Sensorium Theatre for Big Apple
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.
