People Of Performance Art #16: Rob Gregson

is half of the artistic collective Tin Can People, based in Preston, who’s shows I’ve seen on several occasions. There’s something about Tin Can People that I instantly connected with, a simplicity of visuals, and dramatic text. We decided to do our PoPA somewhere neither of us knew very well, and we picked Sheffield.

The use of a pub or so was decided fairly early on, so we had a nice trip out to The Fat Cat & The Riverside.
