TESTROOM 

CLINCH was selected for Testroom 2017/18. This competitive creative development opportunity is  Puppet Animation Scotland, supported by the National Theatre of Scotland, for Scottish-based artists of any discipline 

 

Based in Rockvilla, Glasgow, and facilitated by leading puppeteer Gavin Glover, #Testroom offered the opportunity to explore initial creative ideas which aim to place, at their heart, elements of live puppet or object manipulation.

 

Artists shared their initial ideas at Manipulate Visual Theatre Festival 2018 at the Traverse Theatre and the Tron Theatre.
