Cata Isle Mime Theatre

Cata Isle Mime Theatre was founded in late 2008 by Astrid Adler. Cata Isle Mime Theatre combined mime with elements of puppeteering, using a minimum of simple props. Poured into sound and light and make believe it shows you that everything is possible on stage. Refreshing theatre to see and work with. Cata Isle Mime Theatre pushes the boundaries of Irish theatre.
