Give Me Space!

DIY’s current interactive, multi-sensory show for PMLD audiences blasts off into space to explore the universe.

As the audience travels to other planets and meets new civilisations their multi-sensory journey is enhanced by interactive props, created with designer Nerissa Cargill-Thompson, and for the first time, DIY has worked with musicians Hannah McCabe and Eve Harrison to create a beautiful live score for the show.

‘Give Me Space!’, like all of DIY’s performances, has been devised and created by our company of performers with learning disabilities. Using the themes of space and travel, DIY has created a multi-sensory, interactive theatre experience specially designed for young people with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities.

‘Give Me Space!’ is currently touring schools and arts organisations including Piper Hill School, Delamere School, the Manchester Hospital School and Bury College.

Using the Give Me Space! show as a real example, we have produced a 12 page resource guide to creating Sensory Theatre with PMLD audiences based on this show. You can download this for free by clicking on the link below. There is also a downloadable social story for the show.
