About

Rendered Retina are passionate about creating striking, energetic and visual performances that let loose our audience’s imaginations. From pulsating and fun-filled adaptations of Shakespeare’s classics to playful and physical explorations of human nature, we want our work to leave lasting images with those who see it.

About 1

Formed out of a passion for creating work, we are constantly looking for inspiration for our next performance, drawing on our own experience as well as our daydreams and things we see. Having known each other for 11 years and worked closely together as practitioners for 3 years, our work is extremely collaborative and the trust that has built through this allows us to test the limits of the theatre we create.

We recently received the Les Enfants Terribles Award 2017 for our new show ‘Form’ which will appear this year at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
