Tansy Troy has lived and worked in India for the past seven years, nesting often at Triveni where she offers a range of performances and workshops for both children and adults. 
As a performer, she has toured the world, making music and delivering poetic plays on the stages of London's Wigmore Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Barbican Centre; and India's Triveni, Ranga Shankara and Kukduko Festivals to name but a few. 
She has recently published a collection of poetry, Ratnakosha (Red River Press) and works closely with Delhi Poetry Slam. 
Tansy creates larger than life fabric masks for her many performances, sketching with watercolours in preparation for these. 
For over a year, she has been developing a body of 'bird' art, celebrating India's vast indigenous and migratory Bird population. 
Places are limited and promise to go fast so fly to the link and book your perch today!

‘My kids flourished under the Tara workshops at Triveni centre. Tansy is able to magically coax the performer out from the shy children too. The best part is the kids do everything themselves -on stage and off stage from making the props and even doing their own makeup on the day of the performance.  Thank you for taking them under your wing Tansy.’

-Sarah Jacob, NDTV Present, Triveni Playshop Parent


‘Tansy's workshops have this magical quality to get into the skin of the character effortlessly without making it look hard or laboured. My son looks forward to her workshops!’

- Shantala, Triveni Playshop Parent


‘We met Tara the compass crow when our family just arrived to India from Spain, I enrolled my kids to the workshop, and it’s fantastic! They enjoyed the creativity and activities. All family we
love Tansy’s workshop, it’s makes perfect connection for our children their experience of life from Europe to Asia, also let them enjoy the adventure and diversity of culture.’

- Yu, Triveni Playshop Parent


‘The zest, the zeal we see in the kids performing the Tara Show is out of this world. They literally enjoy performing their characters. Their excitement makes the show more interesting. I always love to watch Niyati performing so confidently and naturally. The backdrops, sounds, lights,
costumes and kids performing makes the show magnificently mesmerising. 
Good luck to the team Tara. Keep Rocking!

- Sandhya, Parent of Young Performer

‘We absolutely love the workshop! Found it so interactive and inspiring. It was amazing how Tansy could handle so many expressive children with her fabulous team. The way Tansy and her team incorporated dance and costume and acting and storytelling was really remarkable. We just
simply cannot wait to the next workshop. It was also fabulous to experience Triveni too and
have a lovely coffee and healthy snack while waiting to pick up we also appreciated the
opportunity to explore the galleries after the class and see some truly inspiring works.’

- Meetu, Triveni Playshop Parent


‘After each Playshop performance, I've sat with wonder at how so much fun, beauty, imagination, learning and growing can be packed into a few hours of playshopping!!! My daughter has absolutely relished her sessions with Tansy. We couldn't have asked for a more engaging, inspiring and gentler introduction to theater and performing for a young child.’

- Anusha, Triveni Playshop Parent


‘The workshop with the children at Tara Homes led by Tansy was the most wonderful way for
the children to step into a world of mask making, becoming birds. Tansy introduced them to a
range of activities - from icebreakers to movement games - which made them feel at ease. They started making bird sounds, movements and sang poems together of real and mythical birds. For many of them it was the first time that they were doing an activity where they were using a different paper which could be molded to different shapes and stitched over in combination with textiles to create bird masks. Many also stitched for the first time. A new paper, new skills and a new materiality of this kind offered to them a new way of experiencing and understanding art making. And while making masks was only the start of this activity, the performative aspect of wearing a mask was also very exciting for the children. Many of them named their birds and also shared which superpowers they had. For example, one child spoke of their bird with a superpower to be able to go in and out of past and future, while another created a god of all other birds! Thank you Tansy for a very engaging workshop with the children of Artreach at
Tara Homes.’

‘I played the character of the Shadow princess in the play called THE COMPASS CROW. I loved playing this role . Shadow princess had such lovely lines to say in the play. I was scared in the beginning but once I started practicing the lines I was confident that I will easily play this role.I loved it and I was so happy to be a party of this Show.’

- Vanya, Young Ranga Shankara Performer


‘The Tara performance was one of a kind, with captivating costumes, a splendid and a meaningful storyline. One of my favourite parts was the fusion of the tabla and the bird sounds - it just took us to a different world.’

- Maira, Young Triveni Audience Member


‘My experience with Tara playshops has been really fun, especially thanks to Tansy! Memorising my characters lines and learning exactly how to deliver them in a way that gets a reaction out of the audience is really satisfying, especially when it's made enjoyable. The stories are unique and the handmade costumes really add to the final product. This was a great experience for me, and I'm sure it's been just as good for everyone else who has taken part! I would love to participate in further productions if given the chance!’

-Maya, Young Ranga Shankara Performer
