Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay

Sunday, 2 Jun - 11:00 - 13:00



We often make street games and are always looking for Actors with the particular skills required to be a performer within our work. We are offering this free workshop as a chance to meet new performers interested in the style of work yello brick makes. 

It also serves as an opportunity for performers to gain a greater understanding and develop skills for performing in immersive worlds, street games and interactive experiences. 

This is not an audition but a chance for us to get to know you and you us. This two hour workshop will cover a range of different elements including:

- character building

- world building

- game facilitation 

- audience interaction and in-world improvisation

We hope participants will leave the workshop with a greater understanding of the this style of work, the role of the actor within it and the skills to develop further for working in this way.

This opportunity is for professional actors and those currently in training. 

Yello brick create meaningful experiences that place audiences at the centre of the story.

Our work is bold, challenging, curious and playfully disruptive.

The second SYNERGIZE meeting will be on Monday 29th April 5-7pm in Tescos Community Room. If you didn't come to the last one and would like to join us this time, please email

SYNERGIZE is the habit of creative cooperation. It is teamwork, open-mindedness, and the adventure of finding new solutions to old problems. But it doesn't just happen on its own. It's a process, and through that process, people bring all their personal experience and expertise to the table.

Whether you are a performer, writer, stage manager, producer or director, you are welcome to join us.

Audition applications are now open for our latest production: Emily Garside’sDon't Send Flowers.

“Grace and Louis have one thing in common: the thing they don’t want to talk about, so they base their relationship on not talking.

John and Grace are trying to talk about things that matter, not things that don’t.

And everyone is eating cake. But there’s only so long you can avoid the thing that brought you together…”


Grace - primary school teacher, playing age 20-30

John - Art academic, playing age 30-40

Lewis - Doctor, playing age 20-30

Spaces are still available for the next silent writing retreat.

Zenpens is an exciting new writer’s retreat based in Cardiff City Centre. Adapted from the Writer’s Army workshops lead by the New York playwright Anne Washburn, Zenpens allows writers to concentrate solely on their work in meditative silence.

Zenpens is a one-day silent writers retreat. No phones. No social media. No distractions.

Meeting at 9:45 am for a short debrief and writing exercises, we start working in earnest at 10 am until 1 pm. An hour lunch. Then more silent writing from 2 pm until 6 pm.

The most important rule is that everyone starts and leaves at the same time. It’s a quiet space, but most importantly it’s a space where everyone is working steadily together.

We also ask that people not work during lunch. Periods of not working and switching off completely are vital for overall productivity.

What’s on offer?

A supportive space to begin something new or rehash something old.

New networking possibilities.

Writing exercises to boost creativity.

Free tea and coffee facilities.

How much?

Money collected at the retreat is used to pay for the space and its upkeep. If you can, please pay the suggested donation of £8 or £5 concession.

This sounds right for me, when’s the next one?

Zenpens will be taking place on the 20th April at the John Dennithorne Room, Quaker Meeting House, 43 Charles Street, Cardiff CF10 2GB.

How can I get in touch?  

Spaces are limited, so please email your interest to Paul Stoyle at or visit for more information.

Best wishes,


“All know the way, few actually walk it”

-    Zen proverb

Hi everyone, 

We're re-casting Rachel Trezise's one-woman show, Cotton Fingers. We're taking it to Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland before it comes home for a Cardiff run this year. Breakdown here. This is live on Spotlight too.
