Grand Soft Day - New Show By Branar Coming To Castlebar

Grand Soft Day is a curious and charming new show for young children that celebrates the wonder of the world around us...

Splashing in puddles, wind whipping your hair, crunching frost under your feet, and rain dripping on your nose, now that’s a grand soft day. A playful show about always being prepared even though you do not know what the day will bring.

Commissioned by The Ark, Grand Soft Day is a predominantly non-verbal piece that combines physical storytelling, live music and colourful wellies, performed by Greg Hall, Helen Gregg, Jonathan Gunning and Linda Scaramella. It is an international co-production from the award winning teams of Branar (Ireland) and New International Encounter (UK/Norway). Grand Soft Day is a curious and charming new show for young children years that celebrates the wonder of the world around us.
