Conor: at the end of the Universe 9 - 13 Nov 2016

The Ark welcome Collapsing Horse with a theatrical adventure for children aged 4- 6 (and those who remember what it was like to be 4-6!)

Conor is on a mission.

A mission to get to the outer edge of the Universe before he runs out of time.
But how long until the end of the Universe? How much space? How much time?

Conor: at the end of the Universe is a sensory journey through space at time-bending speeds. This engaging production uses puppets, design, animation and music as Conor and his Grandad bring you to places that you've never seen before.

Performances on Sun 13 Nov are part of Science Foundation Ireland’s Science Week 2016

Touring as part of the Short Works Network.
