“Made me laugh and cry and feel such joy. Such a beautiful experience, magical all the way through and really felt part of something special” Audience member
Glimpsing Air Pockets is an immersive, multi-sensory dance theatre production. Based on the saying, “You can’t stop birds from flying over your head, but you can definitely prevent them from building a nest in your hair”, the work captures the contributions of the children and combines them within the set, music and sensory equipment.
The work brings the outdoors and the beauty of nature indoors to the audience, capturing the children’s personal contributions who are in care within the hospital; including the set, musical elements, film and live performance. The vision is that many children will be inspired by their contributions being reflected back to them within the final performance.
