Abstract: Tarrare is a creative practice based research project initiated by Director and Senior Lecturer Sita Calvert-Ennals, based upon the research material developed by Dr. Laura Purcell-Gates, which uses primary medical research and archive material to explore the true story of 18th-century French medical anomaly, Tarrare. The Depraved Appetite of Tarrare the Freak is the original puppet chamber opera, which became the final output of the research, and toured the UK in 2015 and again in 2017, and was funded by the Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England. 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. This collection comprises a single-component output with contextualsing information. Evidence of the central output, the directed performance of The Depraved Appetite of Tarrare the Freak, is provided in the form of a full performance video. Contextualising information includes a 300-word statement, research timeline, research questions, documentation of performances and rehearsals in photos and further video, promotional materials, storyboarding materials and and a production schedule.
