Each person becomes an adventurer in their own unforgettable story. Each individual traveller is encouraged to explore the space and participate fully.
Whilst Otherworld welcomes everyone, it is designed specifically for children and young people with complex additional needs. Every visit to Otherworld is unique, constantly adapting, as we encompass all levels of disability. Otherworld can be accessed by both school groups and family bookings.
Otherworld is an exciting, artistic collaboration involving Same Sky and Different Planet Arts.
Between 2013-2016 Otherworld’s expert team of theatre facilitators, story makers, musicians and play therapists reached over 2700 children, young people and their families across Sussex and delivered over 140 inclusive workshops in its first year.
Otherworld is a collaboration between Same Sky and Different Planet Arts. The show pilot project premiered at the Brighton Dome Theatre and sold out in a matter of hours, with demand exceeding availability five times over. Otherworld has toured successfully around the South East of England at theatres, festivals and schools including The Corn Exchange Brighton, The Old Covered Market Theatre, The Brighton Fringe, Paddington Arts Centre, Chailey Heritage School, Palatine School Worthing and St Johns College Seaford
It has been generously funded by the National Lottery, through the Reaching Communities Fund, Unity Theatre and The Fresh Leaf Foundation.
Here is what people have said about Otherworld:
“…real sense of wonder……such a joy …pure play and fun” -Parent
“Twenty out of ten it was excellent, we’d love to come again” – Downs View school Teacher.
“I was bowled over by Otherworld. You have created something beautiful, a place of safety where children can be themselves and experience a real sense of wonder. The environment, with its colourful installations, music, lights and video projections, create a genuine ‘otherworld’ in which anything can – and does – happen. You and the rest of the team are incredible – such total commitment, responsiveness and empathy. The personal interactions with the children were breathtaking.” – Parent
