Event description

Description

The show ...

Presented by The DH Ensemble and Jess Kaufman

How can a small sheep become a big orange balloon?

With a lot of imagination and determination - anything is possible!

Mathilda is a little grey sheep in a little grey world. Her herd is content to munch clovers, but Mathilda's mind is full of questions. When an orange balloon makes a surprise appearance on the farm, Mathilda discovers there is more to who she is than being a grey sheep! As she explores what it means to be orange, Mathilda leads us all on a journey of self-discovery and the joys of self-expression.

Join Mathilda, her herd, and our narrators on stage and see how, with a little imagination and a big open mind, anything is possible! With a diverse cast of Deaf and hearing actors, Mathilda's tactile, fully realised world is welcoming and fully accessible to Deaf and hearing children and families through the use of spoken English, sign language, and creative captions and animation.

This production was created for audiences aged 3 to 8 and their families, however TouchBase Pears is an inclusive venue and all are welcome.


The venue ...

All our performances take place in a relaxed environment, which means that we will take a relaxed approach to noise, movement and the use of assistive technology

A variety of seating and spaces will be available, including chairs, soft chairs, beanbags and floor mats.

All performances include a range of communication methods, which vary by production. If you have a query or an access requirement which is not listed, please contact us no less than 1 month prior to the performance at access@touchbasepears.org.uk

You are welcome to use your own technology (without sound please) if this helps you to enjoy the production.

A touch tour/familiarisation session is available in the space (30 minutes) before each performance. You are welcome to take photographs during this time (though please not during the performance), as long as these are for your private use only.

A ‘chill-out’ zone will be available outside the space for those who need to take a little time out before, during or after the show.

A visual story for the event will be available via email from 2 weeks before the performance date. If you would like to request a visual story or have any other specific access requests or queries, please contact us with as much notice as possible at access@touchbasepears.org.uk
