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 (image below) 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

Bring your charged smart phone and if you can, download the TINMENDO app - CLICK HERE!

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!  

If you'd like to follow the band on their journey contact for more info about how to get involved and check out the links and videos here. We look forward to seeing you in January!
