Sing Me to the Sea is an immersive multisensory adventure for children and young people with complex needs. It is performed in hydropools with 3 audience members per show, each with an adult companion – with everyone in the water!

Three performers take the audience on a magical journey of exquisite harmony singing and gentle water play with the sessions designed so that they can respond to each individual child.  Each child has an adult guest in the water who share the experience with the child.

Immersive and multi-sensory, the performance aims to both soothe and stimulate, exploring a range of aural, visual, tactile and kinaesthetic experiences.  Much more than an interactive play session, the 20 minutes of the show is a magical journey of water and sound.

a unique production which engages individuals with even the most profound level of disability in an enriching musical and artistic experience. As a society, we aim to remove barriers to participation; we make art galleries and concert halls physically accessible. However, for so many children, their disabilities go beyond the physical.  They may be able to physically access buildings which house the arts, however, the content of these buildings is not often meaningful to them. Sing Me to the Sea brought an experience of the arts to the children of St Catherine’s. It was beautiful, it was awe inspiring and it was meaningful. Physiotherapist, St Catherine’s School, County Wicklow
