This month we have some exciting news to share. Our new exhibition, Everyday Relics, opens at MOSI (Museum of Science & Industry) in Manchester this Thursday 21st Nov and our production, The Eye of the Hare, is on for a week at the Tobacco Factory's Brewery Theatre in Bristol from 26th – 30th Nov.
Select an object and see it come to life.
At the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), Manchester from 25 Nov 2013 - 29 June 2014. Free entry.
We have been artists in residence at MOSI in Manchester for the past few months working with their collections to develop this new exhibition. Everyday Relics uses some of the concepts and technology behind our Theatre Jukebox, but expands it to work in a whole gallery. Visitors are invited to choose from eighteen carefully selected objects from the MOSI handling collection, which are brought to life through projection, audio and touch technology. All of these objects are, or were at one time, considered ‘everyday’. By focusing on these often overlooked objects, we invite people to explore how the most familiar things can tell important stories, in this case, about Manchester’s industrial past. We hope that the exhibition will encourage people to think about the ‘everyday relics’ in their own lives.
THE EYE OF THE HARE
At The Tobacco Factory's Brewery Theatre, Bristol Tues 26th Nov 2013 - Sat 30th Nov 2013. Tickets can be brought through the Tobacco Factory Theatre box office on 0117 902 0344 or via their website by clicking here.
Lucy and Barney have been working with their Dad, Pip, to bring his 30+ years experience of documentary filmmaking to the stage.
Through this autobiographical piece, Pip explores the threads of continuity in his family, a serious accident, and the act of story telling itself. By juxtaposing broad themes like his love of landscape with intimate details such as the feel of his mum’s dress, Pip weaves together a story that relates to all of us.
Working with a 16mm film editor’s pic-synch and a live camera feed projected on stage, he guides the audience through the processes of editing. As he cuts and splices, the multi-layered story of his life unfolds through personal archives, paintings and poetry
Having begun the development of this show with a 10-minute piece for Prototype (TFT and Theatre Bristol’s work in progress night at the Tobacco Factory) back in March 2012, it feels really right that its first run will be through TFT at The Brewery. Hope to see you there!
