- Times & Dates
Presented by Starcatchers and Curious Seed
the emergence of a baby or other young from the body of its mother; the start of life as a physically separate being.
the way in which two or more people or things are connected, or the state of being connected.
Every new relationship is a journey – it can be tender, competitive, challenging, joyful. But where does that begin?
Join us at the ringside of our mini arena for MamaBabaMe to witness this exciting new dance, theatre and live music experience made especially for infants and their grown ups. Through playful movement, dance and sound, MamaBabaMe explores these profound new relationships and how this eternal bond evolves and grows.
Everyone will recognise something of their own relationships, as parent or child – this is a show for young children and anyone who’s ever been one!
Just the Ticket for Scotland’s Toddlers
Starcatchers Scotland’s National Arts and Early Years Organisation has launched a new fundraising scheme, Forward for Families, to provide theatre seats for very young children and their families in need across Scotland.
A recent study suggests more than 200,000 children are growing up in poverty in Scotland. Scottish Government Social Research consistently evidences that access to theatre and cultural experience enriches lives and impacts positively on health and well-being. However a Starcatchers audit of audience participation suggests 72% rarely engage in cultural experiences with their babies and many have never engaged with their local community arts venue.
Forward for Families will enable parents with very young children from all walks of life in Scotland to experience a high-quality shared theatre experience.
Seats will be allocated within the Scottish tour of Starcatchers and Edinburgh based dance company Curious Seed’s new dance, live music and theatre experience MamaBabaMe, for babies aged 18 months – 3 years and their parents and carers.
Forward for Families asks those that love the theatre to pay forward a ticket, allowing another family in their community or further afield to engage in the shared-experience. Donations start at £5, which is a step towards a full ticket, £10 to buy a big or little seat, £20 to admit an adult and child or £40 to include four seats. Click here to donate.
