Can you spot Storm in Imaginate’s film?
Storm: a production designed for children on the autistic specturm visits Imaginate.
29 – 31 May 2017
We’re delighted that we’ll be visiting Imaginate, Edinburgh’s International Children’s Festival, for a second time with our production Storm. We’ll be visiting three Edinburgh special schools with the production; each of our performances is lead by the needs of the audience, and is tailored moment by moment by our team of artists.
Inspired by Shakespeare’s Tempest, Storm takes the audience to a magical island, where flotsam and jetsam are brought in on the waves and caught up in breeze. We meet Prospero the magician, his apprentice Ariel and the creature Caliban. Each believes the island is there’s. Who does it really belong to? We’ll find out after the storm.
This mesmerising production uses a mixture of patient mix of invitation and interaction to engage with children and young people across all levels of the autistic spectrum. Interactions are led by the participants. As the story flows, the audience are able to wander within the set, and choose how and where to experience the performance as our artists meet them where they are.

Down to Earth goes Down Under!
Arts Centre Melbourne
6 – 11 June 2017
Bamboozle are thrilled to be travelling to Australia for the first time with our production, Down to Earth, designed for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
We’ll be visiting Arts Centre Melbourne from the 6th – 11th of June with performances for local school and for families.
Children will be welcomed individually, experience the feel of a vegetable patch, dance in their chairs with the Land Girls and meet a mischievous mole who causes mayhem! They will be transported to a magical forest where shadows slide across the floor, and wildlife rushes through the trees.
Every moment will be tailored to each child’s needs by a team of Bamboozle performers who are hugely experienced in adapting to, and interacting with, children and young people who have a variety of complex and differing needs.
