Sen­so­rium The­atre for Big Ap­ple

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Dance -

WA the­atre com­pany Sen­so­rium The­atre will make its in­ter­na­tional de­but at New York City’s Lin­coln Cen­ter next April.

The com­pany, which presents sen­sory the­atre for chil­dren with pro­found and mul­ti­ple dis­abil­i­ties, will per­form its Help­mann-nom­i­nated pro­duc­tion Od­dysea as part of the Big Um­brella Fes­ti­val, the world’s first fes­ti­val for chil­dren on the autism spec­trum and their fam­i­lies.

The in­ter­ac­tive Od­dysea is an un­der­wa­ter ad­ven­ture that takes chil­dren with spe­cial needs and their fam­i­lies from the beach to the bot­tom of the sea, with lots to touch, smell, taste and hear.

Sen­so­rium The­atre co-artis­tic di­rec­tor Michelle Ho­vane said it had been a joy to share Od­dysea with com­mu­ni­ties around Aus­tralia.

“The op­por­tu­nity to present along­side some of the world’s best sen­sory the­atre com­pa­nies is just in­cred­i­ble,” she said.
