Hi everyone,

Fio have got a performance coming up in August called "Swarm", a site-specific investigation into immigration and how it can affect any one of us.  Fio's ethos is to offer opportunities to people from all backgrounds and experience, and so as part of the project, we're putting together a group of community performers, and we'd like to open it out to members of TEAM! 

The rehearsal dates are 25th July - 10th August, but you wouldn't be required every day - it's likely to be a couple of evenings a week.  The performance dates are 11-14th August.  We've already started weekly workshops on Friday evenings in Cardiff Bay, and you're more than welcome to join us.

We're also keen to meet people who'd like to gain experience backstage as well, whether it be stage management, design etc. 

If you're interested in any of the above, drop me an e-mail at alan@wearefio.co.uk.  Looking forward to hearing from you!

Community is not a dirty word”

I wrote those words in my notebook whilst en route to the Acta Community Theatre Festival in Bristol last week.

There can be connotations of the words “Community Theatre” that are less than helpful. As a working professional in Theatre I've frequently come across assumptions that Community work is somehow lesser than the “High Art” of Professionals putting plays on stages. Indeed, there's even talk of some organisations using “Community Engagement” just as a cynical ticking of a box in order to attract more funding.I'm very pleased to report that National Theatre Wales is not one of them. As a TEAM Panel Member I see first hand how central to NTW the Communities of Wales are.

It was both refreshing & encouraging to see the Community celebrated in style at the Acta festival. With workshops running throughout the day giving us a chance to connect with other practitioners, share ideas & expand our horizons.

One person in a discussion I participated in defined Community work as “Locally Sourced”. I quite like that. Theatre that gives the people of a specific community the opportunity to use their authentic voice authored by & performed by the people excites me. This is activism, empowering people to validate themselves, affirm their beliefs by speaking out, This in turn, if the beliefs are sound can help empower others. This can lead to change, away from a problem to a solution.

For this change to really happen requires more than patting each other on the back for a good show done. Change requires a commitment to the work, spreading the word, watching the ripples turn to waves.

Encouragingly enough, Acta's Festival was more than a local thing. Practitioners & performers had come from across Europe. The connections we made were the same: The desire to empower ourselves & others to make work affecting social change. The themes are universal, the practice excitingly different.

Attending “The People's Platform” in North Merthyr the next day reminded me that Community in action really is an empowering thing.

As we sat around our table at the Penydarren Social Club, debating the questions put to us by the cast I realised something… “People want places to gather, a chance to discuss, define & resolve issues concerning the Community. Everyone these days sits at home with their computer & TV on, front door locked, people don't talk to each other anymore”… As we sat in this packed out Social Club, strangers & neighbours chatting, debating, sharing ideas.

Events like “The People's Platform” are very inspiring & provide a vital spark of debate. It doesn't even have to be a large scale event like these that starts the fire, I'm sure there are smaller scale TEAM initiatives that could get people talking. I, for one, would love to hear about them. The trick is to keep going.

TEAM is National Theatre Wales' Community – Let's keep using it to make a difference.

Wonderman TEAM preview invite

Gagglebabble and National Theatre Wales have teamed up to create Wonderman, which will be heading to Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  There will be a preview in Cardiff before heading on up to the Scottish capital and TEAM members are invited to come along! 

When: 28th July at 5pm

Where: Tram Shed, Grangetown

What is it about: Wonderman is a unique gig-theatre take on Roald Dahl’s short stories for adults, combining a sizzling hot score of original live music, macabre characters, soaring imaginings and thrilling twists and turns, all injected with a wicked sense of dark humour. A celebration of the wonder of one of Britain’s best loved storytellers for his centenary year.

Prepare to expect the unexpected!

Tickets are limited so act quickly by emailing team@nationaltheatrewales.org to put your name down for a complimentary ticket.

Hi TEAM,

Mercury Theatre Wales would like to invite you to a sharing of the work we have been creating during our Domestic Abuse Research and Development project. This sharing is sponsored by AM Julie Morgan and will take place in the Neuadd of the National Assembly Building in Cardiff Bay on Friday the 17th of June between 14:45 and 16:00. 

The aim of the project is to explore this important topic using the stories gathered from members of Rhondda Cynnon Taf Womens Aid and help those suffering from these crimes find their voice. Later this year we are aiming to fund a touring production that will grow from this work. It’s important to us that we gather feedback and opinions on what’s created in these early stages in order that we make the best work possible.

If you'd like to attend please let us know by emailing 
info@mercurytheatrewales.co.uk
