A gentle, sparkling and immersive multi-sensory experience for babies aged 0-18 months and their grown-ups.

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!

You'll be 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. 

This is the perfect alternative family festive season 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.

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

“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, previously Head of Programming, Nuffield Southampton Theatres
