Tarrare is a creative practice based research project initiated by Director and Senior Lecturer Sita Calvert-Ennals, exploring the true story of 18th-century French medical anomaly, Tarrare. The work investigated the adaptation of Stanislavski’s naturalistic approach to acting, as a methodology to develop puppet theatre into an engaged visceral experience for an audience. ‘The Depraved Appetite of Tarrare the Freak’ became the final output of the research, and toured the UK in 2015, and 2017 and was funded by the Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England.
