Enthralling work for audiences ranging from tots to teens coming to Galway in October
AT GALWAY City Museum, on Monday evening, the 2019 Baboró International Arts Festival, Ireland’s flagship festival devoted exclusively to children and families, announced details of its 23rd programme.
Running from October 14 to 20, the festival will showcase world-class, enthralling work for audiences ranging from tots to teens, created by extraordinary artists from Ireland and across the globe. There will be more than 50 events across Galway city and county during the festival, with a programme offering theatre, dance, music, visual arts, literature, film, puppetry, and creative workshops for children and families
This year, Irish work includes the world premiere of a new dance show from internationally feted CoisCéim which celebrates individuality, Francis Footwork. This is an empowering tale of an extraordinary dancer. “CoisCéim’s first show for younger audiences was The Wolf and Peter which premiered in Baboro in 2015 before enjoying huge success internationally so we were delighted when they came to us with a second piece,” says Baboró artistic director Aislinn Ó hEocha.
