Playful Tiger – to make a performance accessible

  • Arrangeras av: Scen:se och Bibu

Natasha Gilmore is the artistic director and choreographer at Barrowland Ballet in Scotland and Ellie Griffiths is the artistic leader at Oily Cart Theatre in London. In 2018, they worked together at Barrowland Ballet with the performance Playful Tiger which was an adaptation of the earlier work Tiger Tales. The performance was now made for children and young people who where profoundly autistic and mainly non-verbal.

The seminar will be about the artistic decisions behind making this type of work, how they worked together and about the process with creating a sensory engaging, playful space and how to provide an artistic collaboration with this audience.
