BABYBE FESTIVAL III ED. - Street Storytelling Exhibition

Sunday 6th of October 2019 - Oscar Square

A family friendly Performance accompanied by a Street Storytelling Exhibition.

A modern satiric Irish tale that explores the themes of “Culture Diversities” and "Mental Health" in an artistic, colorful and playful way through theatre, puppet show, storytelling, live illustration, music, dance and meditation. We built up our work inspired by "The Irish Fisherman", a tale written by Jorge Gonzalez and illustrated by Emiliya Tashchieva.

This tale is a sensitive reminder that wonderful things can happen by being curious, open-minded, and willing to leave our comfort zone. 


The "Irish Fisherman" was performed by a bunch of great artists:

- Irish Fisherman & Old Man - Grainne O'Carrol;

- the Snake - Helena O'Connor;

- the Bees - MyArt ballerinas leaded by Veronika SardiKo;

- the Pandas - our Audience coordinated by Sandra Villegas;

- the Cat Monk - Claudia Kunkel.


The Street Storytelling Exhibition, curated by Anna Rita Mele, displays the tale "The Irish Fisherman" tale.
