Sensory theatre practice is a way of capturing the imagination through the universal language of the senses, focusing on the atmosphere and expressing through light/shadow, sound/vibration, texture, taste and smells.

My aim is to find ways to create art, make discoveries and share this through sensorial exploration, innovation and shared story.

Connection and collaboration are central to my practice; between creators, learners or the audience.

I seek to make work that reaches through the senses, draws on the idea of intimate performance, empathy, relational work specific to space/place and embedding access into the creative process.

The aim of Sensory Theatre is to provide high quality arts projects that are accessible, inclusive and engaging through creating immersive and interactive sensory experiences.

Sensory Theatre Practice

Zya Kane is a long term facilitator of disability theatre and movement. She has recently been immersed in studies of sensory theatre. In this workshop, lead by Zya, we will create theatre through the senses of sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste. We will explore how these senses interact with memory to create storytelling in words and movement. Participants will work solo and in groups.
