Fall and Float 12 - 15 Oct 2023

An uplifting new dance performance for children aged seven years and over by Mónica Muñoz.

In this exciting, impressive and highly visual show, two dancers create a magical world to explore childhood, adventure, fantasy, imagination and friendship. Balloons are used by the dancers to evoke important moments of childhood and spark memories and emotions.

Two extraordinary dancers, Mónica Muñoz's playful choreography and a joyful soundscape by Denis Clohessy combine to make Fall and Float a delight for the senses and an ideal early experience of dance performance for children and their grown-ups!

Presented in partnership with Dublin Theatre Festival as part of the Theatre for Children season at DTF 2023

Relaxed Performances

There will be relaxed performances of Fall and Float on Friday 13 October at 12.15pm and Saturday 14 October @ 2pm. Relaxed performances are aimed at families or school groups with children who are on the autism spectrum or those who have sensory sensitivities and will be tailored for the comfort of your child. The sound will be at a lower volume and the lights will be dimmed rather than completely dark, we will warn you of any loud noises and we will have a special chill-out area where your child can relax.

A relaxed performance information pack, with photographs and a synopsis of the play which may assist your child to prepare for the performance is available via the link below. For further information please contact The Ark on (01) 670 7788 or
