Where can you go when there is nowhere to go?
In the little bike shop at the end of town, a world of adventure awaits. Two boys and their bikes travel the world in a show that conjures play from the everyday and where anything is possible. This joyful production celebrates the places your imagination can take you.
Produced in association with Drama NUI Galway and Baboró International Arts Festival for Children, as part of Creative Europe’s Mapping Project.
These events are specifically for parents who may have concerns about bringing their children to the festival. We aim to provide a comfortable and relaxed space for children, and a stress-free environment for parents. Our artists adapt their show, by altering the light and sound for example, and our Front of House Managers create a supportive atmosphere where audiences can move around or make noise, etc.
