And finally, it is Liza's own project for Theatre Direct, Flying Hearts. Flying Hearts combines dance, theatre and music in a sensory-rich and stimulating performance conceived as an inclusive theatre experience for all children but especially stimulating for children with Developmental Disabilities and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The show is touring TSDB schools with Developmental Disability, Autism, KIP, and Diagnostic programs January 29 -February 9th, 2018.
There will be a special sneak peek public performance and fundraiser on February 10th, 2018 from 3 PM to 5 PM, at Dovercourt Public School. This is your chance to bring your littlest children or children with multiple exceptionalitites to a relaxed and interactive performance exploring an imaginary adventure of sights, sounds, and textures of earth, water, air, and light! This multi-sensory and interactive dance/theatre creation performed to live music promises a rich and stimulating arts experience for young audiences.
You can get tickets for the special family performance and fundraiser here. Or be sure to check out Flying Hearts at the 2018 WeeFestival in May!
