Welcome to Here Written and Directedby Tami Dixon May 12-15, 2016 Bricolage Production Company
From January to May 2016 I was a part of an ensemble of artists at Bricolage Production Company who, along with members of the ASD community, devised and created an original immersive theatre piece specifically designed for children with autism spectrum disorders and sensory sensitivities. Through out the time we spent together I got to participate in educational sessions with the cast and creative team, attend puppet workshops, facilitate discussion and join in on devising sessions, and help Tami Dixon create a structure and written script. I had first hand experience with many aspects of theatre I had yet to delve into- including devising, immersive theatre, children's theatre, and sensory sensitive theatre.
Welcome to Here is a sensory-sensitive adventure that provides a space for friends and families to celebrate, explore, and belong. Welcome to Here is an imaginative journey past threshold guardians, through tunnels, over barriers, and into a covert cave. On this personal quest, you'll meet allies, conquer fears, traverse trials, solve puzzles, and quite possibly emerge as the "Hero of Here."
