Role: Sensory Practitioner

Inspired by the statements and imagery within the  Sense Arts Connect Manifesto created by Tanya Raabe-Webber - I wrote a poem called "Golden is the Morning", which draws on the experience of mental health and wellbeing. From this, I developed and produced visuals to go alongside the poem, and two sensory-based experiences for people to try at home.

Carbon Theatre: Sea Girl R&D

Role: Sensory Consultant and Performer

 

The original idea for Sea Girl had been to explore the achievement of Laura Dekker, who holds the world record for being the youngest person to have solo circumnavigated the globe. 

The nature of the adventure story means we are able to communicate the story through sights, smells, sounds and textures - perfect for children who best experience and learn through different senses.
