MIRROR MIRROR toured special schools and arts venues across the UK in Autumn 2016 and Summer 2017.

MIRROR MIRROR is an immersive adventure for 3-19 year olds and comes in two distinct versions:

1. For children and young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities

2. For those on the autism spectrum

Take a seat in Oily Cart’s extra-special salon, designed to make you feel beautiful inside and out!

MIRROR MIRROR’s multi-sensory beauty parlour is a chance to be pampered and get involved in messy play. Soft make-up brushes glide across faces, warm soapy water washes over skin, and mud-packs are massaged into hands in Oily Cart’s production for children and young people with complex disabilities. It’s a world of sparkling light and magical mirrors, complemented by the aroma of perfume and accompanied by live music from a full-sized harp. MIRROR MIRROR is an immersive, interactive treat from head to toe.
