A weird kind of lethargy has been overtaking me recently. These last two days at least. Something to do with nights becoming confused with days and the lots and lots of travelling during the last two weeks. There is more to come next week. I will be going to Gregynog near Newtown for a University conference. I am going to speak for 5 minutes about the project. What to say?!?! And on Thurday Carl and I are going to go the…Continue

Poppy and I swam again today. We accidentally crashed a children's birthday party in the pool. I think we both realised after about half an hour and chose not to share the information with one another for fear that one or the other might make us leave and swim in the colder water of the Plas Crug main pool. We bought chocolate chip muffins and made a mushroom soup. The days are now much brighter and sharper and the…Continue

It was great to go and see 'A Good Night Out' last night in Pontardawe. Having been involved in the rehearsal process, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the end product in all its warm & tender glory, - it brought a tear to my eye and gave me belly laughs by turn. I was very impressed by the extra dimensions brought by the superb audio visuals, Mike Beers sound design, the great band (see you in the Uplands boys), and by Boyds beige budgie smugglers... Nice to see some of my own bits and bobs…Continue

We're busy recruiting staff to start working with us in April, to bring together different ways of working with drama and theatre, with young people aged 16 in Swansea.
We start rolling out workshops in June on the Swansea University campus - and…Continue

Well it started for us via an email asking do we wanna be the band in a play put on in blackwood stute, Hell yeah why not!

It turns out that the reason that we didn't meet up with Karl yesterday was because he fell down the side of the Wawel and got run over by a passing car. He is ok...
The following entry is a record of a visit to the Oriel Davies gallery in Newtown. I travelled with Tina and…Continue

We lost Karl at the Wawel. He ran ahead to set up the crowning shot of his film and we didn't see him again. We were only moments behind him. We searched the Wawel and in the end we had to jump in a taxi and head to the airport. Hopefully he didn't wait too long. It feels like the fitting end to a film. A metaphor for his struggle to save Krakow.…Continue
