About Sound Symphony

A co-production between Independent Arts Projects and Oily Cart.

Sound Symphony is a new, highly interactive, sensory performance made especially for and with Autistic young people.

The performance is a playful journey through music, sound and silence. The show provides a sensory rich environment, where you feel music through your whole body. It celebrates making music your own way, weaving together live classical instruments, singing and a wide range of weird and wonderful sounds.

The performance is low capacity to be able to accommodate and engage young people with the most barriers to access, who may find even a relaxed performance artistically inaccessible. 

Originally produced by Independent Arts Projects in association with Capital Theatres, Edinburgh with support from Creative Scotland and Paul Hamlyn.
