We create performances using masks, adaptations of great classics or our own original productions. Our shows work for a variety of audiences and venues.
Our masks are made by Tracey Boot or Hélène Lenoir.
Alongside our creations, we offer events. Either a little event that can come directly after the show or larger events that can be programmed parallel to a show.

Comédienne, factrice de masques, metteur en scène et formatrice
It is to Tracey Boot, the backbone of Theatre Transformations, that we owe our artistic value: she creates the masks, writes the scripts, acts and/or directs the shows.
My grandmother was a singer and craftswoman and my great-aunt was a storyteller and writer. As young girls, they traveled the Highlands, performing in theatrical shows for rural communities... Later, they passed on to me and my sisters their skills and passion for art, singing, writing, acting and costume design. These early experiences created my thirst for acting and, more importantly, my need for a female environment in which to create and work.
Tracey has a degree in Theatre Studies from the University of Manchester.
She also trained with Michael Chase, Jacques Lecoq, Donato Sartori, Monica Pagneaux, John Wright, Stéphane Müh and Haim Isaac.
Theatre Transformations was founded in Manchester, England in September 1991, but its roots are in the Highlands of Scotland. Tracey was born in Scotland and spent most of her summers in the Highlands where she discovered the joys of storytelling, theatre and song.
