A perfomer is lying down with eyes closed and fist clenched, arms up. There are blue playing balls around them and a blue bow on their head.

An adventure story with song, speech, movement, touch, smell, and big, beautiful visuals, we are taken on a voyage over the sea to a strange land and a stranger castle, where an extremely sneaky queen plays a trick on us!

Let’s Go is made specially for people with Profound & Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD). It unfolds slowly, using repetition, to allow for the time it may take some audience members to process information. Let’s Go is fun and full of giggles and mischief.

The production was first developed by Naomi Kelly, one of Two Detectives’ artistic directors, as part of an artist residency with Cove Park and Parklands School (Helensburgh) – a school for students with PMLD.

Over two weeks Naomi worked with four young people in the school, and their teacher and support staff, responding to what these young people found relaxing, pleasant, exciting and fascinating to make this piece. Let’s Go was recently performed for audiences at Orchard Brae School as part of Aberdeen Performing Arts’ Light The Blue Festival 2018.
