Baboró, Ireland’s International Arts Festival for Children, will celebrate twenty five years in existence with a very special festival beginning in Galway from today.
This unique event had at its heart a vision of access to the arts for all children, inspired by the UN Convention on the Rights of The Child.
The Festival runs for two weeks this year from today until the 17th of October with a dazzling display of child centered events in the city and around the county.
This year sees the return of in-person events coming to venues around Galway and there will also be a free school and family digital programme.
Highlights this first week of the festival include:
Rothar, Branar Téatar do Pháistí’s, a production that starts in a tiny bike shop and ends in a world of adventure,
The Veiled Ones, a dance theatre show loosely inspired by Roald Dahl’s The Witches
The Streets Are Ours, a promenade performance created with help from local children and combining parkour, dance and circus skills.
