An Seanfhear Beag

An Seanfhear Beag is based on “The Story of Little Old Man” by famous Swedish author Barbro Lindgren. It has been adapted and translated by Marc Mac Lochlainn.

It is a delicate tale of the friendship between and a lonely old man and a dog no one wanted. It’s told with enchanting puppets and live music.

This touching story is told by Branar with the help of puppets created by Suse Reibisch and Morgan Cooke’s newly composed live music. The show was created with the help of The Arts Council.

Branar was delighted work with Bjarne Sandborg, of Teater Refleksion. Bjarne worked in close collaboration with us as artistic adviser on this project.

Designed for children aged 6 -10 years
