about the artist
Sleepdogs is a collaboration between director/producer Tanuja Amarasuriya and writer/composer Timothy X Atack. We create emotionally resonant experiences for audiences, characterised by surprising storytelling and detailed, atmospheric sound design; particularly exploring how we exist as humans in a technologically and culturally dispersed world. Our work has been developed and presented nationally and internationally, including at the National Theatre, Manchester Royal Exchange, BBC Radio, Brighton Festival (as part of the caravan showcase of new English performance), Seattle International Film Festival, Bristol Old Vic, Bios (Athens) and NexT Festival (Bucharest). Previous projects include, The Bullet and The Bass Trombone, Dark Land Light House, Buzzard and Circadial. Timothy is the winner of the 2017 Bruntwood Prize for playwriting with his play Heartworm.
about the pitch
A Million Tiny Glitches is a new, electronic musical for theatre exploring the experience of grief in a modern world. Musically influenced by artists like Björk, ANOHNI, Nine Inch Nails and FKA Twigs; and narratively inspired by storytellers like Haruki Murakami, Jim Jarmusch and China Mieville, A Million Tiny Glitches will integrate projection, music and surtitling to create an experience that is undeniably modern, emotionally vivid, passionate and humorous. It will embrace sadness without being sombre.
