MamaBabaMe: Preview

Saturday 6th May, 12.45pm

Age range: 18 months – 3 years

£4 full / £1.50 Good Neighbour



Presented by Starcatchers and Curious Seed




the emergence of a baby or other young from the body of its mother; the start of life as a physically separate being.




the way in which two or more people or things are connected, or the state of being connected.

Every new relationship is a journey – it can be tender, competitive, challenging, joyful. But where does that begin?

Join us at the ringside of our mini arena for MamaBabaMe to witness this exciting new dance, theatre and live music experience made especially for infants and their grown ups. Through playful movement, dance and sound, MamaBabaMe explores these profound new relationships and how this eternal bond evolves and grows.

Everyone will recognise something of their own relationships, as parent or child – this is a show for young children and anyone who’s ever been one!
