Baboró International Children's Festival to run from October 17 to 23
AUTUMN IS upon us once more, season of mist and mellow fruitfulness...and Baboró. Details of this year’s festival were unveiled at a packed reception in Il Vicolo on Monday evening and October will see Baboró embark on a fantastical journey of flying suitcases, dancing feet, vanishing queens, wild adventures, curious giants and toe-tapping tunes.
Offering a feast of treats for children big and small, plus grown-ups, this year’s festival, which runs from October 17 to 23, features thrilling shows from Ireland, Holland, Sweden, Belgium, Austria, Denmark, and Britain. Over seven days of theatre, dance, music, puppetry, film, animation, exhibitions, talks, and workshops, Baboró will enchant young and old alike in venues throughout Galway.
Programme highlights include a beautifully tender story from one of Europe’s most exciting theatre companies, Kopergietery from Belgium. The Queen Has Vanished features live music and illustration that speaks to children and adults alike about the power of hope, when it seems that all is lost. Dream City from De Dansers in Holland is a high energy live music and dance show inspired by the fairgrounds of Dream City, Iraq; an exhilarating and thought-provoking ode to children in war zones, where the ability to dream is essential to survival.
