Interactive online performance for babies and toddlers

Troggle and Mira are best friends who live apart - one deep underground, one high in the sky - but they still share treasures and adventures together.

"Up and Down" offers an interactive, online theatrical experience for children under 5 and their grown-ups, both near and far - a whole-family event that will bring everyone together.  

Presented by Ipdip Theatre, and developed in May 2020. the aim of "Up and Down" is to support the bridging of the gap that has arisen in lockdown bewtween very young children and their grandparents as well as other important adults in their lives. Families have found that when communicating through video chat, a shared activity of some kind supports connection where adult-centric sitting and talking falls short. 

Ipdip Theatre use their skills in creating multi-sensory performances to offer a lived-through, shared experience for distanced families. Using Zoom, with the performers and different households each in their own screen, the multi-sensory interation is achieved through an adult in each house being complicit in a few pre-planned objects, snacks and effects. Families are spread across households but everyone is active - for example, when Mira drops a silver ball of scrunched up cloud from the sky, everyone has a ball of silver foil fall into their ready hands and can see the other on the screen receiving theirs. 

Ipdip Theatre are a Scottish-based theatre company who create work for very young children and their families with the express purpose of encouraging interaction and imaginative play. The lead artists on this project are Charlotte Allan and EmmaClaire Brightlyn. 

These performances are free as part of Dunoon Burgh Hall's Easter Holiday Activities, however Booking is essential as places are limited.
