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 wrapped up in an ambient soundscape of evocative yet laid-back music. 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 production presented by Half Moon.

Glisten is also on tour nationally. Visit our On Tour page to find out more.

“Every glimmer and glint of light is transfixing… Though the immersive environment changes over time, Naddafy’s performance remains entrancing.”

Children’s Theatre Reviews

“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.”

Katy Snelling, Head of Programming, Nuffield Southampton Theatres

“Terrific watching small faces involved in sound, colour, light and texture – we were enthralled from start to finish.”
