Do you love theatre?
Do you find it frustrating?
Do you feel audiences don't get a voice?
Do you feel like an outsider in your own profession?
Have you just started out and need support?
Been in the profession for years and feel jaded?
Is Wales always left out of the discussions?
Do you usually dread discussions and meetings?
Are you looking to change things?
In 2012 for the first time ever, you have the opportunity to take part in a unique nationwide conversation.
An invitation from Chris Ricketts, Director, Sherman Cymru
Seven months on from our reopening it seems really fitting to turn our building over to D&D and to the debate and discussion it embodies. We need a theatre ecology that celebrates the things it does well and has the confidence to reinvent itself for the future. Tides turn, fresh and urgent voices emerge, new models develop for how to get people involved and our audiences continue to crave memorable, life-affirming experiences.
As funding strategies are set to change and develop around us over the coming months, it’s time for a hearts on sleeves and a heads on shoulders weekend of good company, honest reflection and great ideas. Come and join us.
An Invitation from John McGrath and Lucy Davies, National Theatre Wales
Theatre would get nowhere without the passion and questioning that D&D embodies in its name – and Welsh theatre has a proud range of opinions and beliefs about the what, how and where next of our artform, our profession, our obsession. D&D offers us an opportunity to put all of our hopes and gripes to work in a productive, collaborative forum – to imagine the future, and then make it happen.
D&D is a great opportunity for the experienced artist to sit alongside the newest talent, the experimentalist to mingle with the classicist, the individual to rub up with the organisation, audience with maker, and all of us to discover new possibilities.
In July D&D came to Bangor, and you can read the reports from that event here: http://www.devotedanddisgruntled.com/events/dd-roadshow-bangor/reports/. We look forward to seeing as many Welsh theatre lovers as possible at this second Welsh D&D event in Cardiff held in partnership with Sherman Cymru.
Welsh translation will be achieved amongst ourselves - we welcome the support of bi-lingual participants in buddying up and translating written reports.
