Baubo Theatre creates high-octane, physical theatre, rooted strongly in visual design and traditions of clown and bouffon. Our street theatre shows, walkabouts and indoor performances bring a unique blend of physicality, mischief and rich visual spectacle. We bring a breath of fresh air to audiences, transforming an ordinary day into something extraordinary.
We create performances that are concerned with creating a magical, immersive experience for the audience; one that is both transformative and instantly relatable, non-realist and yet rooted in an undeniable human truth. Our work is highly visual and physical, incorporating objects, puppets and live music with text to create beautiful, high energy performances.
Baubo was founded in 2018 by Liza Cox and Alex Herring, and has received funding from the Arts Councils of Ireland and England. Baubo were the recipients of the 2021 N.E.S.T (New Emerging Street Talent) residency with Waterford’s Spraoi Festival. Baubo’s work has also been programmed at Galway Theatre Festival, Pitch’d Circus Festival, Liverpool Without Walls, the House of Suarez Vogue Ball, and Scene & Heard festival in Dublin.
