Hi everyone,

A really great breakdown to share with you; we're putting a company together for As Long As The Heart Beats. They'll work with Ben Tinniswood and Marcus Romer to create an intimate journey for audiences, inspired by amazing stories of the NHS, that have been shared with us by people all over Wales and beyond.

So if this is your kind of thing; if you have experience working closely with audiences and improvising, get in touch. We are particularly interested in meeting performers of Philippine and South Asian heritage, to reflect the work-force of the NHS in South Wales.

Please share far and wide!

Thanks! x

Fucktons of Fairies: New Action Theatre Group

South Wales theatre company Fucktons of Faries are back, and we're embarking on an exciting new project. 

We're starting a theatre laboratory group, and we are inviting artists to come and join us. The group's explorations will be rooted in Action Theatre, the methodology developed by performance artist Ruth Zaporah. Action Theatre is a psycho-physical approach, that trains the body and mind to become more aware and present. Through structured improvisations, the group will train as an ensemble, together building performance skills, sharing creative ideas and reflections.

Sessions will run every Thursday, from 7:30pm - 9:30pm, at WMC.

If you'd like to join us, and be a part of this collective exploration, please write to emrysbarnes@gmail.com, outlining your interest in the project and your relevant eperience. We look forward to hearing from you!

Fucktons of Fairies

Hi everyone... 

I am an MA student at Chester University. I am currently creating a project based on Welsh myths and legends. The project will look at storytelling. 

I am looking for at least two actors who are around the North Wales area preferably Wrexham. This is a good experience, however, I do not have a budget. 

If you are interested please contact me.

Fio are very excited to bring the rehearsals for Death and The Maiden to the busy centre of Cardiff! 


On Saturday 21st October from 11:00 to 15:00 join us @ Capitol Shopping Centre and get a sneek peek into our rehearsal process!

We are opening the doors and inviting the public to come and meet our wonderful cast and enjoy some of the rehearsal process as much as we are. 

Ariel Dorfman's spectacular thriller Death and The Maiden tells the story of Paulina Salas, a torture victim of a brutal millitary dictatorship. Paulina is full of fear, gripped by a secret terror that she only shares with her husband, Gerado. One night, a kindly stranger, Dr. Miranda, arrives at their door late at night unannounced, forcing Paulina to confront her deepest fears face-to-face. 

See you there!
