The world all around us is made up of wonderful shapes. But sometimes there are so many shapes that some shapes get lost. This is a story of two shapes, Cubert and Triantán, and the adventures they have finding their way back to each other.

Set in a soft and tactile environment Starcatchers and Branar tell this interactive story through puppetry, object theatre, music and sound.

Designed for children aged 6 months – 2 years and their adults.

Leagan Gaeilge
De chruthanna iontacha atá an domhan seo timpeall orainn déanta. Ach, uaireanta, éirímid bréan de na rudaí céanna a fheicimid gach lá. Seo scéal Cubert an Chiúib agus Triantán an Triantáin agus na heachtraí go léir a tharlaíonn dóibh nuair a mheasctar na cruthanna ar fad.

Úsáideann Starcatchers agus Branar puipéadóireacht, téatar na réad, ceol agus fuaimeanna chun an scéal seo a chur i láthair ar sheit bog agus tadhlach.

Dírítear an seó seo ar pháistí ó 6 mhí go 2 bhliain d’aois, agus a ndaoine fásta.

Fad reatha – thart ar 45 nóiméad (10 nóiméad de spraoi idirghníomhach tar éis an taispeántais san áireamh).

Ailie Cohen – Co-Creator / Puppet Maker
Ailie is one of the most admired makers of children’s work in Scotland. Ailie is a puppet maker, designer
and performer whose productions has included the hugely popular Jazz Mouse, of which the Sunday
Times wrote, ‘cramming more invention into each five minutes than most adult shows do in an hour.
Please, go and see it!’. Ailie then began her collaboration with Lewis Hetherington and made Cloudman in 2010, which has been described as a show that ‘utterly charmed audiences…a joy to behold’ **** by The Herald. Cloudman has been hugely popular with UK and international promoters and audiences, and since it’s creation has toured widely in Scotland as well as to the South Bank Centre in London, the RSC, Imaginate Festival and venues in Dubai, Malta, USA Japan, China and Australia. In 2013 Ailie and Lewis created ‘The Secret Life of Suitcases’, Made in Scotland Showcase 2015, IPAY Showcase 2016 which is currently also touring internationally. www.ailiecohen.com
