Why Dirliebane?

(It's Scots for funny bone!)

Dirliebane Theatre Company creates clown theatre performances for children, young people and their families.

Our shows involve gentle, character clowning that creates naïve, optimistic, fun, light, strong characters that children and young people can engage with. We develop our shows and films with the help of children and young people to access and explore their thoughts and experiences at key stages in their lives.

BOUNCE – Challenge Enthusiasts are five short films currently available for children in P2-P5 (aged 6-10). These comedy films follow challenge enthusiasts Sally and Destiny, who discover that the challenges unearth all sorts of emotions. These films explore emotional literacy.

SPACE – How to be Ready For Anything are five short films currently available for children aged P6-P7 (aged 9-12). The two characters – Stella and Dorothy – have to create a new online presentation with the theme How to be Ready For Anything, exploring the strategies required to keep well and healthy. Stella and Dorothy prove that they are, nearly almost, ready for anything. These films explore health and wellbeing.

Our previous productions are – BIG (for nursery children transitioning to Primary 1, toured 2016 and 2019) and SPACE (for Primary 7s transitioning to High School, toured 2018 and 2019).

BOUNCE, the theatre production, underwent development in late 2019/early 2020. The next exciting phase will be to create a Virtual Reality film of BOUNCE followed by a live tour of schools and venues.

“That was perfect. It was a perfect show. There is nothing else out there like it. The children loved it. You were the kids and they were you.” Deputy Head on BIG

#MentalHealthMatters

YES, Maths, English Science are all important to teach our kids, but…

It’s also important to teach them how to look after their #mentalhealth. A nice place to start is with our short film about how to #calm down when you’re feeling #nervous or #angry.
