  • Anna Rosenfelder
  • Islands- towards theatre for the little ones

    Created 2009-07-20 by Anna Rosenfelder

    Location: Urban - Co. Wicklow

    Duration: 2009-07-20 to 2009-07-25

Project Outline

ISLANDS is a three session multidisciplinary arts workshop for children aged 2-4, accompanied by a parent/ guardian. Accompanied by live music, we will create and explore a world of islands- though story spinning and sculpting, play and movement.

Before, during and after the sessions, the artists will, in collaboration with a musician, explore the possibility of a theatrical experience for under four�s in a studio setting. The progress of both experiences will inform and inspire each other, and at the last day will merge in shape of a small theatrical performance for the participants and their friends.  

The workshop is hosted as part of the Mermaid Art centre�s summer programme. It is an important stepping stone in the ongoing exploration of working with and for children under four, supported through an Arts Council�s Bursary.  It is part of the process-led development of Theater Papilios next production, a theatre experience for the little ones.
