We love to create ways for participants to discover their senses and then learn to use them as a creative landscape.

 We are the 2019 Cultural Residents at the Institute of Imagination leading sensory workshops and events with over 1000 local young people.

In June 2018 we co-created ‘Without Touch’ with six artists who have experienced severe tactile deprivation. The piece centred around the sensations our skin experiences from lack of contact and the connection to loneliness. This led to us co-author an article with Kings College London looking into the relationship between lack of touch and rising rates of loneliness in the UK.

THE MAKING SENSE SEASON
HEART N SOUL August 2017

MakingSense.png

We were the co-creators of a season of workshops at the wonderful Heart n Soul. Together we played for six weeks with our senses. Running sessions with Alice Phelps, Sound lab, paint party, The Phaedra Ensemble. We composed music, created a taste choir, investigated our bodies and used our senses to create new work.

In the end we created our very own musical sensory intstallation called "Sensetellation" at the Albany Deptford.
