Basher Bacon's Big Adventure
Time: 4:30pm - 5:30pm
Dominic Moore is a leading writer and puppeteer for children’s television programmes in Ireland. His writing and puppetry credits (for RTE) include: The Why Guy, Hubble, Sattitude, Wordwitch, The Swamp, The Morbegs and The Rimini Riddle.
This script, devised over 20 years of testing material with young audiences, allows children to interact with the characters and become immersed in the world of the story, participating through answering questions asked to them by different characters in they meet during the puppet show. It is an exciting experience for young audiences; facilitated with care and attention by Dominic. The session will benefit children because “these activities and experiences (should) help the child to make sense of the world; to question, to speculate and to find solutions” (Arts in Education Charter 2012).
Dominic invites everyone to join Basher Bacon’s team on a heroic journey through a fairytale land. Guided with wit, courage and derring-do, children will: solve the problem of how to defeat the evil Wizard and help Basher Bacon confront his odious sister Vera. Also, they will imagine the different ways to win a mighty battle with a horrible monster Teapot, and work together with Basher to gain the trust and companionship of Judy.
