Karen: Invisible Threads are the Strongest Ties

In the design of systems it is often what we cannot see that is the most valuable. In our emotional design as people it is the trillions of molecules that inform our feelings about who we connect to and why. In the design of our workplaces and social gatherings it is the air of culture that floats around us forged through our…

Karen is Now Ready to Meet You! But Am I Ready?

What does opening night feel like for you? I'm sitting here in my home in Chicago. It is 9:18PM CDT and Karen has been available for download since this morning. I'm sitting here wondering if what I am feeling is normal or odd or stupendioulsy lovely. I am most certainly thinking I need a glass of wine. 

It has been three years to…

Call for Playwrights in Wales --- Help me turn Hettie's Life Story into a Story also of Our Time

There are a lot of women in Wales who inspire me. One in particular I wrote about for international women's day last year. Here name is  Hester (‘Hettie’) Millicent Mackenzie (nee hughes) and she was the first female professor appointed in the UK. The year was 1904, and she was appointed as a Professor of Education at Cardiff University. 

For International Women's Day in 2013, I was approached by…

Love! A Harsh But True Reality!

Does Love Really Steal Us from Loneliness?

Love is
growth! Growing up, together, apart, growing feelings, memories, sadness, happiness, growing old ...

This was the emotive essence that stayed with me after NTW's latest production (NTW07). A testament to both…

War is a Tragedy and Sennybridge a Star!

This week I was fortunate to make my way up to the Brecon Beacons and see NTW's latest production ... The Persians (#NTW06). So what did I make of the experience?

Let me first provide some context. Did I know much about the story and it's history - a little bit, but not really. I knew it was a Greek tragedy and a Greek Tragedy is usually about love or war or both. Did I know it's significance as the… Continue

Childs Play with NTW on The Beach in Prestatyn

When was the last time you went to the beach? The last time you played a game? Acted like a child? ... escaped the chaos of everyday life, the mess and disorganisation that is the reality of our worlds and had good old childish fun? With a narrative that makes you feel you are part of something much deeper and bigger then yourself ... a focus on 'we' not 'I' ... The Beach hits home!

For me I did this last night, played games on a beach in Prestatyn, and lost myself in the production.… Continue

Attracting Youth Audiences

This month myself and three students at Cardiff University are working on a project with NTW on Marketing Theatre. One of the key areas we are looking at is reaching and attracting youth audiences.

Do audiences have a place in the NTW Community?

Myself and three students are working on a marketing project with NTW and a key area we are looking at is the role of theatre audiences in the NTW Community.

From being part of the NTW Community, we've noticed that the community is mainly made up of professionals working in the creative arts and theatre industry in and around Wales. This is great as an industry network, wherein you can connect with colleagues and like minded souls on theatre productions and share skills, experiences… Continue

People are more likely to watch a play if they know somebody in it!

How do you market a new theatre company on a small budget? How do you raise awareness and increase attendance at the opening performance? These are challenges a new theatre company in Australia faced. An independent theatre company called: Spirithouse Theatre Company!

When faced with these challenges they discovered one core insight: People are more likely to watch a play if they know somebody in it!

The concept is really insightful and fresh! It is not about… 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
