The Shape Of Things

The Shape Of Things


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 6month- 2years.
