It was a miracle of rare device
A sunny pleasure dome with caves of ice!

Welcome to the world of Kubla Khan, a multi-sensory pleasure dome that you can touch, taste and smell. From the sounds of a kora to the feel of a flowing river, experience the temperatures and textures of Coleridge's acclaimed poem as the aroma of incense drifts by...

Coleridge’s poem Kubla Khan is brought to life in this multi-sensory, highly interactive and all-enveloping production enhanced by live music. The intimate and interactive performance is limited to six young people at a time, each supported by an adult carer to maximize their involvement.

Oily Cart's astonishing new work for young people from age 3 to 19 comes in three distinct versions:

  • For those with profound and multiple learning disabilities
  • For those on the autism spectrum
  • And for the first time ever for the Oily Cart, for those who are deafblind with or without any cognitive impairment.
