4 stars – Edinburgh Guide Full Review Here
The world all around us is made up of wonderful shapes. But sometimes you can get tired of seeing the same things all the time. This is a story of Cubert the cube and Triantán the triangle, and the adventures they have when all of the shapes get mixed up.
Set in a soft and tactile environment Scottish based early years Arts organisation Starcatchers and Branar tell this interactive story through puppetry, theatre, music and sound.
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.
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 6month- 2years.

The Review Hub
“Feijóo and Gregg strike a balance between engaging with all the rapt upturned faces in this comfortable, but quasi-mountainous environment and playing together in the mode of the classic Laurel and Hardy-esque comedy duo – good-natured Gregg is constantly the butt of mischievous Feijóo’s jokes.”★★★★ – THE REVIEWS HUB
