Not one to do things by halves...

Well good afternoon!

I'm Rhian, and today's my first day at National Theatre Wales as Communications Assistant, and it's also my first day actually living in Cardiff!

For the past 18 months i've been a part of the team at Sherman Theatre just over the road in Cathays. I wore a number of hats over there from Digital Marketing Assistant to Ticketing and Reception assistant to Development Assistant. The varied role i held there has really helped me in learning more…

My home town

My home town is silver and shimmer, seagull cries and echoes. It lies at the end of a long road that twists and coils through hills and valleys.
 
My home town is small, but vast. No one lives there, but everyone is from there. It is filled with ghosts of generations long gone who stand on street corners waiting for buses, queue patiently at the…

NYTW perform at Arad Goch Opening Doors International Festival by Dafydd Lansley

I’m Dafydd Lansley but you can call me Daf. I’ve been a part of National Youth Theatre of Wales for over three years now and each year offers a new challenge to be faced. This is the first time we have ever remounted a production and on top of that we’re doing it in three days. Weirdly enough, it all came back to us pretty quickly on the first day. The wonders of muscle memory, eh?

We spent two days in the amazing Arad Goch Theatre and now we’re treading familiar ground in the…

WE ARE BACK!! NYTW/Frantic Assembly by Rhys Warrington

Rhys’ Blog – dead born grow

 

WE ARE BACK!! This is the first time that I’ve ever remounted a show and its proving to be a real challenge…but still very exciting. 7 months since we last performed the piece its interesting how quickly everything comes flooding back…the body does remember (something Frantic assured us of last summer).

We started by recapping and re-remembering the major movement sections of the piece…which was simple enough to do…but finding the detail…

This was followed by an all female company called Offshoots with After the Flags and Bands about a group of young women who become friends at the…
