Blue! is a short piece (10-15 minutes) featuring 2 performers utilising the Imagination Playground that, after the initial 10-15 minutes, organically develops into an interactive adventure that the watching children and their adults (parents/caregivers/early years staff) increasingly participate in and eventually lead.

Some children engage in a noisy robust way, others most gradually, others by intense and quiet watching from a distance.  Blue’s methodology validates all of these individual responses which in turn indicates a situation where we recognise and respect the individuality of children from a very early age.

This adventure is a warm, curious, playful environment where the journey from spectator to participant happens almost without them noticing it.

Funded by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Arts Office.

Developed in partnership with the Peter McVerry Trust, the DLR Children & Young People’s Services Committees and the Pavilion Theatre Dun Laoghaire.

I know my daughter will be talking about it for days.

Fabulous. Every child should experience it.

My child was just entranced.

The gradual pace encouraged even the most shy to participate

My daughter can be shy but she responded well to the gentle interactions in the show and liked the non-verbal reactions of the performers
