Hidden away, deep inside the heart of a rainforest, a tight-knit team of explorers share spellbinding stories of animals and adventure, all from the comfort of their curious camp


Each new explorer joins the TRIBE, becoming immersed in the sounds, scenes and scents of the rainforest. A carefully designed musical score underpins live instrumentation and non-verbal interaction, culminating in a unique and empowering sensory experience.

Performances of TRIBE are individually tailored to suit the needs of each young autistic and/or neurodivergent audience member.
