An Grianán performances kindly supported by Creative Ireland for Cruinniú na nÓg, Ireland’s national day of creativity for children.

Anna Newell Theatre Adventures present Still Here, a wordless physical theatre adventure for ages 3-6 years.

we are still here. we are stuck in the same place.

and it’s not a good or interesting place.

it’s frustrating, it’s boring and it’s a bit scary.

but we can take ourselves elsewhere, both on our own and together

because we are still standing, still dreaming, still playing.

because we are still here.

A wordless physical theatre piece with a unique musical score played live on baroque guitars, Still Here is a quirky playful exploration of the journey from restriction, suspicion and fear to collaboration and celebration, gently exploring some of the feelings of the last couple of years and our changing times.

Presented as part of the 2022 Network For Extraordinary Audiences programme and funded by Arts Council of Ireland, Still Here was originally commissioned by South County Dublin Arts Office & Ruaille Buaille Children’s Festival.

Previous shows presented by Anna Newell at An Grianán include the early years shows I Am Baba, Shimmer and babyGROOVE.
