25th Birthday

2015 is Tamasha's 25th Birthday year - join us to celebrate!

There will be a number of opportunities to celebrate with us throughout the year - and to get involved so watch this space. Current events for the diary include:

10 July 2015 – Tamasha Day at Central St Martins - Taxi Tales
Join us for a day of performances and workshops to explore and showcase our new project Taxi Tales. Taxi Tales is an experimental site-specific community project in which Tamasha’s Co-Artistic Director Fin Kennedy is supporting playwright Ishy Din to work with real-life minicab drivers in Stockton-on-Tees to develop monologues for the drivers to deliver to customers in the backs of their cabs. A collaboration between Tamasha, ARC Stockton, Freedom Studios Bradford, Holy Mountain and Central Saint Martins College (CSM) the London phase of the project will see Central St Martins MA Dramatic Writing students in London writing monologues too and on 10th July the drivers will deliver these as part of the Tamasha day.

30 October 2015 – Tamasha's 25th Birthday at Richmix.
We’re hosting an extra special night at Rich Mix to truly celebrate. This is your chance to raise a glass, share memories and look ahead to the next 25.

The centrepiece for the celebrations will be a retrospective scratch performance of Tamasha’s greatest hits directed by Tamasha Developing Artist and Theatre Royal Stratford East Resident Director Pooja Ghai and selected by Tamasha’s Co-Founder Sudha Bhuchar and Artistic Director Fin Kennedy.

Tamasha is Britain’s foremost touring theatre company producing new plays inspired by the diversity of a globalised world. Our work places the voices of emerging and established artists from culturally diverse backgrounds centre-stage.

 

"Tamasha is a mirror reflecting a nation of continuing change and creativity, of mixings and mergings. British culture needs reminding it has always been global. Tamasha’s stirring, audacious work makes sure the nation never forgets what it is." Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, cultural commentator

“I am a writer and without Tamasha I’d still be a taxi driver. My voice as a northern Asian would be muted and my attempts to open a window on a largely unexplored world would be firmly shut.”
Ishy Din, writer of Snookered
