NHS70: Splish Splash Part of the NHS70 Festival
Part of the NHS70 Festival
National Theatre Wales & Oily Cart
Theatre company Oily Cart will create this multi-sensory, underwater, touring production for young people aged 3-19, performed in schools and a hospital.
Splish Splash will be a watery wonderland, a magical space where every sense is delighted. Hydro-therapy pools will be transformed by underwater lighting, clouds of bubbles drifting from below, curtains of perfumed spray, and live music played on floating pipes, with a sound that can be felt as much as heard.
There will be three versions: one for those with profound and multiple learning disabilities, another for those on the autism spectrum, and a third for the deafblind.
