I AM BABA is a theatre adventure for babies created by internationally renowned theatre director Anna Newell (www.annanewell.ie) and composer David Goodall. Their shows for early years have been seen on six continents, off-Broadway and in every single Sure Start in Belfast.
I AM BABA – a magical adventure of song, lights and textures for babies aged 0-12 months. It’s a show about identity, agency and personhood. For babies.
I AM BABA is full of gorgeous live harmony singing and playful objects – jellyfish-like scarves dance and tiny lights fly in this intimate immersive performance which happens inside a specially designed tent that holds just 6 babies – each with their adult guest.
I AM BABA was the International Early Childhood Arts Commission funded by the 4 Dublin Local Authorities in 2017 through Arts Council Ireland’s Invitation to Collaboration Fund. This national tour was funded by the Arts Council.
I AM BABA has been touring since 2017 and has been performed more than 500 times in Ireland and toured to Canada in 2022.
This 2023 tour is more than 14 weeks long, tours to 20 counties and more than 1000 babies! It is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland and is in partnership with venues across Ireland and with the National Network of Children & Young People’s Services Committees (www.cypsc.ie).
