Rothar 27 Sep - 1 Oct 2023

Created by Branar and performed by Miquel Barceló and Moisés Mas García, this joyful production for children aged 4+ celebrates the places your imagination can take you.

Where can you go when there's nowhere to go?

In the little bike shop at the end of town, a world of adventure awaits. Two boys and their bikes travel the world in a show that conjures play from the everyday and where anything is possible.

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 Rothar on Friday 29 September at 12.15pm and Saturday 30 September @ 11am. 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
