Artistic Director, Natalya Martin, also works as an independent sensory practitioner. She was awarded the Boundless Accelerator Bursary in May 2019. Carnival is a new project that is being developed over 2019 - 2022. Carnival is an interactive installation that will creatively explore how mental health and emotional wellbeing affect the lives of teenagers and young adults with complex needs.
Carnival is set on a fictional island surrounded by a body of water, the island is getting ready for its annual carnival, inspired by traditional Caribbean carnival, and audiences will get to explore through live music, dance and colourful multi-sensory experiences. Natalya is working with other creatives of Caribbean heritage on the project including wonderful designer Camille Lesforis.
The installation aims to be a vibrant celebration of our lives and our differences.
