The Tingle Factor shows the best new performancees by international artists,
hand-picked from London's vibrant live art scene.

Subtly shifting light states and illuminated texts create an ever changing
atmosphere, provide custom made surroundings and link each performance
seamlessly to the next.

The interior of the theatre will be transformed by the Tingle Factor,
creating a variety of specific performance locations around the space.
Projected texts lend a filmic quality and guide the audiences attention to
the appropriate area, introducing a metaphoric as well as a physical shift from
one idea to the next.

The artists providing that illusive Tingle Factor on this occasion
will be Hayley Newman, Lone Twin, Bruce Gilchrist, Wayne Brett, Wordworks and
from Russia, Tim Gadasky and Vladimir Yaremenka, the naked Russian poets.

After the show, hang out in the bar and enjoy a sonic cocktail,
courtesy of People Like Us.



The Tingle factor is curated and devised by Kirsten Reynolds and Sue Hart.
