A journey of discovery across Torbay.
A new type of arts event is coming to South Devon this September. The Tale will guide you on a journey of discovery around the coastal area of Torbay – from the streets of Torquay, through hidden coves and historic harbours, to the quarry of Berry Head Nature Reserve.
Along the way, you’ll encounter artworks and performances by artists of international acclaim, made especially for Torbay. Inspired by the ideas of writer Philip Hoare, whose boyhood experiences of Torbay shaped his future, The Tale offers the chance to experience the hidden stories, sounds and dreams of the bay like never before.
Sound recordist Chris Watson, artists Ellen Gallagher and Marc Rees, performers Claire Cunningham and Ingri Fiksdal and performance group one step at a time like this are amongst the ten artists who have responded to Philip Hoare’s mesmerising text (which draws upon his boyhood experiences of Torbay) to produce new works for The Tale.
An adventurous arts event for explorers of all ages.
The Tale will take place over three long weekends in September: 8-10 Sept, 15-17 Sept, 22-24 Sept 2017.
Tickets: £15.00 – £22.50
