Take a seat in Oily Cart’s extra-special salon, designed to make you feel beautiful inside and out!
Mirror Mirror’s multi-sensory beauty parlour is a chance to be pampered and get involved in messy play. Soft make-up brushes glide across faces, warm soapy water washes over skin, and mud-packs are massaged into hands in Oily Cart’s production for children and young people with complex disabilities. It’s a world of sparkling light and magical mirrors, complimented by the aroma of perfume and accompanied by live music from a full-sized harp. Mirror Mirror is an immersive, interactive treat from head to toe.
Mirror Mirror is for ages 3-19 and comes in two distinct versions: for children and young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, and for children and young people on the autism spectrum. The audience is limited to 6 children/ young people and 6 adult carers per show; occasionally there are some spaces for observers.
“As with all of Oily Cart’s work, this piece is immersive, interactive, multi-sensory, transient and experiential, but for all its immediacy, the production lingers long after you’ve left the room. Mirror Mirror leaves plenty to reflect on.” Children’s Theatre Reviews.
