Description

Join ground-breaking Amsterdam based trio Tin Men and the Telephone as they explore new ways to craft the live experience

Tin Men and the Telephone have made a name for themselves for their innovative approach to engaging audiences during their improvised live shows. Through the use of their cutting-edge technology, their specially- devised ‘Tinmendo’ app, they invite their audiences to become a part of their multi-faceted, hugely engaging, enormously fun interactive shows and you can be part of it!

This January there are three FREE opportunities to visit them in the studio for a special preview and behind the scenes insight into the bands explorations during a residency with OCM at Oxford Brookes where you can join in and give feedback. Then as one-off band members you are invited to a final session on the 11th January where with the use of the Tinmendo app you can take part in the show! The dates are:

Monday 8 Januray - 5-6pm - Special Preview

Tuesday 9 January - 5-6pm - Special Preview

Wednesday 10 Januray - 5-6pm - Special Preview

Thursday 11 January - 6-8pm - SHOW AND SHARE - This is where you get to interact with the show using the TINMENDO app

Spaces are free but very limited so do book a place.

In Oxford they will be joined by Andrew Sommerville and Jon Cooper, founders of differencEngine, a company specialising in immersive & interactive theatre whilst exploring the boundaries of technology in performance. Their shows see participants thrown into a world where they are both protagonist & hero; their 2014 debut show ‘Heist’ saw audiences breaking into a building, interacting through headsets & cameras and attempting to steal a painting without being caught!

A 21st-century gig ... drawing their audience into the heart of the gig.... multimedia gadgetry and a sense of mischief combined to create something fresh and unexpected. Roe and his friends were reminding us — in captivating style — that jazz can be fun and profound at the same time.
