Motion capture sensors on a touch-sensitive carpet allow images and sound to be triggered by breath and light, transforming the performance area into a virtual landscape.

The audience is able to virtually paint with their hands, compose lullabies with their feet, chase caterpillars on all fours and immerse themselves in the whole theatrical experience.

It begins at 11am and tickets at £8 full price and £4 for children are available from the box on 01707 281127, email uharts@herts.ac.uk or visit the box office in the Weston Auditorium at the university in Hatfield.
