Hijinx Theatre smashed it!

After a day of relentless rain (I personally changed clothes three times and boots once to prepare the Woodland Pavilion for a potentially soggy night of outdoor theatre) Hijinx humbly arrived and set the stage for 'The Adventures of Sancho Panza.'

The performance was warm and witty and worked so beautifully on…

3rd Age Critic Review The Audience Marcia Humphries Gielgud Theatre (via Odeon Bridgend)

 

This  National Theatre Live screening was part of the project to broadcast live to cinemas from the London stage . It gives access to London productions at convenient locations for a fraction of the  ticket price. This performance was an encore of a broadcast on 13th June from London’s Gielgud Theatre, repeated due to the high demand. 

 

The productions take the cinema audience into the theatre, as the  audience arrives. There is usually an introductory…

Well that was a whirlwind of a week.

 

I travelled up to Anglesey on Train on Friday morning, 5.05am, with crust in my eyes, to get involved in the WalesLab DIY festival that was taking place on the Saturday and Sunday, hoping that the experience of a free spirited creative experience with creative people would set me up ready to direct my first assembly, rehearsals starting on Monday.

 

With the issue (Energy) already being selected Monday was the first day the…

Rekindled Love Affair

When NTW came to Anglesey I had no idea that I would be allured back into the performance world and inspired to be creative again. It's been over 3 years since I have fully engaged in the performance world, having previously been a full time Live Artist for 7 years after graduating in Contemporary Theatre Practice.

 

Hugh Hughes story shop offered me an open door to a misplaced home. A home that welcomed strangers in, to leave as friends. Since moving to Anglesey I have…

Pollinate 2013 Audio Diary

For me the WalesLab Pollinate summer camp was a wonderful success. Its been a few days since I arrived home from summer camp and since then I feel quite revitalised. In those two weeks I met some really amazing people and had an absolutely wonderful time working with them all in different ways. As I was the only sound based artist there I felt I had a place and a role, and the role was utilised well.

I set myself a goal to write a whole album about the experience on a day to day basis…

The Hours Bookshop

Praxis Makes Perfect will soon be appearing again in its festival incarnations at Latitude and Number 6 Festivals, and it's wonderful to be reminded of that bank holiday weekend in May when a corner of Carfdiff became a branch of a worldwide revolutionary movement and declared that 'Reading is Resistance'.  A number of people have been in touch since then to ask for the recipe for our infamous Champagne Socialist cocktail (it's a secret I'm afraid!) and also to ask about the marvellous folk…

On our way to World Stage Design Festival

Hello NTW friends,
