Seven Years On - Thank You and Happy New Year!

Seven years ago, towards the end of December, I was getting ready to leave Manchester to step into a new life as Artistic Director of the as yet unformed National Theatre Wales. It was an emotional farewell to Manchester, where I’d re-opened Contact, a theatre that put young people and emerging artists at the core of everything it did, some years before, and where my friendships and artistic partnerships ran pretty deep. However, if you’d told me then that I’d be returning seven years later I… Continue

Thank You!

It’s just been officially announced that at the end of the year I’ll be leaving National Theatre Wales to become Artistic Director of the Manchester International Festival. 

My time at NTW has been a truly wonderful experience, and the community of artists and enthusiasts I have had the privilege to be part of here has had a massive impact on me.  So while there will be lots to say over the coming months, I wanted to start by saying a huge thank you to everyone in the NTW community…

The Last Days of Laura K: A New Immersive Digital Mystery

Our friends at BBC Writersroom have just released an incredibly exciting and ambitious new piece of work online.  Working with leading UK writers and a top production team, The Last Hours of Laura K is a ground-breaking digital experience placing the audience at the heart of the story. Using 24 hours of footage from the fictional surveillance programme, SaturnEye, this is a disconcertingly intimate, unfiltered and impartial look into Laura’s last hours before her death. As Kate…

Hey John! So, so sad I couldn't make it to your celebration tonight - still can't travel that far yet but I'm working on that! I hope you have a fabulous night. I'm sitting here in a very rainy North Wales wishing we could just get beamed-up to the Castle Arcade. Failing that not being possible in the next few hours, we wanted to say that, without you and Devinda and the ethos of NTW behind us, Film Team wouldn't still be going strong. We've got masses of exciting opportunities to take us to the next level next year, and, crucially, we're linked to the incredible Tate Circuit programme at Mostyn now. It's all good! And it's all thanks to you all giving us so many opportunities - and masses of fun along the way. Thank you from the bottom of our Film Team hearts John - see you in Manchester - it's much closer! Have a blast - love ever, Jan, Adam, Euan, Addie, Ameila & Holly xxxxxx

Hey John. I remember chatting to you about NTW casting not long ago, and following up from that I've seen the breakdown Sarah Leigh put out yesterday. Again its a case of ticking boxes, army training, Cardiff base, musical/dance ability, etc. Really hope I get a chance to audition for ou guys this time!

All the best.

I hope you did too!

Many thanks.

Hi John, Here's the link to yesterdays BBC show I was on. If you scroll to about 130mins, you'll find the BHC feature (and eventually, me) X http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03wg07c

I didn't say where I am based - in Mountain Ash, between Pontypridd and Aberdare.

Have been meaning to make contact since NTW began and a conversation with Carl Lavery has pushed me into action - he said 'I must talk to you'. I do find the approaches you have been finding in NTW inspiring and imaginative so its about time I got in touch! I grew up in West Wales and have been active making work as director and performer in the South West and Wales since 1996. For various reasons in the last 6 years I have been more engaged with teaching and research. I think it is time now to make work, be a practitioner again, I have a number of ideas which are perhaps 'at the edges of theatre' that I would like to develop, and am wondering how I might weave something into the NTW net(work). Could we have a chat sometime as I am not sure how my experience and skills best fit into the different channels of development you have at NTW? You can see some information on my profile page and my website is www.ailsarichardson.com Best, Ailsa

Hi John - didn't get a chance to say hello or even goodbye yesterday... we'd had a punishing journey down on the rugby train and were under pressure to shove back on to get home again - 2 carriages! can you believe it???   we survived standing for 2 hours and got seats around Ludlow... despite that, Film Team had an amazing time - thanks again to you all for a fantastic party!

Hello John,

Really interested in getting more involved with NTW, despite my age! Any advice about Group/s to join please? Acting and Directing work to date mainly with schools, Colleges, and some Adult groups, but keen to do more and to network! Have offered to work on a voluntary basis at NTW if appropriate and required.
