Since 1981 Oily Cart has been taking its unique blend of theatre to children and young people in schools and venues across the UK. Challenging accepted definitions of theatre and audience, it creates innovative, multi-sensory and highly interactive productions for the very young and for young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
By transforming everyday environments into colourful, tactile ‘wonderlands’ Oily Cart invites its audience to join them in a world of the imagination. Using hydro-therapy pools and trampolines, aromatherapy, video projection, and puppetry, together with a vast array of multi-sensory techniques, it creates original and highly specialised theatre for our young audiences.
Mr and Mrs Moon - a new show for 2-5 year olds
When the Woman Who Lives In The Moon comes down from the sky to play with the children on a beautiful beach, she likes it so much she doesn't want to go home. Join her and feel the sand between your toes and the Moonwind in your hair as we dance to the music of the stars.
A sparkling new show for 2-5 year olds written and directed by Tim Webb with live music written by Max Reinhardt and Catriona Price and a beautiful design by Claire de Loon. The audience will be immersed in a magical Oily mix of interaction, playfulness and adventure.
