A show for babies aged 0-12 months
created by Anna Newell

presented in association with The Civic, Tallaght

I AM BABA is a theatre adventure for babies created by internationally renowned theatre director Anna Newell (www.annanewell.co.uk) 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.

Presented by Anna Newell Theatre Productions

Read more on Why Babies Need The Arts

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.

This is what audiences so far have had to say about the unique experience that is I AM BABA:

“This was honestly one of the most amazing experiences.  I was nearly in tears; it was magic – five babies under one and you could hear a pin drop.  I have never seen the likes of it before.”

“She was mesmerised.  It had everything she loved; singing, music, mirrors, friendly faces –  without being over-stimulating.  She was absolutely fascinated.  One happy baby.”
