PRODUCTIONS 2018/19

Down to Earth

Bamboozle’s beautiful PMLD production

Touring nationwide to schools and arts venues 3rd December 2018 – 1st February 2019

Down to Earth was first developed by Bamboozle in 2013, and has had subsequent tours over the years, visiting schools throughout the UK, appearing at TakeOff Festival, the Edinburgh International Children’s Festival, Shanghai Children’s Art Theatre and Arts Centre Melbourne. After the production’s international success, we are now re-touring the production to special schools and arts venues in a UK tour.

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.

Our team of Bamboozle performers are hugely experienced in adapting to, and interacting with, students who have a variety of complex needs.

Bamboozle’s school visits provide up to 4 x 40 minute performances throughout the school day, each performance caters for maximum group sizes of 6 children and their teachers/carers. The performance is designed or the 6 – 14 age range and is particularly designed to be suitable for children who use a wheelchair.

We have a limited number of spaces available on the tour: places are secured on a first-come-first-served basis when travel allows.

For more details on how to book, email Jade Frost, Tour Co-ordinator, jade@bamboozletheatre.co.uk.

Other productions

 
Gentle Giant: a PMLD production
 
An adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s enchanting story designed for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
 
Gentle Giant incorporates all the senses.  Students experience live music and songs, puppetry, a variety of textures and smells, ending with a wild dance in wheelchairs.
 

Storm: an AS production

Storm uses elements of Shakespeare’s Tempest and weaves them into a dramatic sequence embracing the sea and ships, islands and magic, as well as using Shakespeare’s language. The audience will be immersed in the action and invited to touch props, wander within the set, and will be able to interact at their own pace and level.
 

Hansel & Gretel: an MLD/SLD production

 
 
 
Behind the trees, in the shadows – two glinting lights. Eyes? An owl perhaps, or wolf? Who knows? It is a time of desperation for the Woodcutter’s family. War and famine stalk the land. Something needs to happen or they will all perish. Hansel and Gretel take matters into their own hands and, left to their own devices in the forest, discover that they can do more than anyone thought they could. Even themselves. Join them as they encounter dangers, escape from the forest, overcome the evil witch and surprise their parents.
 

The Girl and The Goat: a PMLD production

 

The Girl and The Goat follows the journey of a girl and a baby goat through an Indian village. The audience will be immersed in the sights and sounds of India; aromas and massage, rich textures and vibrant colours in this engaging story of friendship.

Moon Song: an ASC production

 

In this enchanting space-themed production, audience members are welcomed with relaxing music into the performance space. The production tells the story of Megan, who falls asleep and dreams of travelling to the moon where she sees comets, shooting stars and silvery tube creatures.

This performance has been designed to accommodate the very wide range of abilities within the autistic spectrum. Our continuing research into performances for ASC audiences has indicated there is a need for a performance that is accessible to all levels of the spectrum.

Meadow Land: a PMLD production

Each audience member is welcomed by name in the performance’s opening song before moving through a flock of birds to the meadow. Here, they will encounter butterflies and dragonflies, animals and scented flowers as they become immersed in the multi-sensory magic of the Meadow Land.

Each participant will be able to explore and engage at their own level and in their own time during this delightful show.
