We are very excited to announce that Sensorium Theatre have received the Australia Council Playing Australia grant! This means Oddysea is hitting the road with a national tour in 2017.
Oddysea is a sensory performance for children with special needs. Inside an ocean installation the audience is led through an underwater adventure where touch, taste and smell are as important as sight and sound in the storytelling process.
Building on the success of their 2015 tour to Arts House Melbourne and the Sydney Opera House, Oddysea will head to eight venues across Australia in 2017 for a nine week road trip to regional areas in South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales.
The Sensorium crew have had a busy couple of years with Oddysea, in a few months they will be touring through Regional WA with thanks to BOOST Funding. Our main marketing man Thom along with Frankie and Michelle from Sensorium just wrapped up a pre tour in Kalgoorlie, Merredin, Esperence and Geraldton to meet the venues before they arrive in August and September.
