Tá Bláth suite i ndomhan gan dathanna ná plandaí. Tagann buachaill ar leabhar draíochta, tugann sé abhaile faoi rún é agus feiceann sé bláthanna don chéad uair. Tar éis dó paicéad síolta a aimsiú i seansiopa tugann sé faoi eachtra chun beochta chur sa bhláth. Bláth is based on the children's book The Flower by John Light & Lisa Evans. Designed by the artist Maeve Clancy with original music by Colm Mac Con Iomaire (The Frames), Bláth is a non-verbal show that will enchant audiences as they enter a world made entirely of paper.
