An immersive multi-sensory theatre performance which saw children take flight in a custom built spaceship was held in Roebourne last week. Sensorium Theatre’s performance, Whoosh, invited children into a specially designed immersive sensory environment inside the Ngurin Centre. As part of the show school children became pilots, engineers and navigators, travelling across the galaxy to explore outer space, taste space food, experience hyperdrive and travel all the way to the mysterious Planet X. The visit included performances during the week and two sessions open to the general public as well as a professional development workshop including members from EPIC, Roebourne District High School, Roebourne Police and local art group Juluwarlu. In a statement a NYFL spokesperson said they believed culture and creativity were vital to securing an independent future for the Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi people and creating a range of educational and economic opportunities. “We look forward to providing experiences in our own community and for people in the Pilbara that can create an exchange of ideas and learnings and create possibilities for collaborations,” the statement said. Sensorium Theatre is based in Perth and is Australia’s only company creating work for young audiences with multiple and complex disabilities and those on the autism spectrum.
