Presented by Sensorium Theatre
Produced by Performing Lines WA

Sensorium Theatre, Australia’s only theatre company making work specifically designed for young audiences with disability and their friends, invites children to roll the dice and set out along a safe, exhilarating pathway into the unknown. Inside a giant puzzle-box of illusions, kooky-carnival friends with magic in their pockets lead audiences into an immersive multi-sensory wonderland of fantastical large-scale projections, strange tiny delights and infectious live music.

Every child’s curiosity is celebrated and rewarded with wondrous surprises. The discovery is the journey. As boxes reveal boxes within boxes each child is given the opportunity to find a magical version of themselves. Wonderbox micro-moments of whole worlds in a matchbox lead into macro universes where everyone, their face reflected in the stars of the Milky Way, is revealed as wonderful!

After more than 12 years of connecting, engaging and captivating thousands of young audiences with disability nationally and internationally with their magical multi-sensory immersive shows, Perth-based Sensorium Theatre continues to break open barriers to truly inclusive arts experiences with their most ambitious show yet. Wonderbox aims to be accessible to all children and every child (and the child in everyone) is invited to look inside the box and find their rightful place.

All performances of Wonderbox are relaxed, allowing audiences to sit or move freely within the performance space and adjacent chill-out zone. The performers use multi-modal communication, including key signs, natural gestures, visual symbols, and minimal verbal language. The show is highly visual with a rich aural environment and many opportunities for individual engagement and interaction through the senses. Wonderbox is an inclusive show, and Sensorium will adapt the work to the audience. We welcome interested audiences to call our friendly Box Office team to discuss their specific requirements when securing tickets. This show has been created for children with all abilities and is fully accessible for those with wheelchairs.
