the Baboró Board and team would like to acknowledge the passing of the late teenagh cunningham who was the festival's general Manager up until her passing in August 2015. teenagh was passionate about the arts and above all, about access to the arts for all children. As Baboró was a part of teenagh’s journey, we would like to dedicate the 2016 literature programme to teenagh. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

The Shape of Things

the world around us is made up of wonderful shapes, but sometimes there are so many shapes that some get lost. this is the story of two shapes, cubert and triantán, and the adventures they have finding their way back to one another. set in a soft and tactile environment, this interactive story is told through puppetry, object theatre, music and sound.

De chruthanna iontacha atá an domhan seo timpeall orainn déanta. Ach, uaireanta, éirímid bréan de na rudaí céanna a fheicimid gach lá. seo scéal cubert agus triantán agus na heachtraí go léir a tharlaíonn dóibh nuair a mheasctar na cruthanna ar fad.

BABOrÓ nOtEs: This new bi-lingual show has been developed especially for very young children. enjoy an intimate and joyful theatrical experience with your little one.

Aston is a little dog who collects every stone he stumbles upon. All of the stones are different, one is sad, another feels cold, yet each one needs to be taken care of. As Aston’s living room is gradually taken over by stones, his parents must help him find a new home for his friends. ‘Aston’s Stones’ is ultimately a story about how easy it is to love.

Graffiti Classics

The Secret Life of Suitcases

Meet larry: an office worker who leads a very tidy life. Everything in larry’s life is in its place, and there is a place for everything - until a mysterious suitcase appears at his door. A suitcase with a tiny label. A tiny label with larry’s name on it. And this suitcase has a mission...

Ages 4+ Family

16 strings, 8 dancing feet, and 4 voices with one aim: to make classical music wickedly funny and fantastically exhilarating. graffiti classics burst the elitist boundaries of the traditional string quartet with their hilarious all-singing, all-dancing musical comedy cabaret show. It’s a classical concert, a gypsy-folk romp, an opera, a stand-up comedy set, and a brilliant dance show all rolled into one! From Beethoven to Bluegrass, Baroque to pop, and strauss to saturday night Fever, there really is something for everyone – and graffiti classics never fail to get audiences laughing, clapping, and singing along.

BABOrÓ nOtEs: graffiti classics are no stranger to galway stages where they never fail to excite and delight audiences young and old.

De Koningin Is Verdwenen

The Queen Has Vanished

the queen has vanished. the king is grieving. princess Anna is waiting for the thaw to set in. A visually evocative, musical tale, the sort of show that uncovers that tiny bit of hope when you have begun telling yourself that all is lost, yet dare to believe that it is not. A tender story about great sadness but also about hope, laughter and sunshine. And time…

BABOrÓ nOtEs: A beautiful story that speaks to children and adults alike, told with humour, sophistication and sensitivity by one of Europe’s most exciting theatre companies. prepare to be deeply moved. tu

‘voyage’ is an electrifying new play, inspired by ‘gulliver’s travels. Brought to life with Monkeyshine’s unique style, humour and signature charm. this big-hearted epic is filled with ferocious storms, far off lands, curious giants and tiny strangers. the tide is high, the wind is rising and adventure is calling!

photographer phile Deprez

kopergietery bring a stunningly fresh approach to theatre featuring live music and illustration created before your very eyes.

Wild adventures often begin in unexpected places. Our story starts with a young boy whose life doesn’t seem to be going to plan. A chance discovery on a beach leads to an extraordinary adventure that will change our hero's view of the world forever.

‘Hovers perfectly between tragedy and comfort, between drama and humour.’ De standaard

A Feast of Bones By Frances kay, Directed by Muireann Ahern

under the twinkling lights of a charming French café, a waitress sits polishing her knives. In the shadows of the First World War, one cunning customer is about to be served a meal he will never forget. A vastly entertaining musical fable, ‘A Feast of Bones’ serves up songs, fun, and fright, delivered with aplomb by louis lovett, lisa lambe and their merry band. so let the music strike up, let hunger be satisfied – and let the laughter be so loud you cannot hear the distant thunder. ★★★★ ‘A fantastically realised show’ the Irish times

‘With ‘A Feast of Bones’, Theatre Lovett proves that Irish theatre for young audiences is capable of matching its international peers.’ the sunday Business post ★★★★’Sparkling piece.’ the sunday times

The Adventures of Growing Up

“I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books...But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” cs lewis

this is an exhibition that sees growing up as an adventure in itself. A person creates their own story through growing,

changing and learning. However there are many facets to this - in order to grow you have to leave something behind, you have to leap into the unknown. the artists investigate these complex issues through the frame of fairytales and folktales - how stories can teach us about morals, relationships and identity.
