Sensory-Friendly Performance

About the Show

It’s time to explore the great outdoors! What do we need? Tiny tents, bobble hats, scarves and, of course, Wellies (British for rain boots)! With all of the foliage and fun of any good forest frolic, Four Go Wild in Wellies features an inclusive company of disabled and non-disabled professional dancers who remind us that nothing is more natural than newfound friendship.

Oodles of fun ... the giggles keep on coming.

The List

Things to Know

  1. Seating for this show will be on the New Victory’s stage, which is a rare treat and a great introduction to the larger theater space for the youngest among us. You can sit on cushions, benches or in chairs, and you’re free to move about as needed—wigglers welcome!
  2. When you arrive in the space, you’ll find yourself in a forest setting with four tents and a lot of leaves. When the show begins, the tents will move and even jump! It might surprise you.
  3. This show was originally scheduled for our 2019-20 Season, but it was postponed due to the pandemic shutdown. We’re thrilled to have Indepen-dance here at last, after a four-year intermission.

About the Artists

Indepen-dance holds a unique place in Scotland’s arts community. Founded in 1996 by Karen Anderson, this award-winning company allows disabled and non-disabled people to enjoy, express and fulfill their potential through dance. Their three ensembles offer several paths to performance: a weekly dance education program for kids called Young 1’z, an Adult Performance Company that performs in biennial residencies around the UK, and the Professional Touring Company that tours internationally with shows like Four Go Wild in Wellies.
