About Playful Tiger

Playful Tiger is a highly physical, interactive dance performance, specially created for children and young people who are profoundly autistic and mainly non-verbal. A troubled family’s world turns upside down when a mischievous tiger visits. It’s chaotic, wild and brilliantly fun. Interacting directly with the audience Playful Tiger tells the story through the eyes of the child, with a focus on sensory engagement. Playfulness creates space for a two-way response between audience and performers.

A visual storyboard of the show will be provided to audiences a month before the performance.

Age 7-12 years (ASN)

Venue: Lyra at Artspace, 11 Harewood Rd, EH16 4NT

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Playful Tiger are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
