I Am Baba will be created between May and September 2017 and will tour community venues in Dublin in October 2017.
The title is inspired by one of Emily’s Bagnall’s first sentences and the show will bring back together the TiNY creative team of award-winning composer David Goodall, Designer Jen Shepherd (Emily’s mum!) and myself with a team of performers from Dublin – Fiona Browne, Muireann D’Arcy and Christiane O’Mahony.
In order to create the distraction-free performance space ideal for engagement for such a young audience and one where the production values can remain constant whatever the venue, as with the baby shows I’ve made previously, I AM BABA will take place in a portable performance space.
So, a couple of weeks ago, whilst I was visiting Belfast, the lovely people at the MAC were generous enough to give us a wee hour to pop up what we’re considering having as the skeleton of our space.
And here’s a wee sneaky peek of it.
The first R&D week starts in a fortnight on 14 May – watch this space! (literally).
