Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Storm tells the story of the magician Prospero, his apprentice Ariel and the creature Caliban. Bamboozle’s enchanting production has been carefully designed to accommodate a wide-ranging audience including those from across the autistic spectrum.
Using elements of The Tempest and a limited amount of Shakespeare’s language, Storm tells a dramatic story of the sea, ships, islands and magic.
Audience members will be welcomed into the performance space with relaxing music and during the performance will be invited to interact with the actors and the setting. The production is designed to enable individuals to engage with the story in their own time and at their own pace.
Working closely with The Hullabaloo we are pleased to offer a range of performances to enable a wide variety of children to enjoy the performance.
The Autism specific performances are intimate shows for a maximum group size of 6 children accompanied by their teachers, carers, or family group. These are suitable for children who can be described as hard to reach.
The Relaxed Performances are open to all families and are particularly suitable for those who would be more comfortable in a relaxed setting where you are free to get up, move around and make noise if you want to. These performances will welcome larger audience groups, up to 40 audience members.
Wednesday 3 & Thursday 4 October
