The one-hour piece is performed to a seated audience of up to 10 people with learning disabilities plus their carers.
The three performers use an interactive, multi-sensory, non-verbal approach to take the audience on a journey through the seasons. Projection is used extensively – on huge and tiny scales. Live and recorded music plays throughout.
People are given things to smell, touch and taste, and are welcomed into a relaxing space where they can enjoy themselves. People are made to feel confident responding to the performance in their own way.
Family and carers enjoy sharing relaxed moments with the people they care for, and are inspired to refresh the way they interact with them.
