The Shape of ThingsCreated by Ailie Cohen & Marc Mac Lochlainn
The world all around us is made up of wonderful shapes. But sometimes there are so many shapes that some shapes get lost. This is a story of two shapes, Cubert and Triantán, and the adventures they have finding their way back to each other. Set in a soft and tactile environment, Starcatchers and Branar tell this interactive story through puppetry, object theatre, music and sound. Designed for children aged 6 months – 2 years and their adults.
This is a free event, but booking is advised. Contact our box office at 071/91 61518.
“We tell big stories for little citizens”
Branar Téatar do Pháistí was founded by Marc Mac Lochlainn in 2001. Throughout its 15 year history, Branar has developed and produced many high quality children’s theatre performances. We create shows that are not language dependent and captivate an audience both young and old. We are focused on developing a style of theatre that is immediately recognizable as our own. The company tours extensively throughout Ireland every year and is committed to the provision of quality work for young audiences. We have presented shows at the Dublin Theatre Festival, Baboró International Festival for Children and the Galway International Arts Festival. We have toured internationally to festivals and venues in Europe including the Imaginate Festival Edinburgh, Southbank Centre London, Centre Culturel Irlandais Paris.
Starcatchers is a pioneering organisation that specialises in performances and creativity for babies, toddlers and young children aged 0-5 and their parents and carers in Scotland. They believe that Scotland’s youngest citizens should be able to engage with, and participate in, high quality performances and creative experiences that are made by exceptional artists who understand the needs of this unique audience. Starcatchers strive to put the needs of babies, toddlers and young children at the core of everything they do, while engaging with the parents, carers, families, early years’ professionals and communities who nurture them.
