As part of her Artist in Residence post with Renfrewshire Leisure and Imaginate, Clare McGarry is hosting a play day to explore sensory materials and devising creative responses to the themes of her new performance, Cosmopot.  

This day is open to theatre makers, choreographers, musicians and visual artists; a chance to play in a room with other artists, meet new collaborators and think about good practice in inclusive work.

Over the day we will:

  • play with a wide range of sensory materials
  • create mini responses and devise narratives around sensory materials
  • collaborate with other artists
  • consider performer/audience relationship when using sensory materials  
  • discuss best practise for inclusive work and appropriate levels of interaction in performance 

Cosmopot (age 5 - 8 years)

Step inside the Cosmopot. 

A magical space full of bubbles, star gazing and teapots. 

Taking the teapot constellation of Sagittarius as inspiration, Cosmopot is a multi-sensory show suitable for all children aged 5-8 years old.
