Christine Devaney is the creator and director of MamaBabaMe, our beautiful dance, physical theatre and live music experience created especially for babies and young children aged 0-3 and their grown-ups.
She is passionate about dance and the transformative possibilities of experiencing dance, theatre and art through participating, creating or the observing of it. “I wanted to create a show that explores the beauty, depth and complexity of the vital connection between babies and the adults in their lives, and also celebrates it. MamaBabaMe is a performance that baby and adult can experience together because we can all, babies included, respond in a very powerful way to a beautiful piece of live classical music and dance.”
