"BONKERS IN A GOOD WAY. I FELT A BIT LIKE I'D BEEN SLAPPED IN THE FACE, LEFT WONDERING WHAT HAD HAPPENED - I LIKED THAT"
HOTEL LIMBO - AUDIENCE FEEDBACK AT FERMENT FORTNIGHT
We like to play. It's good for you. We like to play with stories, in workshops, with other companies, with other people and most of all with ideas. Here's where we share all of our thoughts, works in progress and things we're playing with.
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're creating something that is part invention, part pastiche. Taking inspiration from Czech film maker Jan Svankmajer's short film series Food, combined with the companies physical approach and assertion of macabre humour, chaos and energy; Hotel Limbo is an exploration of ideas and form that utilises dance/movement, puppetry, film and food.
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 presented a very short snippet of Hotel Limbo as part of Bristol Old Vic's Ferment Fortnight. Having recieved audience feedback, we're not considering taking this piece into full development in order to tour it later this year.
Below are some photographs that we're taken of our tech rehearsal at Bristol.
