the 18th year of the festival, with 13 theatre universities, and 6 nights of after-parties in an old warehouse, djs, live bands and crazy actors from all over the world. Sounds like a nice scenery for lomographic party shots to me. To cover the whole party we will hang cameras in the place for self-shots and create an instant corner with costumes to have even more crazy pictures. After every party we will print the pictures and create a hall of fame/shame at the spot.
