To kick off the Winter/Spring Families program comes a work that asks children to hop on board a custom-built spaceship in Whoosh! For one day only, Saturday 29 June, children will be taken across the galaxy for an interstellar adventure in The Pavilion at Arts Centre Melbourne with blast off at 10am and 12pm.

Whoosh! is an immersive and highly-tailored, multi-sensory performance suitable for all children, including those with a broad range of access requirements, multiple and complex needs and those on the autism spectrum. Putting children with disabilities at the centre of the action is what makes this work so unique.

On this tour of outer space, children will board a stunning custom-built spaceship to co-pilot an interstellar adventure where they will taste space food, experience hyperspace and travel to the mysterious Planet X.

With an impressive set and pioneering use of technology, including a new digital app that allows children to familiarise themselves with the story and characters prior to seeing the show, this is Sensorium Theatre’s most ambitious production to date.

Using Sensorium’s trademark inclusive performance style, families can attend and enjoy the performance together knowing the additional needs of their children are at the forefront of the performers’ minds. The 10am performance is recommended for children with autism and the 12pm performance is recommended for children with profound and multiple disabilities.
