Broke new ground in my career today - my first performance as a non-human! Thankfully, the baboons in David Weiner's "Feeding Time at the Human House" are quite heavily anthropomorphized, so I didn't have to paint my bum red or climb on anything...!
Jayne Stillman and I performed two of Weiner's shorts for Fluellen Theatre Company as part of the ongoing…Continue

In the light of the news today and the all too familiar fear filled images we are given of masses of migrants flooding in at the gates of Europe, I feel the need to talk about the workshops I've been doing for NTW Team in Refugee and Asylum Seeker groups. But maybe I should let these images speak for themselves.…
On our travels we’ve often worked closely with schools and colleges, from Danielle’s gang in Tonypandemonium to the pre-show for Love Steals Us From Loneliness. They’ve also provided performers for a number of our Assemblies and TEAM projects, and helped our Communications team come up with new marketing ideas. Up until now, it’s generally been part of a wider project, but we now want the focus to be solely on education.
So we've decided to seek the help of…Continue

I’m looking for a Director to help me rehearse a one man show I’m performing at this year’s Cardiff Comedy Festival.
“Conrad Kordover is a man with strange habits; a loner, living by his own unconventional beliefs. When a murder is committed, it isn’t long before the Police come knocking.”
“What’s the Time, Mr Wolf?” by Vincent Cassar. A darkly comic one man play exploring a society where justice must be done, whatever the price. A piece that is…

We have an ambition. We want to take our bilingual production of Priodferch Utah/Utah Bride to Patagonia for the 150 year celebrations.
Many of themes of Utah about searching for that 'something else' tie in with the first Welsh people who landed ' with a dream and a hope of creating their new home'.
It will also help me as a practitioner to link up with artists in Argentina and…Continue

Here's a short report and images detailing what we got up to during (and in the lead up to) our day as Artists in Residence at National Theatre Wales HQ... including confirmation of the 1969 moon landing!
