Learning to Blog at the National Theatre Wales

What's exciting about the National Theatre's approach is their openness to the community around them. This morning we're learning about blogging - getting thoughts up onto the web, responding and debating each other's ideas.

It's great to be present at the birth of something new, and it'll fascinating to see how the conversation evolves over time here. With so many passionate and creative people involved in the Theatre scene in Wales and beyond, I'm sure there will be some awesome… Continue

The theatre and Me!

How do I define being a fan of the theatre?

Emersion: You know I love the theatre! I love the feeling of being emersed in someone's creative genius. Seeing the journey unfold of someone's creative idea and not knowing what is going to happen next! This is why I am a huge fan of the theatre!

Escape. This is a another however I work in an environment that is critical, analytical and mainstream business. So to escape to the theatre, to be part of something creative is why I… Continue

Here We Are

We are sitting in a room together in Castle Arcade Cardiff, the rain is beating down on the glass roof above us. Carl says - just write something, your first blog post is going to be embarrassing, but then soon you'll be onto your second and you'll find you have something to say. So here it is! Last week we finally move into our 'shop' in Castle Arcade - a little store next to nail bar just along from the tattoo shop and the pizza store. National Theatre Wales is a theatre without a theatre -… Continue

First Post

I'm very impressed with the way the NTW's social network has censored my profile photo. Keep the bike and the slogan - lose the face.

It is 10am on Monday 18 May and National Theatre Wales are learning how to blog. We are sat around a table in our new office, listening to the rain and the clicks of each others' keyboards as we try typing our first tentative paragraphs. I am wondering who will read these and who will respond. I am also looking forward to putting my thoughts down on virtual paper, seeing others' responses and replying to them all!

More than 100 years ago

This photo was taken by a panoramic camera, 111 years ago. It was in my uncles attic in Bargoed South Wales for most of that time. When he died, his son found it there. I borrowed it and restored it, it took two years and hours of photoshop to remove all the dust and paint and rips. It was taken for the local paper, and marked a day when there was record coal production at Bargoed Colliery. When I look at the photo, I scan all the faces to see my ancestors and history and the toll that coal… Continue

The New 'Assembly' Creative Associate

Hello everyone.

My name is Abdul Shayek and I am the new Creative Associate for the 'Assembly strand' of National Theatre Wales.  Some of you may remember my last visit to Wales whilst on placement, thought I would blog my re-entry on to the Welsh Theatre Landscape.  For those who didn't or did catch my last blog 2 years back about hikes, trips to the seaside and recon mission in Brecon Beacons, I am back and this time it's for good.


So who have National Theatre Wales…
