Infant Imaginings in Sligo

Infant Imaginings, Helium’s work-in-progress performance for parents, babies and their siblings has been visiting local clinics in County Sligo over the last few weeks. Here’s a sample of what the audience experiences while they wait to see the public health nurse.

The performers are Helene Hugel (Helium’s artistic director) and Sean Callagy. Kareen Pennefather from Monkeyshine Theatre is collaborating director and Niamh O’Connor has been documenting the project.

Supported by Sligo Rapid and funded by Sligo Arts Office.
For more information on the project check out our programme section
