people with learning difficulties
No matter what the level of ability or the experience of the group, Wolf + Water’s work with this incredibly creative section of the population is always full of high adventure. The theatre, music & arts work undertaken celebrates each individuals talents, creativity & dignity, & is geared to each persons particular level of capability, be that performing a complicated dance or banging a triangle, with equal energy.
Wolf & Water have worked with both children & adults with learning difficulties, including those with multiple & profound disabilities & across the autistic spectrum, working creatively to produce stunning theatre productions & film pieces, as well as running sessions with clients using drama & arts to develop social & communication skills. Sometimes Wolf & Water work with groups on their own but are also widely recognised for their integrated work, bringing together people with learning difficulties with other community groups such as schools & amateur dramatic societies fostering ongoing collaborations between organisations, enabling groups to learn & discover new skills from each other.
In conference performances Wolf & Water often use performers with learning difficulties. Conference Work has included work with the British Institute for Learning Difficulties & National Conference of Occupational Therapists.
“I have personally witnessed the sensitivity & flexibility demonstrated by yourself…particularly with reference to the involvement of people who can display challenging behaviour & people with additional severe physical disabilities. For the first time in their lives they have been regarded with genuine earned applause & acclaim.”
