Hop on board our spaceship and get ready for blast off! An interactive sensory space adventure for young explorers with disabilities.
Calling all budding astronauts! Become a pilot, engineer or navigator as we whoosh across the galaxy for an interstellar adventure for the whole family.
Join our crew to explore outer space, taste space food, experience hyperspace and travel all the way to the mysterious Planet X. We’ll have to work as a team to repair the ship and return to Earth.
Whoosh! is an immersive and multi-sensory performance that puts children at the centre of the action. Kids board a stunning custom-built spaceship to co-pilot an intergalactic adventure.
Created by pioneering theatre makers Sensorium Theatre, this highly-tailored production is suitable for children with a broad range of access needs aged 5yrs+, including those with multiple and complex needs and those on the autism spectrum.
Please note: There are potentially exciting sound and light changes in Whoosh! that are announced as part of the show. Children can prepare for these with our digital app. These include:
- "Blast Off": light fog haze (non allergenic)
- "Emergency Landing" (slow moving red lights and siren)
- Planet X - UV Light and low fog haze
Children can sample "space food" - a list of ingredients can be provided. Essential oils are diffused in the environment. These can be modified to accommodate allergies.
Sensorium theatre have developed an explainer guide about the Whoosh experience that you can view and share with participants ahead of the event.
