Barry bus developments

Yesterday was our last Wales Lab day and Joanna, Ollie and I were joined by Alan Harris. It was really useful to have a fresh pair of eyes view the material created so far and chat about ways forward. Big thanks to Wales Lab and all the collaborators who have been involved in developing the work. It's been a treat to explore how this project might work and take time to figure out the best way to turn an inital idea into exciting theatre. The plan now is to work with Alan on developing the…

The Barry Bus Project

It's been an interesting couple of days exploring the possibilities of the project with Ollie and Joanna. We started yesterday (in our lovely rehearsal space at Barry Memo) improvising and discussing characters and their stories. We then hopped on the no 95 to Ty Verlon industrial estate to meet Baz and Rhys who gave us a tour of their very own bus which is used to run arts projects with young people in Barry and Cadoxton. Then in the afternoon we met Marco and his dog Peroni who told us…

Wales Lab - The Barry Bus Project

Thanks to Wales Lab I'm getting the chance to explore ideas for a show I want to make on board a barry bus. Over the weekend me and poet, grahame davies have been circling Barry on the no 95, taking in the sights and sounds from Dow Corning to Jackson's Bay, chatting to fellow passengers and scribbling.

Tomorrow, and for the next few days, I'll be on the buses with actors Joanna Griffiths and Ollie Wood exploring characters and improvising with poetic fragments collected by Grahame.…

The Container

Chuffed to see we got a 4 star review in The Guardian and lovely comments from Karen Price at the Western Mail but best post show feedback so far is from a colleague at the Welsh Refugee Council who talked about being stuck in a container once for 47 hours on his third attempt trying to get in to the UK, 'you put my experience on stage, you got it right.'

what does a welsh person sound like?

when Catherine told me this was the question for the Prestatyn Assembly i had a little smile then a big gulp, followed quickly by a furrowed brow - the politics of language, accent & identity all wrapped up in one short sentence. Having had many a chat/heated debate on this subject in the past I wanted an atmosphere where people could quickly get engaged in the nit and grit of the question but also just laugh. I think we got there thanks to everyone who came and everyone's contribution but… Continue
