“Oily Cart’s unique form of theatre is highly interactive and multi-sensory. Challenging accepted definitions of theatre and audience, they create innovative, multi-sensory and highly participatory productions by transforming everyday environments into colourful, tactile ‘wonderlands’. Using hydro-therapy pools and trampolines, aromatherapy and puppetry together with a vast array of multi-sensory techniques, they create original and highly specialised theatre for our young audiences.” Dr Andrea Creech, Institute of Education, University of London.

Oily Cart audiences include the very young (from 6 months to 6 years) and young people with the most complex disabilities including Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD) and Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) but their methods apply to many others who experience barriers in communication and socialization. The session will be led by Tim Webb MBE, the artistic director of the company for 37 years, and will include video examples and hands-on experience of Oily Cart techniques and materials.
