Thomas Johnston and Ceol Connected are here rehearsing all this week ahead of the start of their tour of LULLABY LEAF, which opens in Solstice Arts Centre Navan next week.
LULLABY LEAF is a captivating sensory show created for children with Down Syndrome and their guardian/carer. Prepare for whooshing winds, gigantic raindrops, busy bugs, and bursts of colourful canopy in this joyful multi-sensory performance. With the gentle unfurling of a leaf, a soothing sensory world is brought to life through music and song, light, smell, movement, and touch.
It is based on and inspired by LEAF, a multisensory theatre production developed by Ceol Connected in 2019 while in situe as Theatre Company in Residence in Draíocht.
Ceol Connected's LULLABY LEAF tour in Oct/Nov 2022 is supported by Monaghan County Council, Cavan County Council, Louth County Council and Meath County Council and funded by the Creative Ireland Programme. Lullaby Leaf will also be presented at Baboró International Arts Festival for Children with support from the Bank of Ireland Begin Together Arts Fund.
