Audiences are set to be taken on a multi-sensory journey through tunnels of light at Norwich Arts Centre on Sunday.
Norwich-based theatre company Frozen Light is presenting the show Tunnels which has been created for teenage audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities who may find it challenging to access mainstream productions due to the traditional conventions of theatre going.
Tunnels tells the story of Lana who is searching for the light that has mysteriously disappeared from her city. Leaving the place that she calls home, Lana travels deep below the city into an underground world filled with music, smells and curious characters.
The show has been co-created by artistic directors Amber Onat Gregory and Lucy Garland and has an original score by Al Watts.
Lucy Garland, from Frozen Light, said: “As a Norwich artist I’m so excited that Tunnels is coming to my home town and can provide an accessible theatre experience for young people with learning disabilities in my local community.”
Pasco-Q Kevlin, Norwich Arts Centre director, said: “Norwich Arts Centre is really excited to be presenting this excellent show, made by Norwich artists and allowing us to seize this opportunity to engage with young people from a whole variety of backgrounds.”
With the support of house and the New Wolsey, Tunnels is touring 18 theatre venues across the UK.
• Tunnels is being performed at Norwich Arts Centre on Sunday at 11.30am and 2.30pm. Tickets £10. Visit www.norwichartscentre.co.uk
