This is the question (the only question, unless you count ‘What’s the point?’) posed by National Theatre Wales’ collaboration with Berlin-based ‘reality theatre pioneers’ Rimini Protokoll.

Since I moved to Wales 2 years ago, I went 5 times to Big Pit in Blaenafon.
At first I thought it was the going down the mine experience that attracted me so I drove to Dolaucothi gold mine. I managed to shoot a short video there, echoing some of the visual experiences of Big Pit but it wasn't the same. I missed them. The ex miners, their gestures, their care, their peaceful and dense energy and also that particular darkness and the irregularity of the black…Continue

Writing from the back of the auditorium at the Torch, where director Mladen Materic and the cast of Mundo Paralelo are working through some key moments of the show before starting cue-to-cue tech tomorrow. I drove down from Aberystwyth this morning (for those of you who know about my lack of driving skills, I should mention that I managed not to tip off the road into the sea at any point, and indeed spent a while stuck behind a caravan cursing just like a proper motorist...) I head back to…Continue
