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.
