August 012 are Back - Join Us! Free Cyrano Research and Development Open Rehearsals!

August 012 are back . . .

Over the next 11 days we will be carrying out our second round of research and development for Cyrano.

Over the past 6 months, we have revisited Edmond Rostand classical text with writer Matt Hartley and set it in the Welsh Valleys within the rugby world of the 90’s. This has generated new spatial and sonic ideas that we want to try out.
