Oily Cart returned to Manchester International Festival for a third time from 27th June – 8th July 2011 with a new commission to create a production for children with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities or on the autistic spectrum.
With the support of Seven Scent, fragrance creators for PZ Cussons, Oily Cart transformed four Manchester special schools into oases of beautiful fragrances and wonderlands of evocative perfumes.
Oily Cart then toured a version of GORGEOUS in Autumn 2011 to SEN primary and secondary schools, taking a team of all-singing, all-dancing beauticians around the UK in order to create a series of stylish transformations.
