RED

Likely Story in partnership with Wales Millenium Centre have recently been awarded Arts Council Wales funding to support a 3 week Research and Development period on a new telling of ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ for a family audience. 

“Go out in the woods, go out. If you don't go out in the woods nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin.” - Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype.

In the wake of the #metoo campaign and the coming changes to the sex education curriculum in Wales, this show will explore themes of sex, consent, identity and power.

Here are a few questions we are exploring in this R&D period. If they excite you keep reading to find out the practical side of things!

  • How do pupils, teachers and parents currently communicate about sex, consent, self respect?
  • What is the modern moral of little red, how does the story relate to today’s conversations about sex, consent, self-respect and power?
  • What do 5 year olds think Little Red Riding Hood is about?
  • In an Inner City/Urban Jungle where are the ‘safe’ paths and where are the places we shouldn’t stray?
  • How do we dramatically show the forest as a place of awakening and creativity?
  • What physical language can we develop to communicate the themes with a young audience?
  • How does the archetype of woman and wolf fit in to our telling of RED?
  • What other myths and legends talk of women, wolves and wildness?
  • Can we use verbatim stories from kids to help tell the story?

RED

Mae Likely Story mewn partneriaeth â Chanolfan Mileniwm Cymru wedi cael cyllid gan Gyngor Celfyddydau Cymru’n ddiweddar i dalu am 3 wythnos o waith Ymchwil a Datblygu er mwyn creu fersiwn newydd o stori'r 'Hugan Fach Goch’ i deuluoedd. 

 “Ewch i’r goedig, ewch yno. Os na fyddwch chi’n mynd i’r goedwig, wnaiff dim byd fyth ddigwydd a fydd eich bywyd fyth yn dechrau.” - Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype.

Yn sgil ymgyrch #metoo a’r newidiadau a gaiff eu gwneud i’r cwricwlwm addysg rhyw yng Nghymru, bydd y sioe hon yn edrych ar themâu rhyw, cydsynio, hunaniaeth a grym.

Dyma ambell gwestiwn y byddwn yn eu gofyn yn ystod y cyfnod Ymchwil a Datblygu. Os yw’r rhain yn eich cyffroi, parhewch i ddarllen i ganfod mwy am y trefniadau ymarferol!

  • Sut y mae disgyblion, athrawon a rhieni yn cyfathrebu ar hyn o bryd am ryw, cydsynio a hunan-barch?
  • Beth yw neges foesol gyfoes yr Hugan Fach Goch, a sut y mae’r stori’n berthnasol i sgyrsiau heddiw am ryw, cydsynio, hunan-barch a grym?
  • Beth yw barn plant 5 oed am yr Hugan Fach Goch?
  • Mewn Jyngl Dinesig/Trefol, ble mae’r llwybrau ‘diogel’ a ble mae’r mannau na ddylem grwydro iddynt?
  • Sut y gallwn gyfleu’r goedwig mewn ffordd ddramatig a'i chyfleu fel lle sy’n deffro pobl ac yn ysgogi creadigrwydd?
  • Pa iaith gorfforol y gallwn ei datblygu i gyfathrebu’r themâu hyn i gynulleidfa ifanc?
  • Sut y mae’r archdeip o fenyw a blaidd yn cyd-fynd â’n dehongliad o RED?
  • Pa chwedlau eraill sy’n trafod menywod, bleiddiaid a’r gwyllt?
  • A allwn ni ddefnyddio straeon llafar gan y plant i’n helpu i adrodd yr hanes?

 

A yw'r rhestr ddarllen hon at eich dant chi?
