Tom Marshman

Tom Marshman has been making performance for twenty years, and created over 40 projects in a wide range of mediums including performance, photography, installation, publication and film. He has shown work in a variety of venues including b-side festival 2014, Bristol Old Vic, Arnolfini (Bristol), Oval House, Chapter Arts Centre, Camden People’s Theatre, Rich Mix, MAC Birmingham, Battersea Arts Centre, Basement Brighton, Colchester Arts Centre Exeter Phoenix and within Festivals including National Review of Live Art, Inbetween Time, Latitude and White Nights.

He actively encourages a dialogue with audiences and participants aiming to create a safe space to share their thoughts and experiences. The results give very evocative authentic glimpses into everyday things. To date the purpose of Tom’s work has been to address issues that are often considered as mundane or commonplace, celebrating everyday domestic objects and exploring what is often taken for granted. 

A Place in the Sun
