Amber Griffiths will need to approve that you worked on “The Horologists Workshop” before we add you as a collaborator.

The Horologists Workshop

Based upon the book 'Einstein's Dreams' by Alan Lightman - essentially a collection of short stories, each of which details a differing system of time and how this would this affect human life - 'The Horologists Workshop' is a travelling piece of intimate and immersive theatre.
Randomly appearing in town squares, parks, etc. across the country, an audience of up to three people at once would enter the caravan and meet a Horologist character that apparently uses the space as his clock and watch repair workshop.
Within the space all the surfaces are crowded with clocks and watches of various kinds, each time piece has hands that move in one of eight ways. The audience are asked to choose a piece that they find of particular interest - the piece chosen would then allow the Horologist to recount one of eight tales taken from the original source material.
The focus of the project is on experiential storytelling that can travel to diverse locations where perhaps people are unfamiliar with this intimate and engaging type of performance, therefore introducing new audiences to unique and exciting immersive works.
