Stranden is based on the poem "Dover Beach" written by Matthew Arnold and the audience is invited to the scenery where the poem takes place, a poetic beach café by the sea.
British director Tim Webb’s work is multisensory, playful and interactive. The set design is also adapted with custom-made seatings for the audience, and newly composed music is performed live on stage by the actors. The show is built up in several layers to be able to communicate with children who are labelled as having complex needs including those with profound and multiple disabilities.
At least 1 accompanying person per person.
For children and young people with PMLD
