An Evening of Playback Theatre with Tarte Noire Women's Playback Theatre Company www.tartenoire.co.uk
Tarte Noir - Transforming memories into magical living theatre.

Tarte Noire 3.jpg

Tarte Noire is a women's playback theatre company, based in South Devon, who create theatre performances that are dedicated to exploring and affirming the everyday stories and experiences that affect women's lives.

Playback is a form of spontaneous improvised theatre in which the audience are invited to share their own personal stories before watching their words transformed into live theatre before their eyes. Performances can be moving, challenging, funny, poignant and extraordinary!  

During a Tarte Noire performance, the audience are drawn together as they witness the enactments. Through this spontaneous improvised theatre form we seek to create art and beauty as a way of acknowledging the fullness of our human experience. We invite conversations between people where we can explore together and see reflected the reality and mystery of our lives. A space is created to enjoy listening deeply to each other. We have become aware that this work removes feelings of isolation and creates intimacy between people. Every voice is welcome.

Cost: £10 (£8 concessions) - As places are limited you are advised to book in advance. Click here to book your place
Time: Doors open at 6:30pm no admittance after 8.00pm.

In this 2 day mid-week workshop I will be teaching how to receive through the senses liberating your creative flow. You will benefit from my years as an Art Psychotherapist and Embodiment coach understanding the creative process and the neuroscience behind what allows painting and creativity to flow, rather than trying to get it right before and as it arrives on the canvas. We will paint the sea together - and discover opening our senses to see!

We will begin with guided relaxation into your creative with step by step support throughout your journey with your canvas and expressions. We will explore together liberation routes into trusting spontaneity.

Canvas, oil paints and mediums for use on the day are included. You will also have options to buy your own tubes of paint and quality, discounted canvases to take away.

Katie Sarra is passionate about painting and supporting people to reignite their creativity and overcome all that's been in the way of it flowing.
