An immersive and multi-sensory performance that puts young explorers with disabilities at the centre of the action, as they become co-pilots of an interstellar adventure. 

In the Utzon Room 

“These artists understand and respect their audiences as co-explorers and the adventure that ensues in Whoosh! is utterly joyous”

Awesome Children's Festival 

An interactive sensory space adventure for young audiences with disabilities

Calling all budding astronauts! Become a pilot, engineer or navigator as we whoosh across the galaxy for an interstellar adventure. 

Join our crew to explore outer space, taste space food and experience hyperspace and travel all the way to the mysterious Planet X. We’ll have to work as a team to repair the ship and return to Earth. 

Created by pioneering theatre makers Sensorium Theatre, this highly-tailored production is suitable for children with a broad range of access needs, including those with multiple and complex needs, and those on the autism spectrum.
