Cerbyd Interview part 1

1) What was your inspiration for Cerbyd and why do you think the Welsh art scene would benefit from it?

Tom Goddard: The inspiration for Cerbyd came firstly from our involvement in Garej Art space between June 2007 – August 2008. After exhibiting 120 artists in rolling three week shows over a fifteen month programme, I became most interested in the dialogues created between artist and viewer, particularly from works in progress and their ongoing creative processes. They can suggest… Continue

Caroline Bunce , a sublime actress in the play, suggested in her wisdom that I, Julie, merely the director, you understand, create a blog..and that i was responsible for creating such a blog because i was the director... and therefore i havent got much else to here I am.

Weve been rehearsing for about 4 days now and… Continue

You can't possible have all the world's plays at your fingertips - or can you.

I used to be a huge collector of books and plays and reference tomes and anything printed by Penguin circa 1960 etc. The trouble is, one moves around so much (peculiarly been in the same house for 4 years now, a bit of record since leaving home) and it is such a chore keeping boxes and boxes (and I do mean dozens) and moving them or finding a home for them.

But, wouldn't it be magical if the play you wanted to read was just a couple of clicks and a postage stamp or two… Continue

I am sitting in a white room. There's no padding on the wall (though maybe there should be!) just lots and lots of post it notes! Brainstorming for The Beach has begun.

And so far so good.

Ideas have been flowing, marker pens have been marking, post it's have been stuck and re-stuck and we now have 4 solid themes ready to be honed and discarded and looked at… Continue

Calm down, we are simply looking for groups or societies or organisations from across Wales to offer an activity to our travelling band of artists to take part in. For example on one of the days, a group of dancers from Mid-Wales have invited us to come to a practice session where they will dance for us then give us a beginner’s course in a 19th century form of dance. This is not my usual territory but that’s kind of the point.

Before all that takes place the selected artists will be… Continue
