In this lunchtime talk Sleepdogs are introducing an early-stage project called SUPERNOVA: a one-on-one theatre experience that imagines you are in the presence of a star on the edge of explosion; using the heat of close-up stage lighting and an all-enveloping soundtrack made from manipulated NASA recordings.

Sleepdogs is a collaboration between director / producer Tanuja Amarasuriya and writer / composer Tim X Atack. They make fictions for theatre, screen and audio; mixing and matching influences and processes across different forms. Their most recent show Dark Land Light House, a sci-fi for theatres, played to sold-out audiences at Bristol Old Vic in 2016.

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.

Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday.

Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who’s interested in what we do.

After the Talk, we also invite you to stay with us for the afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm.

Let us know if you’d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around just before the talk. Send an email to to book your place on a tour.
