Debatable: A Live Debate Competition
July 29, 2017 • 8:00 am PDT
Calling all contrarians and devil’s advocates, debate night is your night to shine…Admission aims to bring debate to a wider audience by partnering with LA promotion company, Gravity Bookings, and Radio station KXLU. Debatable, a live debate competition, will be hosted at Mid-City’s antique cafe/theater, Fais Dodo. While it will feature a classic single elimination bracket, the topics will be chosen by attendees giving you, the debater, only minutes to prepare your arguments (Spar Debate). In the first rounds, resolutions will be humorous and lighthearted, and become more sophisticated and topical as debaters advance to higher rounds. After a winner is declared, a DJ Avó Minha will bless the dance floor, leaving the audience with the choice to twirl, start a new debate, or grab another drink.
Info: July 29th — 8-12am
Judging: You will be evaluated by the audience on:
1. Content and strength of arguments
2. Stage Presence
3. Overall performance
