Frozen Light

Overview

Founded in in 2013 by Artistic Directors / performers Lucy Garland and Amber Onat Gregory, Frozen Light creates high-quality touring productions for audiences with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD). Their story-driven productions have an emotional narrative that is explored through multi-sensory experiences, supported with integrated visual communication and live music. By creating safe and accessible spaces to present their work in mainstream theatres, the company provides audiences with complex needs greater opportunity to access community buildings and become more visible in society.

Incorporating sign language and a live original musical soundscape, HOME tells the story of two women learning to survive after their city has been destroyed by a dust storm. Taking us on a journey of friendship as the two women work together to build a new home and long for rescue, the play brings joy and laughter through a unique interactive experience involving individual engagement for the PMLD members of the audience via touch, smell and sound.
