Our relaxed Performances will be a judgement-free and fun experience for the entire family.
Cork Opera House has worked closely with the autistic community and parents/carers of autistic children to tailor the Panto experience for autistic children and children with sensory processing differences.
Examples of what the relaxed performances will entail include the adjustment of the show‘s lighting and sound to reduce sensory stimuli and keeping the lights in the auditorium on at a low level throughout the performance. During the relaxed performances, the auditorium will be a space where children can move around, make noise and enjoy themselves during the performances. We will reduce the capacity in the auditorium to make it more comfortable and spacious.
All individuals are welcome to the relaxed performances as are assistance/service dogs. This performance will have specific alterations with autistic children and children with sensory processing differences in mind to create a comfortable, safe and welcoming environment.
