As we create shows, we also provide lesson plans so that school groups that attend performances can use them with the National Curriculum.
We work extensively with schools and inclusive practitioners to develop and create highly imaginative and bespoke pieces for neuro-diverse children and young people.
Debbie's experience and knowledge of creating pieces for audiences with ASC and PMLD has allowed her to dedicate time to work alongside special schools as well as her skilled performers and creatives to merge the freedom of creativity to connect with children who might see the world differently from neuro-typical children.
The pieces has an inclusive approach from the creation, making to the performing by listening and ensuring all voices are heard throughout the process.
We offer venues and programmers an inclusive offer and by creating this work we hope to increase audience engagement in their regions.
For Alluriat we have provided the poem on which the performance is based along with some extracts from the script for children to work with. They can be downloaded below.
As part of our virtual homeschooling programme, we streaming our wonderful show, "Alluriat" to watch at home with your loved ones.
You can also you find teaching resources that supports your child's learning. So, you can all have loads of fun at home at your own leisure as well as complimenting the National Curriculum for keystages 1 & 2.
"Book shelves, reading spaces and meeting rooms will transform into a watery wonderland to tell the tale of Alluriat - a bond that seems unbreakable beneath the waves. Told by two performers Purvi Parmar and Jennifer Kay - using puppetry, illusion and physical theatre, this bold new show fuses stunning visuals and state-of-the-art digital technology to explore themes of love and division, nurture and abandonment and environmental change."
All are free of charge until we hear further news about Covid-19 as we all know how tricky it can be.
Don't forget to share the work you might do based on "Alluriat".
We'd love to see your creations!

Book shelves, reading spaces and meeting rooms will transform into a watery wonderland to tell the tale of Alluriat - a bond that seems unbreakable beneath the waves. Told by two performers – Purvi Parmar and Jennifer Kay - using puppetry, illusion and physical theatre, this bold new show fuses stunning visuals and state-of-the-art digital technology to explore themes of love and division, nurture and abandonment and environmental change.
Alluriat will take you down into the deep. Meet creatures of light never seen before. But beware, you may transform into a fish!
A tale of twins torn apart by a fearsome storm. Will they find light in the depths? Children will meet the characters before entering their sunken world.
Alluriat is performed in a unique mobile venue which can be quickly erected in almost any space (4m x 7m minimum!)
Even in a busy brightly lit library, children can enter a new world, with live puppetry, projections and holographic trickery!
Alluriat was developed as an R&D piece in 2016 and delighted children at Oldham Library Theatre. Since then it has evolved as a mobile show and encompasses technologies to dazzle, thought-provoking choreography and an original score.
"It is not often that I come across a production for young people that has such high production values and concentrates as much on visuals and sound as on the story and characters."
