Ability-Inclusive Sensory Theatre
Ability-Inclusive Sensory Theatre is an emerging genre within Theatre for Young Audiences which creates work from the ground-up for children on the autism spectrum and with other cognitive disabilities. Through sensory immersion, empathetic improvisation, and a structure which focuses on soft transitions and consent, artists are able to create rich theatrical landscapes for audiences who are not served well in a tradition theatre space.
