The joys of camping in Scotland. Will this guy rope in the audience before he pegs out?
An amazing blend of live performance and interactive animation Highly visual and incorporating signed arts, this show is suitable for all the family.
We have now joined forces with Krazy Kat Theatre Company who specialise in sign language arts to make a new accessible version of the show.
The Perfect Spot is an engaging, comic and highly visual piece of family entertainment.
The story of one man’s camping expedition as he tries to find the perfect camping spot. It is presented in Cartoon Theatre’s very popular and unique combination of live performance and interactive animation.
The Krazy Kat Theatre Company develop theatre incorporating Sign Language Arts, making it fully accessible for deaf and disabled children and their hearing peers. We have a distinctive, ambitious and quality style of integrated work that has attracted artists to the company who seek to reflect the ‘lived experience’ of deaf and hard of hearing children and young people.
The highly visual aspect of our work has always been our strength, allowing us to engage actively with audiences with disabilities and where English is not a first language, eliciting invitations to Festivals in Spain, France and Holland. We are delighted to be combining with Cartoon Theatre to expand the silliness of ‘Perfect Spot’ with our sign language skills.
Founding Artistic Director Kinny Gardner, formerly a member of Scottish Mime Theatre, has become a recognised leader in the development of visual theatre with integrated signing. He remains committed to the advocacy of diversity and accessibility in U.K. Arts.
