‘The Streets Are Ours’ is a collaborative project to create a promenade performance by Galway children combining parkour, contemporary dance and circus skills. Baboró will work with Arch 8 (The Netherlands), Galway Community Circus and Galway Dance Project to create and deliver this project.


The artists and children will develop the project online from their homes in Galway and The Netherlands throughout March 2021. Together they will build an improvisational dance performance that will be recorded in a socially distanced manner to be shared with the public as soon as safely possible.


The collaboration will begin at the start of March and continue through to the end of the month when all their hard work will be captured!

The Streets Are Home

Throughout March and April, our artists were developing their performances through zoom workshops. Special thanks to Annie Hughes for allowing us to take a peek into her performance development and practice.
