Found Arts Festival : Day 1
Fri 4th March 2022 - Fri 4th March 2022
4th March 2022
Tramshed presents their first annual Found Arts Festival - a space for emerging artists to connect and challenge through seeing, doing, listening, discussing and creating.
The festival has been curated for anyone who identifies as an emerging artist in the performing arts industry, with or without training, and is aged 16+. Each day of the festival is designed to stretch creativity and equip participants with practical skills as well as allow space to discuss, connect and network with peers. This will be followed by a quality performance in the evening.
If you aren't an artist - don't worry! All our shows are open to the public, we promise to host a brilliant night of entertainment for an affordable price. You can book for events individually or grab a day ticket for only £10!
Check out what's on 4th March -
Project Lockout Takeover Day
10:30am - 6:30pm
Workshop with 30 max capacity
Spend a day with Project Lockout, training in their unique blend of physical theatre, ensemble movement and mime. You will be generating sequences with the company to be captured on film, making a digital art piece before the day is done! No experience necessary - only a willingness to participate to the fullest. The final digital art piece created will be screened on the final day of the festival during Theatre & the Digital World event.
Project Lockout is led by Artistic Director Michael Lynch (Associate Filmmaker at Frantic Assembly, Samsung Spotlight Award Winner for MIME and Associate Artist/Performer at Justice In Motion and GymJam). The team is made up of a collective of artists practicing ensemble movement and mime within the realm of theatre and film. Project Lockout is a Resident Company of Tramshed for 2022.
For Friday’s Project Lockout Takeover Day, please prepare the following:
- Come in moveable clothes and trainers (you’ll be wearing these throughout the day - so make sure their comfy)
- A water bottle
- Bring a change of clothes, something casual you’d wear in a waiting room and which is easy enough to change into
- Bring a pen and paper
The day will involve a lot of physical contact, however we will accommodate to individuals who may feel uncomfortable with this as well as for participants with existing injuries.

Deadnamed by Dian Cathal
What do you get when you mix a funeral and a queer circus? Lucky for Trans people, we get to find out! Apparently we die when we transition so it seems like the only respectable thing to do is to hold a funeral. A hilarious journey through identity, language and mayhem!
