Youth Theatre/Level 3 Programme Manager

Robin Shillinglaw

Robin Shillinglaw has been a member of Chickenshed since early childhood and began working as a member of staff in 2001 after graduating from Brighton University. Since then he has worked for Chickenshed on many different projects and in many different capacities within the performance, outreach, education and membership work. Within these areas of work Robin teaches, performs, leads workshops, directs, and choreographs, working extensively with Chickenshed's diverse mix of participants.

A significant project was in 2002, when as part of team, Robin worked in Ethiopia with the dance group, Adugna and this inspired him to work in Ethiopia as a volunteer for a further 8 months in 2003 and was able to bring back many developed skills from this experience to share with Chickenshed.

Robin has also been involved in a variety of outreach projects both nationally and internationally (Russia, Ethiopia, Costa Rica and more recently Kosovo).
