A gentle and immersive multi-sensory experience for babies aged 0 - 18 months
about the production
Come in, relax, find a space and settle. Slowly, a shimmering surface emerges. What does it look like? How does it move? Listen, what can you hear? Welcome to a world of shiny things. Welcome to Glisten! Glisten is an interactive performance for babies aged 0-18 months and their grown-ups. The audience are taken on a gentle and immersive journey exploring the world of reflective materials wrapped up in an ambient soundscape of evocative yet laid-back music. Watch as the empty space of the theatre fills with colour, sounds and surprises, creating a sensory landscape ready to explore after the performance is over.
