The Flames Information Session

Tricky Hat are welcoming people to join their fun and freeing performance company The Flames, to create a show that challenges pre-conceived ideas of how older people think, and what they aspire to!

The Flames Information Session

About The Flames Information Session

Are you a creatively minded over 50-year-old? Do you have a story to tell? Do you want to try something you’ve never done before?

Tricky Hat is recruiting people age 50+ to join their multimedia performance company The Flames. We use performance, film and especially composed music to explore stories about life after 50, challenging our perceptions of ageing.

No experience is necessary and sessions are free of charge.

Express an interest by e-mail to info@trickyhat.com

There will be weekly sessions throughout September/October led by Tricky Hat creative team. The full schedule can be found on our website.

These workshops feed the fire that becomes the final multi-media event on Saturday 12th October, 3pm & 7pm at CCA.

Flames participants said:
“Being a Flame gave me the confidence to perform and write about my own experience.”

“I had great fun, met new people, felt energised and inspired.”

“It was an inclusive process. No prior skills or talents were sought so it was fantastic that so many were fostered and emerged. Tricky Hat artists created an environment that was great fun, inclusive, and sensitive to people's emotional needs.”

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Flames Information Session are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
