‘The Story of the Little Old Man’ is the latest show from Galway based children’s theatre company Branar. It tells the delicate tale of friendship between a lonely old man and a stray dog that no one wanted, with the help of enchanting puppets (made by Suse Reibisch) and live music (by Morgan Cooke). This heart-warming story is told with grace and amazing attention to detail and can be understood in any language. Adapted for stage by Marc Mac Lochlainn. Artistic advisor Bjarne Sandborg, Teater Refleksion, Denmark.
Early Booking Advised, limited availability.

Garvan will develop his own personal practice along side engaging in a specific community engagement project in the areas Youth Arts, an 'intergenerational' project involving young people and the elderly in Dublin 15. The residency will result in a solo exhibition of Gallagher’s personal work and a concluding exhibition for the Youth Arts Project to be held during the period of Spréacha, Fingal’s Annual International Arts Festival for Children, in 2011.
Gallagher’s practice is primarily through lens-based mediums, photography and film, frequently centralizing a single figure within a specific environment. His work often references the social body and investigates how society shapes people as human beings, as well as engaging with the fundamental issue of how trust comes to be mutually constituted between artist and subject.
