Coronavirus update: Due to the government’s recent advice to limit public gatherings and social activities, and in conversation with venues and schools, our performances of Sound Symphony at Bibu Festival and Edinburgh International Children’s Festival have been cancelled.
A co-production between Independent Arts Projects and Oily Cart.
Sound Symphony is a new, highly interactive, sensory performance made especially for young audiences on the autistic spectrum.
A highly theatrical classical music concert unravels into a playfully wild and highly interactive celebration of sounds. Audiences experience live cello, marimba, clarinet and bassoon music, soundscapes moving around them, flying rose petals, bubble wrap symphonies, singing fish and sound shoes!
The performance is low capacity to be able to accommodate and engage young people with the most complex needs, 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
