Playful Tiger has been made specifically for children and young people who are profoundly autistic and mainly non-verbal, although they may use language in an echoing or associative way or by vocalising. Other means of communication that they may rely upon include the use body language, symbols and signs.
It tells the story of a troubled family whose world turns upside down when a tiger visits. It’s chaotic, it’s wild, but brilliantly fun. Interacting directly with the audience Playful Tiger tells the story through the eyes of the child, creating opportunities for a two-way response between audience and performers as the family embarks on a sensory journey with colour, dynamic movement and a compelling score that the audience can share.
