Rethinking Education

A group for anyone who wants to help us develop an NTW approach to education.See More
Oct 28, 2014

Profile Information

What I do:
One of the Pypedau Vagabondi Puppets with a strong believe in puppetry, poetry, parade and play.
A little more about me:
I am a puppeteer, poet, performer who has worked with many different people in many different places, from Llandrindod wells (Big Democracy NTW) to Siberia (tour with puppet company Clogless Lobster), from Birmingham (creating a puppet animation with Cerebral Palsy Midlands) to Spain (firm favorites at Casa de los Cuentos) from Butetown, Cardiff (DeGabay, NTW) to Bangor (Blas - Pontio)
I have a strong belief in the power of collective creative exploration and am continually on my own adventure into teaching and learning about and through experiential creative education. Particularly focusing on enabling people who find it hard to engage in traditional teaching methods.
I am becoming increasingly interested in the creation of storytelling parades- mixing the spectacle with the intimate. Also using giant puppets, costume, music and chants the artform of parade becomes fully for its participants rather than a spectator sport - as groups follow well walked or newly created poetic pathways of initiation.

I have been awarded an Arts Council grant to create a bilingual show - The Princesses of Wales, putting the Sass back intro princess and the her story into history.
Our show last year "The Never Hare" toured as far as Aberyswyth Arts Centre to Bornholm international puppet festival, Denmark.
I was awarded the prestigious title of Bard of Machynlleth in 2006 in a pub poetry competition.
Location:
powys
Projects I’m working on:
Big Democracy project - Celf o Gwmpas, Llandrindod Wells - Part of the creative team exploring issued around how austerity has effected disabled people.
Hydroscope-the Story of water - Working with Borth and Talybont schools we (myself, puppeteer Owen Glynne-Davies and animator Jim Elliot) will be facilitating the creation of a puppet animation following the droplet of H20. Funded by Cymerau/Hydrocitizens
-Saved by skirts - mixing Welsh folk myth with the Polish story of Irene Sendler.
- Princesses of Wales Pop up show/ Twywsogesau Cymru - A Arts Council funded show to put the Sass back into princess and the her story into history
