Tin Men and the Telephone like to collaborate with other musicians, ensembles and orchestras, but also artists from multiple disciplines such as dance and theatre to co-create new work. They have developed strategies to apply their special brand of interactive performance in all sorts of contexts.


The band also regularly receive requests to create custom shows and commissioned work for specific events or on a particular topic. Potential collaborators are welcome to contact the band for more information.
