Calling artists from all disciplines: Musicians, Set, Sound and Lighting Designers, Performers, Puppeteers, Dancers, Storytellers, Textile Artists, Visual Artists

Are you interested in making interactive, immersive work that enables universal access for audiences including those with disabilities?
Are you interested in collaborating cross-culturally?
We are looking for artists from all disciplines to take part in Research and Development sessions exploring the idea of making a new interactive multi-sensory performance installation that is a collaboration between Australia’s Sensorium Theatre and artists from Singapore.

Using a piece from the National Museum of Singapore collection as a stimulus, Sensorium Theatre Artistic Directors Michelle Hovane and Francis Italiano will explore ideas and discuss the principles of multi-sensory theatre making for universal access.
Following this 2-day masterclass, selected artists will be invited to gain practical experience assisting Sensorium Theatre performers to deliver workshops and performances to children with disabilities during a season of their show, Oddysea. This will take place 4th-18th November at The Artground.
