Profile Information

What I do:
Hassan Ahmed Farah (Panero) is a Poet & Script Writer for De Gabay produced by National Theatre Wales in Butetown, Cardiff
A little more about me:
Hassan Ahmed Farah (Panero) is a poet in the field of the unheard, he has been a traveller to the theatre since participatory art gave way to communicate, Hassan is a Somali born & raised in Denmark, as he grew up amongst his parents & nine Brothers & Sisters ethics & family love fuelled him with ambition, he came to live in Wales at the age of 15.
Change then became a huge subject in his writing and language, he at once used his creativity to influence himself to reflect on the importance that laid in the unheard voices, through poetry he tapped into the frequency of simplicity generating art, on a international level like workshops in Somalia, poetry has made a intense impact on community elders and the young that usually are misunderstood, his ambition is for De Gabay to enter into the book of History and create a unheard Chapter.
The Guardian wrote “150 of the country's leading participatory arts thinkers, practitioners and leaders united at the Institute of Contemporary Arts for the national summit Because We're Worth It! – and Hassan Panero, a Somali poet working with NTW, who captivated the audience with his lyrical prose and his own story of surprise that the organisation weren't "too posh to talk to him." “
Projects I’m working on:
im currently working on De Gabay project which is the first project being produced by National Theatre Wales Ntw23

Intense information

Man on a beach far away

Outcast to the box most are trapped   within, focused like a scientist would be to prove his theory right, against the wind of all odds. 

He said "they comming for us"

"Who are they", we ask?

Genuine reflex instantly open arms welcome gesture. 

That was then this is now.  Polluted by mass toxic waste , his fully educated without a deegre. Books sent from oversea. They kill the livestock, land and sea. Depend on me. United Nations,… Continue
