Polar Bear & Penguin is a charming play for young audiences written and performed by John Currivan & Paul Curley

Created for children aged 5+, I worked with the show's producer and creator in developing a visual identity for the production. First staged at the Draíocht in Blanchardstown in 2021, it has gone on to tour nationally, with performances at venues such as Dublin's The Ark, Kildare's Riverbank Arts Centre, and the Baboró International Arts Festival for Children in Galway.

Polar Bear & Penguin was originally developed by Paul Curley & Draíocht with the support of The Arts Council YPCE Project Award & Meitheal CPS – A Branar Initiative. Photos: Ste Murray
