MERCURY THEATRE WALES

Our next SYNERGIZE meeting will be on Monday 24th June 5pm - 7pm in Tesco's Community Room, Western Avenue, Cardiff.
This month's session will be led by actor & director Lynn Hunter and open to all actors, directors, writers and producers.
If you'd like to join us please email info@mercurytheatrewales.co.uk for more details.

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.

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…”

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 writing 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 zenpenssilentretreat@gmail.com or visit https://zenpens-silentwritersretreats.yolasite.com/ for more information.

Best wishes,

Zenpens.

Hi team,

I'll be directing a couple of things at Boom Town in August including a large scale circus piece and the walkabout and balcony work with the Dank Parish in Mayfair. I'm going to be looking to meet some people who might want to come along and play soon, so if you're interested in popping into a rehearsal room with me and coming along to the festival  feel free to drop me a line on kristoffer.huball@gmail.com so I can add you to my list of people interested in getting involved in some walkabout work.

Do you dutifully start typing only to be tempted to dive into Instagram, or start cleaning the kitchen, or Skype an old friend…?

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.

Togetherness is a spur . The presence of other writers can allow you to work longer and more productively than you normally would and helps to move you through periods of inattention and malaise.

Cool, so how does it work?
