A wonderful interactive performance for very young children and their parents.

The world all around us is made up of wonderful shapes. But sometimes there are so many shapes, that some shapes get lost. This is a story of two shapes, Cubert and Triantán, and the adventures they have finding their way back to each other.
The Shape of Things combines puppetry, object theatre and music, exploring how the world around us is created from different shapes, textures and materials in a beautiful non-verbal story featuring two quirky puppets, which unfolds in a specially designed space for adults and babies to relax in together.
On entering the soft, sensory performance space, the children and parents are met by two performers, Scottish based Saras Feijóo and Irish based Helen Gregg and the two central characters, a curious cube by the name of Cubert, and a terrific triangle Triantán who exist in their own separate worlds made of their respective shapes. Over the course of the performance the performers with their new friends explore the environment, the shapes, textures and materials held within, accompanied by an original musical score composed by Galway based musician Miquel Barcelo.
This beautiful, playful and tactile experience has been designed especially for very young children and their parents to enjoy together, calling on experience from all three partners of working with Early Years audiences.
Suitable for babies aged six months to two years and their adults.
The event includes 30 minutes of performance followed by interactive play. The audience is limited to 40, including parents and children, on stage.
