My Birthday trip to Merthyr to see Mother!

So as you are all probably not aware I got another year older over the weekend. Why should you care about that? No reason at all I'm just milking it a bit. (I'm still accepting birthday presents if you're interested.)

To kick off this years celebrations I finished work, got changed and jumped on a train to Merthyr to see Mother Courage. When I got on the train was packed, standing room only and if I'm honest this filled me with a sense of dread anticipating being squashed like…

Mr Greg Wohead is doing a show called the Ted Bundy project in Chapter Arts centre 29th - 30th May.

You'll Be A Man - Wales Lab Day 4

Hi so I thought I'd give you all a little up date on the project.

Let me start with saying how chuffed I am with what we have been working on and with how much fun we have been having in the studio space in the Sherman. Listening to great tunes and throwing a rugby ball back and forth and having lots of laughs. I have definitely felt like a big kid. Fortunately feeling like a big kid is really helping us explore the question of what makes a man.

It has been a…

Coney workshop - Ideastap

Sooo on July 31st I went down to London town for a workshop with Coney.

I applied through Ideas-tap and was one of the chosen few who were selected to attend the workshop. It was a great afternoon where Tassos Stevens talked about the immersive experiences that Coney make as well as running a few exercises with us as a group that were great fun. Coney make work that some people describe as games others as immersive theatre but either way they offer agency to the…

3 Years of Scratching!

It has been 3 years.

Ye I know it took me by surprise but it really has been 3 YEARS!

We have been Scratching That Itch for 3 Years, I'm not certain but I think that makes us the longest running Scratch night in Wales.

Well done us.

What is also truly amazing is the constant flow of new faces. Even after 3 years we have people sharing work at Scratch for the first time and the quality never fails to amaze me.

Escape Earth - Work In Progress : Exploring Spoken Word and Theatre

I thought you might all be bored of looking at my face so I figured I would type a blog.

Last week I was lucky enough to get a hold of the keys to the NTW Warehouse to start work on a project called Escape Earth. It  began after going to a few spoken word nights around Wales and discovering some very interesting very talented people. I thought it would be a good idea to get these people in a room together and talk about working on a project. So after weeks of trying to get…

So the past weekend I headed to North Wales to lead a workshop in Criccith. Now any one who has tried to get to North Wales from Swansea will know how crazy your route is by rail but none the left after heading off Friday morning I was in Bangor Friday evening waiting for my National Express coach to take me on the last leg of the journey.…
