Talk

Using Puppetry in Sensory Spaces with Sue Pyecroft

Date of event: 17 Apr 2024 Event start time: 5:00pm - Event end time: 6:30pm

Venue Address: City Arts, 11-13 Hockley, Nottingham, NG1 1FH

A tender moment as a smiling woman leans in to share a colorful bird puppet with a young girl in a wheelchair, both engrossed in the puppet's details, in a lush garden setting.

Sue Pyecroft, co-founder of Bamboozle Theatre Company, introduces the work of Bamboozle and their approach to using puppetry with learning disabled and neurodiverse children and young people.

Sue will discuss the Bamboozle approach, and how Bamboozle practitioners create a safe, non-judgemental space, where children and young people are able to regulate their emotions and be themselves. This allows children to safely explore, through imaginative play their own emotional landscape.

Suitable for ages 14+. Part of the Nottingham Puppet Festival.
