A Huge Night

Well, hello again everyone! It has been a while, we’ve missed you. It has been relatively quiet for Rendered Retina recently, with two of our members on a full time MA course and the other on a PGCE, time for the company has been a little hard to come by. BUT, last month we received […]

Post-Fringe Blues

Hey guys! Once again blog post Wednseday is here and once again it’s about our trip to Edinburgh. Well, I suppose less about the trip itself and more about being at home. For those of you that dont know (as if we haven’t gone on about it enough), we recently returned from our first ever […]

Why We Need a Fringe

Let’s get one thing clear, this post is about the Edinburgh Fringe Festival not about a choice of hairstyle (I used to have a fringe and it’s not for me). As some of you may know (and by ‘may’ I mean definitely because we’ve posted about it enough) we recently took our production of Timon […]

The Road To Edinburgh

Hey guys, so as you all know, Edinburgh Fringe is coming up fast and we have been SUPER busy getting everything ready! We’ve been creating material, tweaking, cutting and rehearsing non-stop and we are so excited to experience the Fringe first hand! During the run you’ll be able to follow our adventures and antics as […]

Only a Day Away

Tomorrow. A mystical land of unpredictability and unending possibilities. We are never quite there, always one day behind, caught in a relentless chase for what comes next. So where am I going with this? Well I suppose I’m going for some kind of uplifting message about hope. Yeah okay let’s go with that. We all […]

All of You Will Love This

Yes I admit this is one of our more obscure post titles but by no means do I think it is true (I do however hope it to be). Not all of y0u will love this, that’s just a fact, does that mean you are wrong? No. Does that mean my feelings are hurt? *sniff* […]

Everything is Politics, Or is It?

Something that you may notice about our work is that we tend to avoid creating political performances. There are a few reasons for this, one of them being that politics are devisive by nature. There are countless opinions and thoughts and consequences to consider, and whilst I believe that each of those things are inexplicably […]

A Little Fear Never Hurt Anyone

Fear is something we all experience and we all experience it differently. This post will somewhat relate to the company but mostly it’s a post I feel I need to write. Fear is an obstacle. It gets in the way of dreams, it stops you saying something you really need to say and keeps you […]

You’re Better Than You Think

‘The artist will never truly appreciate their own work’ Who said this I hear you ask? Me (Tom Mangan of Rendered Retina). I first said this to someone who was at the time having trouble realising just how good they were at what they do, and it resonated with me as well. I’ve been saying […]

Work For It

So here it is again, another BPW! We’ve been extremely busy over here at RRHQ, so I thought that I’d open this post with a quick update, seeing as things are coming up fast! On the Retina front, the guys and I are hard at work writing and devising for our brand new TIE show […]
