Event Description

 
Tocynnau: £ 8 - £12 | Cyfyngiad oed: 15 +

Mae Happiness Repeats Itself yn astudiaeth theatraidd i mewn i’r arbrofion lobotomi a berfformiwyd ar filoedd o gleifion ledled y byd yn y 1950au.

Gan ddefnyddio astudiaethau achos go iawn, tystlythyrau a chofnodion meddygol, mae cast anhygoel o berfformwyr yn cyfuno ffilm, dawns a thestun i egluro effeithiau distrywiol y llawdriniaethau yma. Wedi’i greu gan un o gyfarwyddwyr annibynnol mwyaf llwyddiannus Cymru, Sean Tuan John, dyma siwrnai deimladwy a gweledol i mewn i eiliadau coll ac atgofion sydd ar chwâl - profiad unigryw ac ysgogol sy’n hoelio’r sylw.

Ariennir gan Gyngor Celfyddydau Cymru. Comisiynwyd ar y cyd gan Canolfan y Celfyddydau, Aberystwyth gyda chefnogaeth gan Gonsortiwm Dawns Creu Cymru.

Hyd y Perfformiad: Tua 70 munud

 

 

Tickets: £8 - £12 | Age restriction: 15 +


Happiness Repeats Itself is a theatrical investigation into the lobotomy experiments performed on thousands of patients around the world in the 1950s.

Using actual case studies, testimonials and medical records, an exceptional cast of performers fuse film, dance and text to illustrate the devastating effects these operations inflicted on a generation.

Haunting, unique and compelling, this is an emotional and visually arresting journey in to precious lost moments and obliterated memories from one of Wales' most successful independent directors, Sean Tuan John.
