Space to Be was created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, and toured across the UK from March – August 2021.
About Space to Be
Once upon a time, there was you and me…
Let your hands lead the way as they discover different textures and open up tiny universes.
Oily Cart’s Space to Be is a sensory show that we send to your home. It’s been created for and with disabled young people (aged 0-18) who experience the world in a sensory way, and their families.
You will unwrap the show over a week through a series of packages, bringing moments of wonder for you to enjoy individually, and together.
Space to Be explores each family’s unique story: our individual differences and how we are all connected like a constellation in the universe.
Described by A Younger Theatre as “a great experience bringing all your senses and really involving the whole family”. Read the full review here.
