dog and string theatre

Dog and String is a touring theatre founded in 1995. The company is based in Ireland and has toured  in Ireland, The UK, Greece, Spain and France performing in Art Centres, Theatres, Festivals, Community Halls, schools and on the street.

It was founded by professional visual artists who felt there was an opportunity to bring visually stimulating work to younger audiences who did not have easy access to art galleries or theatres. In the spirit of multidisciplinary art work Dog and String has brought together musicians who act, sculptors who write, artists who are puppeteers, trolls that dance and actors who teach.

Storytelling, live music, rod puppets, hand puppets, shadow puppets, life size figures, masks and mime, are all used to create plays which engage children in a lively interaction with the world of the imagination.

Original music is an important element in the productions and is specially composed for each show. The company is currently offering four productions suitable for different age groups and audience types.
