Come in, relax, find a space and settle.
Slowly, a shimmering surface emerges.
What does it look like?
How does it move?
Listen, what can you hear?
Welcome to a world of shiny things.
Welcome to Glisten!

An interactive performance for babies aged 0-18 months and their grown-ups.

The audience are taken on a sparkling and shimmering immersive journey exploring the world of reflective materials. Watch as the empty space of the theatre fills with colour, sounds and surprises, creating a multi-sensory landscape ready to explore after the performance is over.

The perfect alternative family Christmas experience, Glisten is performed to a small audience creating an intimate and welcoming theatrical experience, beautifully co-created by theatre-maker Daniel Naddafy and visual artist Phoebe Stubbs.

At the end of the performance, babies and parents are invited onto the stage for an interactive play session.

Early booking is advised as Glisten is performed to a very small audience.

Glisten is a Daniel Naddafy and Half Moon Presents production.
