A fabulous theatre group, Collar & Cuffs, who offer award-winning multi-sensory theatre for early years, primary and SEND/ESBD, came to Chailey Heritage Foundation to give THREE performances of their wonderfully interactive show: ‘Be Not Afeard: A sensory telling of The Tempest’
They are an inclusive theatre company and they offer performances that involve a wide range of audience members in terms of age and needs; some of the young people in Hanbury had already seen their performance in the Brighton Fringe Festival and really enjoyed it (see earlier news posting in May).
A few days after we went to Brighton I received an amazing email from their theatre director, Julia, offering to give three performances to the young people here at Chailey! (I obviously said YES PLEASE!)
They put up a special sensory tent in the courtyard behind Rennie (the admin staff there were quite excited!) and they did 2 performances in the morning and one in the afternoon (They even gave us information about how to construct our own sensory tent and we now have in class!)
The enthusiasm, high level of interaction and experience was awesome and ALL the young people were able to take part. Next year they are performing a sensory story of Alice in Wonderland – this is definitely a show not to miss!
