Morena koutou,
I hope you are having a wonderful week! I wanted to pass on details of our exciting new theatre production and wondered whether you could share it across your networks? This is a multisensory production for audiences with PMLD aged 10+. Each show is about 45 minutes long and is an explosion of the senses with live music and an incredible immersive set. We’ve already sold out three shows but are definitely keen to get some more audiences to see it! We will also tour this work in 2024 across the country. All the details are below including a poster attachment. Thanks so much in advance.
Spark LIVE touring Auckland August 2023.
Glass Ceiling Arts Collective’s new multisensory theatre production Spark LIVE is coming to theatre venues across Auckland in August. This new production is specifically for audiences with PMLD (Profound and multiple learning disabilities), their caregivers and whanau aged 10+ to adult.
SPARK tells the story of a teenage girl, with a heart condition isolated from the world during a pandemic as her mother tries to keep her from getting ill. Kate and her mum struggle to navigate their new normal as Kate longs to be reunited with her friends and most of all her beloved horses. Spark takes audiences on a journey of hope, love and the incredible connection between a human and their horse.
A theatre performance featuring kiwi sensation Jackie Clarke (Christmas in the Park, Once, Mamma Mia), Lily Mae Ivatt-Oakley (Down For Love) and acclaimed musician Sam Jones (Rhythm and Vines, Soundsplash). This production will wow audiences with its rich multisensory storyscape with things to touch, taste, and smell. Combining film, live music, bold staging with original songs by Sam Jones, this event is highly accessible so that audiences with PMLD can connect to the story in their own individual way.
