Lullaby LEAF Project for Children with Down Syndrome

Lullaby LEAF is an immersive, inclusive, and highly participatory theatre experience designed specifically for very young children with Down Syndrome. It is based on and inspired by LEAF multisensory theatre production which Ceol Connected developed in 2017 as Theatre Company in Residence in Draíocht.

What is it like to live on a giant leaf? Prepare for whooshing winds, gigantic raindrops, busy bugs, and bursts of colourful canopy in this joyful multi-sensory workshop designed for young children with Down Syndrome. With the gentle unfurling of a leaf, a soothing sensory world is brought to life through music and song, light, smell, movement, and touch.

Devised and created by director Joanna Williams, and performers Orla Kelly and Thomas Johnston, Lullaby LEAF is a captivating, fun-filled, and immersive sensory experience for the very young and their families/carers.

Workshops will be held specifically for young children with Down Syndrome (ages 2-7 approx) in November 2022. Full details and updates on the project will be posted on our Facebook page at the below link. 

This project is in collaboration with Creative Ireland Cavan, Meath and Monaghan.
