As the mornings are starting to get darker and nighttime draws earlier, Christmas is just around the corner.... OK, we know its way too early to be celebrating mid-winter, but we're really excited about it this year. We've started rehearsing for our yuletide production, Night Tree, and are thinking about all the wildlife starting to gather food for the colder weather.
We've also had a really busy summer presenting work in New York, Munich and across England. There's more jet setting ahead as we travel to Dublin and Sweden this Autumn and head to IPAY in January 2019 (see below for further info).
We hope to see you somewhere soon and if you‘ve any questions or want to know more about anything we’re up to do pick up the phone or drop us a line.
The Ark, Dublin
27–29 Sept, 11am & 2pm
(Relaxed performance 28 Sept, 2pm)
Explore the ground and all of its wriggling inhabitants in this quirky dance show for young children. Featuring worms, slugs, snails, spontaneous outbreaks of ant dancing and plenty of obscure insect-related facts, Grass uses performance, puppetry and projection to delve down into the world beneath our feet whilst breathing in the scent of freshly-cut grass. For ages 2–5.
We're delighted to announce that we've been selected to be part of the IPAY showcase in Philadelphia (15 - 19 January 2019). This will be the works first time across the pond, and we hope to meet lots of you there!
Prior to that, we're also heading north to Sweden to tour as part of Salto! This has given us a wonderful opportunity to work on the show to make a technically lighter version that will be able to nip in and out of venues before you can make your trousers into a hat.
Come into the woods to dance in the snow and bask in the glistening seasonal lights! Full of the sounds and smells of the winter forest, Night Tree is a magical staging of Eve Buntings book of the same name. Made for audiences 3+ and their families, join us in this celebration of the winter solstice as we dress a rather special tree with edible decorations, sing songs and dance together. Explore a wintry world pre-show, and enjoy a stay-and-play with the dancers afterwards!
