Bathe in sound and light with your baby as you explore the wonders of how their senses develop.

Sit, lie down or stand while sharing this immersive, intimate experience. Inspired by baby lab research into the expanding vision of children from birth until 18 months, this 15-minute installation distills the world of awakening perception into a unique show. Real-life soundscapes harmonies and echo a newborn’s hearing as lights twinkle and colour slowly fills the performance pod.

Co-created by theatre-maker Daniel Naddafy, and artist & lighting designer Marty Langthorne, this 15-minute performance is designed for a baby between 0-18 months to experience with their adult. Each ticket will cover a group of up to 4 people (including the baby) to come into the performance pod.

Co-commissioned by the Barbican London and developed with support from Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts and, Half Moon Theatre.

For babies aged 0-18 months and their families

This event takes place in the North Wall Theatre.
