Sing Me to the Sea is a blissful immersive adventure for children/young people with complex needs. It is performed in hydro pools with 3 audience members per show, each with an adult companion – with everyone in the water! Three performers take the audience on a magical journey of exquisite harmony singing and gentle water play designed especially for children with complex needs, embracing and celebrating the sensory dialogue that they have with the world around them.

Anna Newell is one of Ireland’s leading theatre makers for young audiences and her work for extraordinary audiences has been seen on six continents. SING ME TO THE SEA is part of the 2023 programme from The Network For Extraordinary Audiences and is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland. Co-production with The Civic, Tallaght.

“a unique production which engages individuals with even the most profound level of disability in an enriching musical and artistic experience. As a society, we aim to remove barriers to participation; we make art galleries and concert halls physically accessible. However, for so many children, their disabilities go beyond the physical. They may be able to physically access buildings which house the arts, however, the content of these buildings is not often meaningful to them. Sing Me to the Sea brought an experience of the arts to the children of St Catherine’s. It was beautiful, it was awe inspiring and it was meaningful.” – Physiotherapist, ST Catherine’s School, County Wicklow
