Barrowland Ballet present Playful Tiger

Playful Tiger tells the story of a tiger’s visit to a rigid family home where he turns their world upside down. It’s chaotic but brilliantly fun, with a focus on sensory engagement.

Playful Tiger is for children and young people age 7+ with complex autism who are mainly non-verbal. Playfulness within the work creates space for a two-way response between audience and performers.

Made in collaboration with Ellie Griffiths Projects, this piece interacts directly with the audience, with a focus on sensory engagement.

“remarkably bold and visionary…what really shines through is the generosity and constant awareness that the dancers show throughout the performance… the interaction is an uplifting witness to how dance can loosen up more than muscles.” ★★★★- The Herald
