Half Moon

A gentle, sparkling and immersive multi-sensory experience for babies

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!

Glisten is 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 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 event, beautifully co-created by theatre-maker Daniel Naddafy and visual artist Phoebe Stubbs.

“A great sensory experience for adults and babies. Carla loved it and was fascinated by the lights and colours” Audience Member (Oxford)

“Terrific watching small faces involved in sound, colour, light and texture – we were enthralled from start to finish” Audience Member (London, Half Moon)

Performances last 20 minutes (no interval), followed by an interactive free-play session where the babies can explore the tactile world of Glisten.

Each £19.95 ticket admits one adult and one baby/infant. You can also purchase tickets for additional adults and babies/infants for £9.95

The show takes place in our new Studio 5 space and has a very limited capacity.
