Branar is one of Ireland’s leading theatre companies making work for children. Based in Galway in the West of Ireland, Branar are renowned for creating highly imaginative and beautiful work that exists within and beyond the Irish language.
Branar exists to create wonderful arts experiences for children so that they and their imaginations may thrive. In this statement of purpose there is, of course, a play on words, imeartas focail. In Branar we love language and spraoi is very much a part of who we are and what we do: playful is one of our values. Branar is about wonder and wondering, iontas agus ionadh, about being wonderful and wonder-full, sa tóir ar an iontais.
