Assembly 2010/11

With a team of local musicians, hairdressers, performers, bakers, artists, shop assistants, bus drivers, etc... We'll create an evening of performances & discussions about what really matters in this particular place at this particular time.

Location: Wales
Members: 89
Latest Activity: Dec 3, 2014

Do you want to take part in the ASSEMBLY programme?

This group is for anyone who is interested in getting involved in the parallel programme running alongside the shows.
The Assembly is a gathering of local artists and audiences in a particular space and under a theme dear to them. Its format will juxtapose questions, dialogue, theatre and performance and propose different ways of creating, exchanging and hopefully, thinking.
If you are an artist, a theatre goer or just curious, please check this group regularly.

Nice slideshow Mathilde. Some really intimate and revealing human images in there. You've managed to do that very difficult thing as a photographer - to become invisible and appear to be unnoticed by your subjects. Lots of strong angles that don't feel like you were trying to be too tricksy or clever. Also thing the black and white adds a gravity to the process. (Do you do weddings?)

For The Valleys Assembly, the question was: "when does the future start?" This was taken from a line in the show, A Good Night Out in the Valleys, spoken by teenager Tracy. Here are the responses we got when we asked the question in and around Blaengarw, where we hosted the Assembly in Blaengarw Workmen's Hall:

When Does the Future Start?

From this question rose another questions: "When did the past end?"

In relation to the character Tracy, we asked in Family Fortunes style, "why do young people leave the Valleys?"

So we also asked, why do young people stay in the Valleys?

This Blog post shows you what happened at our Arcades Assembly at the beginning of this year.

This Blog gives you an idea of what happened when we did our very first test for the Respond programme. It is an excerpt from a longer evening of work. Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to the evening, those of you who were able to make it, Ellie for posting it and Gavin for making this video. x
