Things I will miss

My indulgent sentimental gushing has begun...

All of the incredible memories and friends and images from 4 years of setting up this company, and making 22 shows, and building this gorgeous family of 4,000 of you... 

Thinking about what I will miss... 

the A470 

having a transformative theatre moment in the lashing rain, because of the lashing rain

the big tea pot, gathering around it

the fast-forward non stop hurtle through it all

Ring your bells on Friday morning

This is one of the highlights of the 2012 Fest for me - at 8.12am on Friday everyone in the united nations of Britain (we should be called that, shouldn't we, much better than being a United Kingdom) is invited to ring a bell, any bell, for 3 minutes. It's the v simple gorgeous idea of Martin Creed and you can share your images and stories on his site:

I shall be ringing my bike bell.

Photos from Peace Camp look…

Do you find it frustrating?

Do you feel audiences don't get a voice?

Do you consider that theatre in Wales has an identity of its own?

Do you feel that there is far too much talking and not enough doing?

Is the time ripe for us in Wales to host a discussion about the future of theatre in our country? 

We are thrilled to be joining forces with Improbable and two great friends in Wales - Pontio and Sherman Cymru - to host…
