Performing the Freak is Wattle & Daub's public engagement event that accompanies The Depraved Appetite of Tarrare the Freak. The show's artists perform extracts from the piece, and are joined onstage by project partners and invited speakers to discuss issues around medicine and monstrosity that inform the show.
