I AM BABA is a theatre adventure for babies created by internationally renowned theatre director Anna Newell and composer David Goodall. Their shows for early years have been seen on five continents, off-Broadway and in every single Sure Start in Belfast.

I AM BABA is a magical adventure of song, lights and textures for babies aged 0-12 months. It’s a show about identity, agency and personhood. For babies. I AM BABA is full of gorgeous live harmony singing and playful objects – jellyfish-like scarves dance and tiny lights fly in this intimate immersive performance which happens inside a specially designed tent that holds just 6 babies – each with their one adult guest.

I AM BABA was the International Early Childhood Arts Commission funded by the 4 Dublin Local Authorities in 2017 through Arts Council Ireland’s Invitation to Collaboration Fund. This national tour was funded by the Arts Council. In association with The Civic, Tallaght.

This is Draíocht’s 6th Toddler Takeover event which celebrates the limitless imagination of the very young child and the magic that happens when it is combined with the world of artists and the arts.

This year we explore the wonderful and curious elements of earth, air, fire and water; finding the gooey beauty of clay and earth, the airy movement of dancers, gravity's ups and downs, the awesomeness of rainbow light and its sound, with mini footprints, small hidden worlds and big fun. With a combination of book-in and free drop-in events, children are invited to bring their insatiable curiosity and their adults to explore, discover new art forms, create, play, do a dance, see a dance, draw, explore and nurture creative potential, while having fun too.

Booking opens on Tue 5th May 2020, 10am, tel: 01-8852622.
Book-in workshops and shows cost €5 per child (accompanying adult free).

WED 10 JUN 10.30AM-12.30PM – SENSORY FRIENDLY
Leading on from the success of last year, this year we will also have a special sensory day. This will have limited capacity. Events and workshops will be adapted to suit the needs of young children with additional needs. This event needs to be pre-booked. Please contact Paula directly if you have a group or a child that you think might be interested in coming along, email paula@draiocht.ie
