educational resources

As we create shows, we will provide lesson plans and ideas based on our shows so that school groups that attend performances can use these to tie in 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.

It is important to see how venues and programmers encourage an inclusive offer and by creating this work we are hoping to raise the profile of the work that is necessary 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.
