Location

Situation

These young people often have few opportunities to access theatre that is appropriate for them. They are often excluded either through physical or attitudinal barriers, or because work is not accessible to them. LIGHT SHOW has been designed specifically for these young people, and our performers utilise methods and techniques that actively involve and engage them. The demand for our work currently far outstrips our capacity - for every special school that we visit, we have 9 other requests.

Solution

We are developing successful, non-conventional methods of communication with these young people, many of whom are non-verbal, do not have a high public profile and often have 24 hour care needs. The multi-sensory techniques used in the production can then be used in the everyday interactions between the young people and their carers and teachers. This creates a lasting legacy from the project which will be beneficial for the long-term education of the young people.
