A beautiful piece by Suna and Steampunk India, touching on her collaboration with Clockwork Watch, and our reference of India as the start of our Steampunk story.
The Tinku Diaries is an interactive journey of discovery, taking participants deeper into the ‘make believe’ Steampunk world of Clockwork Watch, a story told through live events, graphic novels, an online newspaper, and film.
This will be our second immersive theatrical performance hosted as part of the National Maritime Museum’s Longitude Season.
Meet Tinku, wife of eminent scientist, Chan Ranbir, the man who put ‘Great’ back into Great Britain by designing a kinetic heart to power the country’s most lucrative export – the Clockwork Servant.
Uprooted from her home in Calcutta, Tinku ‘toes the line’, and keeps up appearances on behalf of Chan and his main benefactor the East India Company. With her son, Janav, away at boarding school, Tinku is left to her own devices in a very unhappy home.
Step into the immersive world of Clockwork Watch. Hear about the ambitions of the East India Company, and search out the intimate secrets of a woman abandoned by a husband rumoured to have a God complex.
This performance features Suna Dasi as Tinku Ranbir, Phillip Whiteman as Thomas, and Ziazan as The Oracle. The Tinku Diaries is produced and directed by Yomi Ayeni.
Date: November 13 2014
Location: Traders Gallery, National Maritime Museum. Greenwich
Times: 18.30 | 19.15 | 20.00
Tickets available through the National Maritime Museum website
We are proud to announce that our next immersive event will be held on November 13th, as part “Clocking Off Late“, at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.
The Tinku Diaries is an interactive piece taken from Clockwork Watch.
This is a chance to get a firsthand account of the Clockwork Watch world from Tinku Ranbir, mother to the ever-questioning Janav, and wife to the stoic Chan.
Clocking Off Late – The Tinku Diaries will be staged in the Trade Gallery of the building, among the East India Company exhibit.
We are delighted to be, once again, working with Suna Dasi of Steampunk India, who will be playing the role of Tinku.
Thanks to all who came to the Steampunk Summer Fete, on August 3rd. It was a great event, and we hope you enjoyed the immersive story and characters that you interacted with.
