With another year of Arts Grant Funding in place thanks to the generous support of The Arts Council of Ireland, 2023 sees further touring of Groove, babyGROOVE and the return of the hugely successful hydropool show Sing Me To The Sea (back in the water!) – all touring to The Network For Extraordinary Audiences, now in its 3rd year – as well as further substantial artist/artform development with five mini R&D projects happening in littletinySPACE2.
Led by musician Eamon Sweeney and also funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, Anna is delighted to be part of BabyLovesMusic touring Ireland in Summer 2023 to venues and festivals including The Gate, Dublin and the World Association of Mental Health Congress.
In autumn 2023, I Am Baba tours for fourteen weeks to more than 1000 babies, visiting 20 counties in Ireland in partnership with venues across the country, 3 Dublin hospital sites in partnership with Children’s Health Ireland and with the national network of CYPSC.
Thanks to Creative Ireland funding through Wicklow County Arts Office we’re also undertaking a week’s R&D on The Sound Of Things – a new show for children with complex needs!
Work created for other companies continues to tour with Four Go Wild In Wellies is at the Spark Arts Festival in Leceister and at an inclusive arts festival in South Korea!
