Tiny Shows

Do you have an idea for a show for young audiences?
Would you like to explore that idea?
Do you want to work with new art forms?

Branar’s Tiny Shows/Seóanna Bídeach initiative offers artists & theatre makers time and space to explore & develop new skills, new roles and new work in a developmental context over a week-long residency.



“Hatch” has been developed by Roscommon Arts Centre as part of their ongoing Branar : Connect Initiative.

Invitations are extended by Roscommon Arts Centre to two of the Tiny Show participants to spend a a further two week development period in Roscommon Arts Centre with access to the centre’s resources to “hatch” their Tiny Shows, including a work-in-progress sharing.


Resource Sharing

Branar supports a panel of artists who require rehearsal space, production support or dramaturgical support in the development of theatre for young audiences.
