ACW Clore Fellow 2013/14

I feel like I have disappeared from Wales slightly and feel the need to reconnect to all things Welsh. I met the wonderful Lynn Hunter the other week and she teased me for my absence and silence.

And so I need to share a few things...

1)I am currently on the Clore Leadership programme as the Arts Council of Wales Fellow 2013/14 and it is quite simply the most extraordinary and life-changing professional experience I have ever had. I would whole heartedly recommend it.

Training in FORUM Theatre TOOLS FOR LIFE

"Theatre has nothing to do with buildings or other physical constructions. Theatre- or theatricality - is the capacity, this human property which allows man to observe himself in action, in activity. The self-knowledge thus acquired allows him to be the subject (the one who observes) of another subject (the one who acts). It allows him to imagine variations of his action, to study alternatives. Man can see…

Muddy Puddles

When you stand in a muddy puddle, you are a giant, a world destroyer, a builder. You leave an imprint that moulds and creates. But as you leave that imprint disappears. Slowly and by degrees.  

My hometown's muddy puddle is changing. Parts of it have disappeared completely: existing now only as memories. Slowly, their imprint disappears. 

There is only my mum left to bind me to my hometown now. There are so few people left who remember me. My imprint is…
