Sightless Cinema presents: Ballymuck Exchange

Offline

Come and immerse yourself in Sightless Cinema’s new hilarious audio comedy with a live audience. It’s a cold November night in the early nineteen seventies. Denis is settling in for a few whiskeys, and a quiet night operating one of the last manual telephone exchanges, in the close-knit village of Ballymuck -somewhere near Drogheda. ‘Blow-in’ Tony needs an ambulance for his wife Sinéad who’s gone into labour, but the axle is bust from the potholes, the GP is in a poker game, and the new Guard has everyone on edge. When an urgent call comes in from the Missions in Africa, Denis’ wires soon get crossed and the whole village gets caught up in the tangle.

Ballymuck Exchange is the latest audio play devised and recorded online by Sightless Cinema, Tallaght with director Ciarán Taylor. The group of blind and visually impaired participants have been creating live audio events in Cinemas since 2015. Funded by South Dublin County Council, and supported by Contact Studio. Thanks to Rua Red and Civic Theatre Tallaght.

I am Baba

Offline

I AM BABA is a theatre adventure for babies created by internationally renowned theatre director Anna Newell and composer David Goodall. Their shows for early years have been seen on five 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. Neuroscience tells us that what happens in the first three years of life doesn’t simply affect behaviour, but has a major impact on brain formation. And we believe that it’s crucial that some of those experiences are beautiful, lyrical, imaginative, creative. From the very beginning of life. I AM BABA is a magical adventure comprised 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.
