Down to Earth: a production for young PMLD audiences
“Wonderful, imaginative, funny and gentle. Lovely singing and music – sensitive to such a range of needs”.
-Jo Willis and daughter at The Egg, Bath
TOURING TO UK SEN SCHOOLS 3 Dec 2018 – 1 Feb 2019
Using Bamboozle’s own immersive style, Down to Earth is an interactive, multi-sensory production inspired by the Land Army girls of World War II, where children can experience a closeness with nature.
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.
Each 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.
Bamboozle’s PMLD productions are designed to cater for groups of up to 6 children who have profound and multiple learning disabilities and their teachers/carers/family groups. The performance lasts for 40 minutes and is designed for the 6 – 14 age range; however we are able to adapt the show for other ages if required. The show is designed to be particularly suitable for children who use a wheelchair.
