Intangible Adorations Caravan is an is an immersive, traveling performance and film experience that fuses carnival with science-fantasy biography, circus, and disability culture. A multi-sensory interactive experience with robust accessibility built into each performance, the show presents a threadbare Victorian Caravan as a deceptive cover for a world of mobile Cinema, aerial wizardry and shared ritual.

When the Caravan rolls into a neighbourhood as darkness falls, mysterious magic will be unleashed in a live spectacle, suitable for all ages as we attempt to make contact with the Icon, a legendary figure who vanished several years ago.

The caravan is a multi-sensory and interactive experience with robust accessibility built into each show from the inside out, putting both disabled performers and audience members at the forefront of every aspect of the show.
