Following my WalesLab week Ella (my 11 year old daughter) and I will be presenting a dance work in progress at Sherman Cymru. The work is part of a family program within Wales Dance Platform. Fathers and daughters are…
Hello Jem, I really am so happy that you thought of me... but I'm now living far away in London. If it wasn't for the distance, I'd be there. I came along to Scheherazade last year for Creative Cardiff and was mightily impressed. Anyway, have you tried asking Kirsty Allen? She's a great writer -- and she certainly knows a thing or two about dance. I hope the rest of the tour is spectacular and that someone comes along to tell that to the world. And if you're ever performing in London please get in touch.
Thanks for the invitation. Good luck with the company. I have only been to the Muni once and really enjoyed the experience. Next week there is a new play "Bruised" - new drama is an infrequent event & young writers need supporting. So I have had that arranged a long time back.
I'm not the best person on dance. I was asked by National Dance's publicist to write about their tour a couple of years ago. It was okay but the next year what I wrote lacked any real depth. Amelia Forsbrook is a much writer on dance than me so I suggest you link up with her.
Make yourself at home and have a look around, there are loads of ways to get the best out of the community. Joining a Group is a good way to connect and network with people who have similar interests to you. You might enjoy the Creatives group (looked after by Matt Ball, one of our Creative Associates) or the Actorsgroup (looked after by Michael Salmon, our Company Assistant).
You might also want to create a Group for RunRagged to share your current work and projects or write a Blog Post about what you're up to so other community members can find out about your work.
As always, the best thing to do is dive in and have a look around, but if you have any questions give me a shout!
