Mid Wales creatives.

I often find myself feeling artistically isolated in mid Wales, with Cardiff generally being my point of call. I am interested in building networks with other mid Wales creatives and finding out who is out there. So it would be great to connect with anyone either living and working in mid Wales or with some kind of investment in the area. let us know who you are and what you do and then lets connect, see each others work and support one another. See More

What I do:
Actress
A little more about me:
I trained as an actress at RWCMD and work variously as an actor, theatre maker and workshop facilitator.

As a workshop leader and assistant director I have worked extensively with the Mid Powys Youth Theatre.

Recent performance credits include: a one woman children's show called 'Whose Shoes' by Mike Kenny, directed by Andrew Sterry; Helena in 'All's Well That End's Well' with Shakespeare Link; R&D with Omidaze Theatre on an all female Richard III working alongside volcano, Frantic Assembly and the RSC. I have worked with the acclaimed Pentabus Theatre several times, most recently producing work generated through their young writers program.

Over the last few years I have worked with Dutch theatre company PeerGroup and National Theatre Wales developing an artistic relationship with mid Wales communities.

Theatre making is taking an increasingly significant weight in my artistic priorities. I am particularly interested in taking inspiration from mid Wales life, communities and landscapes in the creation of work with and for mid Wales communities. I hope then to share this work, and the mid Wales experience on a broader platform.

Powys
Projects I’m working on:
I am co-directing a piece for the Wyeside Arts Centre working with young people from Builth Wells high school. The piece focuses on the life of a local, Victorian, writer Thomas Jeffery Llewellyn Prichard and his novel Twm Sion Catty, which came to be the first Anglo Welsh novel published.

Last summer I developed a scratch performance of a little known Radnorshire Folk tale. It was a one woman piece which merged theatre and story telling and was accompanied by a live violin score. The next stage of development is to work with the landscape and location of the story as a means of rooting and infusing the story with the landscape itself. I aim to enter a sited research and development phase in the next few months.

I am working closely with Wyeside Arts Centre in the development of a Research and Development bid. The aim of the project is to explore the changing identity of mid Wales and in and out migration. We will work with leading Welsh artists to explore these themes and, if all goes to plan, create a piece of site specific theatre at the Urdd Eisteddfod in 2017.

My experience of the PeerGroup residency

What a wonderful and challenging adventure I had in my home town of Rhayader with Peer Group and 9 inspiring artists from Wales and Holland.

The week has made me look at the place I live and its local people with a renewed focus and inspired questions that I had never considered before. It opened a dialogue with my community and allowed me to begin to make discoveries about what holds the community together, what separates it and how its structure has changed over the last 30 years.…

Hey Kama, I'm sorry it's taken me a while to get back to you! It was great to meet and hang out with you in November, and would be brilliant to meet up again sometime. Over the last month I've been part of a group working with the CAT oral history archive to create some performance; we're about to make a piece of performance about women's stories from CAT and from the wider community here, for Int-Women's day on March 8th. Let me know if you'd like to come! Hope to catch up soon anyway, Rosie.x

Hey Kama,
Sorry it's been so long for me to get back in touch. Busy as a lark! That doesn't make sense, I know. But you know what I mean. Yeah I'm still writing. Always writing. Trying to kinda hone myself into the one act format at the moment. What about yourself? How's the Living Willow doing?

Excellent idea Kama. I'll have think. It would be of particular benefit I'm sure to some of the emerging artists around such as yourself as a very fine actor and Brad Birch as a very fine new writer. I think the reading we did of Brad's play was a good example of what's possible when you get a few like minded people together with a bit of determination to make things happen. Don't know if you've noticed Darius Nash just joined the NTW site. Maybe hook him up as a friend and get his and Brad's thoughts.

Hi kama
Visited the Living Willow theatre last weekend. Loved the space.... and the whole atmosphere.. Lived just down the road for many years, in Rhayader... miss those hills everyday still. I too would love to make a piece of work with you.
