Fri 21 - Sat 22 Oct

There may be an actor on stage, but the main character is light. Imagine a tap dance to the rhythms of light switches. See ordinary lamps, bulbs and cables becoming glowing flowers, a spoon, a candle and a spectacular carousel.

This is a game, a dance and an enchanting spectacle created to help young children to overcome their fear of the dark and to discover the language of light.

On-Off is a tribute to the children’s amazement at the behaviour of light and to their interest in controlling it and its intensity through the use of switches. It is a game that helps them overcome their fear of the dark.

PLEASE NOTE: this event has been added to replace Cornici/Frames at Ballybane Library, which has unfortunately had to be cancelled. Ticket holders will be contacted directly, and additional tickets for On-Off are available to book.

La Baracca produces shows exclusively for children and young people: from very small children attending crèches to teenagers attending secondary school. The productions have an original theatrical style and dimension, aimed at generating amazement, pursuing simplicity and essentiality, always paying special attention to the relationship with the audience. La Baracca supports the idea of competent and sensitive children, who can fully enjoy a high-quality artistic experience at any age.
