STORM 3 thoughts and feelings...

So I’m not much of a writer but here are my thoughts ...

Ceriann Williams

Summary of discussion

Ceriann attended the Edinburgh Fringe last year as part of the Total Theatre network and saw a lot of work which was labelled ‘unconventional’ in style. Much of this work was multiplatform and had a digital element and has raised a question about why we see little of these advancements in Wales:

Why do…

Lisa

Summary of discussion

TEAM Model. It works. It’s sick.

Successful in engaging people who don’t ordinarily connect with theatre in its traditional model, people who don’t necessarily think that theatre is for them.

Make it a bigger part of what NTW does.

I’d like NTW to better acknowledge other languages that exist in Wales, beyond…

Mae'n llwyddo wrth ennyn diddordeb pobl nad ydynt fel arfer yn cysylltu â'r theatr ar ei ffurf draddodiadol, pobl nad ydynt o reidrwydd yn tybio bod y theatr ar eu cyfer nhw.

NTW STORM 3. DAY 1

Yesterday was the first day of our thoughtful, wordy, adventure in making some responsive reflective performance that will knowingly coincide with Britain's expected departure from Europe.

Working on this project as one of 8 performers, who were all selected for their various skills, voices, approaches and backgrounds in performance, I'm gunna speak only as 1 of that 8.

(1) - 8.

As far as first days go I think each of us entered the room with a certain amount of anxiety…
