MOLECULE Sharing

Hello!
We here at Tin Shed Theatre Co. are really excited to be re-starting our project development scheme in Newport, this Feb.
Supported by NTW: Team and The Project Space we've given one artist a two week residency, with support, resources, external mentoring and three hundred quid to aid them in the realising of a new performance. We'd love it if you'd come along and see it.
Whether you're a performance maker who might be interested in being a part of Molecule in the future, or whether you're a producer/writer/critic/theatre lover etc. we'd like as much support as possible for this emerging Newport based project development scheme.
Part of Molecule's ethos is to work towards some form of performance/show back in our laid back & unconventional empty shop space performance space at The Project Space in Newport. Then with an audience of eager minds, we'd like to open up conversations, hear thoughts and offer vital feedback on the performance.
More information on the whole night is below, and if you'd like to apply to be a part of Molecule in the Summer please visit our website: www.tinshedtheatrecompany.com
You can also follow the Molecule group on NTW Community and keep up to date with each show in development: http://community.nationaltheatrewales.org/group/molecule-artists-in...


We'd like to invite you to support our very first Molecule sharing:
MOLECULE
Artist: Dino Rovaretti
MADE OF PAPER 
The Project Space, Newport
Tues 10th February
7.30pm
£3 tickets (with a free glass of wine/beer)

WHAT IS MOLECULE?
Molecule is a new project development scheme that offers space, resource, opinion, and three hundred quid to artists seeking a platform for work in it's early, physical stages of development.
It is open to Welsh and International participants, and aims to assist the creation and development of new work that falls under the category of ‘Theatre’ ‘Performance’ or ‘Live Art’.
Supported by National Theatre Wales: TEAM and The Project Space we aim to run Molecule twice a year; once in the winter and once in the summer, offering our time, resources and a little bit of cash we hope to help nurture the creation of new and exciting work in Newport.



WHAT IS BEING SHARED?
Dino Rovaretti is a Newport born Performing Artist who recently graduated from Falmouth University, and is currently living and working in Bristol. 

Having met Dino some years ago, we had high hopes he would go on to create unique, exciting and experimental work. So when we learnt he was looking to develop a new autobiographical piece of work, entitled: Made Of Paper, we decided it was the perfect time to relaunch Molecule and support Dino in the early stages of his work and career.

MADE OF PAPER


Using an autobiographical narrative of illness and loss Dino tells the story of his medical journey with a congenital condition that he shared with a special teddy bear.

After a period of research in 2014 (see Missing Bear project), Dino presents a piece of visual poetry centred on his body and the one that is stuffed with fluff, in order to re-combine medicine and theatre. Using his medical notes from aged 5-10 as a score and script, Dino attempts to fit back into his younger body and understand his history and position on a notional scale of ‘health’.


We would love you to come and support Dino and Molecule on 10th Feb, offering your thoughts, feelings, ideas and suggestions.

Thanks for reading. Please share this blog and help support the future of Molecule.

A brave new year: Hotel Limbo and Molecule Development Scheme


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's a new day, a new year and a new Tin Shed Theatre Co.

We've got a lot planned for 2015, what with our large scale Macbeth at Raglan Castle potentially coming to fruition, the creation of a new piece of studio theatre currently titled; Hotel Limbo, and the restoration of our never-quite-off-it's-feet development scheme Molecule. We've also got plenty of  room for loads of other shenanigans and projects including our NIA: Artist Walk on 21st February.

We're really looking forward to getting our teeth into 2015.

But right now I'd like to tell you about two things your beautiful eyes and ears to gander:



HOTEL LIMBO



Where do all our hopes and dreams go? Do they cash a cheque, pack a bag, catch a bus and book a room in some forsaken hotel? Do they sit, teary eyed, sipping piss-weak-tea until oblivion comes? Or do they dance disgustingly under the neon light of the hotel sign?


A washed-up clown and a woman who won’t stop eating perform a physical lament.

We invite you to share a brief encounter with two desperate characters, inspired by modern perils. This will be the first piece of work created by Tin Shed Theatre under their new formation as a duo.

We're developing the work initially as part of Bristol Old Vic's Ferment Fortnight.

PERFORMANCE
HOTEL LIMBO
FERMENT FORTNIGHT 
Bristol Old Vic
Wed 28th Jan, 8.15pm £5 tickets

If you would like to come to our performance at Ferment Fortnight please click here for tickets.


MOLECULE

The sceme will be test-piloted by Dino Rovaretti, a Newport born, Bristol based performance maker currently making performance work as an individual and as part of performance company Daughters Of Albion. Dino will serve to be the first performance maker to work through the cogs of Molecule in order for us to develop our approach and formula for Summer Molecule.

Here's a little more on the work he intends to make.
