To the Moon and Back

SEND School Performances

Event Information

Create imaginary worlds in this immersive, participatory experience inspired by the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. 

We are pleased to present a limited number of performances of this special production for SEND school groups. 
With a simple knock on a front door, your students will share a multi-sensory journey of discovery into interactive spaces of touch, colour, sound and special effects. You’ll encounter props and scenes that conjure the natural world, made of unusual and tactile materials, from feather rain to velvet stars. You’ll also be shown ideas on how everyday objects can be turned into tools for creativity and fun back in school, or at home. 

Artistic Director and founder of M-SET, Paula Manning invents delightful installations combining live music, drama, visual arts and design that stimulates the senses. 

In this participatory, promenade experience participants are encouraged to interact and explore the installation.
