Shhh... the elves are very shy

27 Nov 2017

Just like busy, shy little elves we've been working away on a new show. And now its ready to come out! Faye Greenwood will be sharing her knowledge and research into the lives of elves at The Bungo in Glasgow on 2nd and 3rd December and at Carnegie Hall Dunfermline on 7th, 8th and 9th. Look carefully, and you might also get to see some of her elfin friends. Happy spotting!

Thank you!

What a lovely summer we've had with Ipdip; Head in the Clouds touring in Wales and Calvinball a great success at the Botanics in Edinburgh as part of the Fringe. A major behind-the-scenes player in all of this was our producer the Wee Maverick herself, Janis Marshall-Reilly, so here she is in classy black and white. We'll be taking a little time now to write reports, some fresh applications and work on new ideas, that might include elves... watch this space.

Heading to Wales

03 Jun 2017

Our sheep are getting very excited about their tour in Wales in July; hoping to meet some friendly new faces - maybe even some sheep? There are dates here, more about Head in the Clouds here, or click on this one for a wee trailer for the show.

Calvinball takes to the field again

01 Jun 2017

We're taking to the great outdoors this August with Calvinball - our outdoor show for babies, toddlers, little ones and bigger ones. It's always a little different and heaps of fun whatever the weather. Go to the Edfringe website to get tickets and there's more information and pics here

Big Lottery Funding

01 Mar 2017

Had to keep the big news under wraps for a while but now we can shout it from the rooftops! This spring we have received funding from Awards for All to support two weeks of free performances of Head in the Clouds. These shows will run alongside our Puppet Animation Festival tour and take place as visits to groups of young families who wouldn't otherwise be accessing live performance. It's an ambition Ipdip has had from the very beginning so we're super-excited to be realising it!

Puppet Animation Festival Tour

20 Feb 2017

We're delighted to be touring Head in the Clouds with the Puppet Animation Festival this Easter - on the festival website you can see some of the excellent company we'll be keeping. And if you have a look at our dates page and see if we'll be coming to a venue near you!

Sell-out Laurels

27 Oct 2016

We're very happy to announce that Head in the Clouds has been given Sell-out Laurels from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August. A full run of packed out shows officially recognised by the Fringe Society with these majestic leaves. Thank you!

Head in the Clouds

05 Oct 2016

Cirrus had a marvellous time in August, meeting hundreds of new friends and never once letting the sheep escape out into the gardens. The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh was once again an excellent, beautiful venue; and this year we were in fine Fringe company with other great baby theatre happening across the city (as noted by Lyn Gardner on her Guardian blog). Time now for a little rest to plan our spring tour and start working on some new ideas...

Anonymouse

05 Jun 2016

Anonymouse had a splendid time touring as part of the 2016 Puppet Animation Festival making new friends across Scotland. We also made a trip down to Cockermouth in the Lake District and now have a taste for adventure we hope to expand on in the future. There is more here about the show itself and you can watch this little film made by Jack Nurse at Wonder Fools

Calvinball

05 Oct 2015

Our outdoor performance for babies was first played in Glasgow during the Commonwealth Games and then as part of the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe in the beautiful Botanics. In the summer of 2015 we toured to sunny green spaces around Scotland, occasionally damp muddy ones, and shared a lot of joy. There's more about the piece here.
