Anna Newell Theatre Adventures presents


A dance show for audiences of babies aged 3-12 months

Full of silver, light and wonder, Shimmer is a unique, dream-like dance show for audiences of babies and their adults.

Shimmer invites its audiences into an immersive reflective space created by Katie Davenport animated by a twinkling original score by David Goodall, gentle choreography by Hayley Earlam that responds to its individual tiny audience members and stunning wraparound video art by Conan McIvor.

Directed by Anna Newell.

Co-produced by Anna Newell and The Civic, Tallaght.

Presented in association with The Network of Extraordinary.

Shimmer tours to The Network For Extraordinary Audiences venues in Autumn 2021. Funded by The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon.

*Please note that a Covid-19 Vaccination Cert is required to attend the performance on the 18th of October*

‘Shimmer is sensational! An absolute feast for the senses. My baby was engaged and enthralled throughout, as was I. Shimmer brings together dance, music, light and space in a way which sparks the imagination and evokes wonder from both the young and old.’


‘...wonderfully designed and so engaging for both myself and baby . My daughter took in every movement and sound around her and was smiling from start to finish!’
