Making Waves is an immersive multi-sensory dance theatre performance designed specifically for children & young people aged 8 to 13 years with mild to complex needs. This magical sea voyage sets sail in search of hidden treasure and along the way encounters rolling waves, sparkling fish and swooping gulls. Designed to be inclusive, audience members are seated in pods representing boats on stage, enabling everyone to become part of the adventure. The specially designed boats are suitable for wheelchair users.
