A fun and immersive theatrical production for early learners comes to Kirkcudbright next month as DG Arts Live continues its programme of bringing live performance arts to Dumfries and Galloway.

A production for the very young exploring how the world around us is created from different shapes, textures and materials comes in the shape of Starcatchers and Branar Theatre’s The Shape of Things on Wednesday, 16 November, in St Cuthbert’s Church Hall, St Mary’s Street, Kirkcudbright at 10.15am.

Working with Branar artistic director Marc MacLochlainn, Ailie Cohen (Cloudman, The Secret Life of Suitcases) will create a special environment that the children and their parents and carers will enter. This environment will be filled with textures, colours and shapes designed to stimulate and engage the children.

The audience meets two performers and a playful puppet called Cubert, a curious cube whose job it is to rearrange the shape of the world.

Set in a soft and tactile environment, and designed for children aged six months to two years and their adults, this interactive story is told through puppetry, object theatre, music and sound.
