Eyes see, fingers touch,

Noses breathe in deep,

Tongues taste, ears hear,

Bodies ready- leap!

What’s this? What does it look like? How does it feel? Does it smell nasty, or taste nice? Does it make a noise?

Join two dancers and a live musician as they use their eyes and ears, noses and mouths, fingers and feet to discover a world of play that makes the ordinary extraordinary.

FIVE is a playful exploration of our five human senses through dance, movement and live music. Created by Derbyshire-based family theatre specialists WinterWalker, this warm, funny and inclusive show is a perfect introduction to live performance for children age 3 to 6 and their grown-ups.

“Little mouths were open as they were absolutely mesmerised by the entire performance.”

There is a dedicated Relaxed Performance on Wednesday 7 August at 1:30pm but due to the non-verbal, sensory and visual nature of the show there is a relaxed atmosphere during all performances.

This is a non-verbal performance suitable for Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing audiences.
