Come in, relax, find a space and settle.
Welcome to a world of shiny things.
Welcome to Glisten!

In this interactive performance for babies aged 0-18 months and their grown-ups, the audience are taken on a gentle and immersive journey exploring the world of reflective materials wrapped up in a soundscape of evocative yet laid-back music. Watch as the empty space of the theatre fills with colour, sounds and surprises, creating a sensory landscape ready to explore after the performance is over.

Glisten is performed to a small audience creating an intimate and unique theatrical experience, stunningly co-created by theatre-maker Daniel Naddafy and designer Phoebe Stubbs.

A beautiful, sensory first theatrical experience for babies. The actor builds a mesmerising connection with each child at just the right pace. A delight to watch.
