Barabbas' the cube A mobile, stainless steel 8-foot square cube, with a capability of carrying twenty-four spectators on seats suspended on the sides. The Cube is a mobile theatrical space that plays with the idea of perspective and performance.
Spectators view a performance manipulated by puppeteers inside the Cube, through purpose built eyepieces and headphones; as the performance plays, the Cube moves silently through a public place.
"this is Barabbas at their most mischievous best, confirming their incredible ability to confound"
"Barabbas' the cube is more than just a box of tricks."
The Sunday Tribune
"one of Ireland's most creative forces."
