THE INSATIABLE, INFLATABLE CANDYLION

“A long time ago, In the Kingdom of Candy, a lion once roamed the streets...
Howled on the hour, whined on the minute, roared every second day of the year.”

 

The Emerging Director position is a brilliant opportunity for new directors to spend some time working side by side with more experienced directors. Last year Siwan Llynor supported Louise Ann Wilson on The Gathering/Yr Helfa (have a look at her blog posts here to find out what she was getting up to).

 

The Emerging Director is a full-time role and a key component of the creative team. It requires attendance at all rehearsals, the production week and all performances. There may well be opportunities to be involved in production meetings prior to the official start date of the project.

The next opportunity for an Emerging Director will be on The Insatiable Inlfatable Candylion. An immersive, festive treat from the creative minds behind the genre-bending Praxis Makes Perfect: Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys, writer Tim Price and director Wils Wilson team up to create a show like no other - a theatre gig for audiences of all ages, inspired by the seminal album Candylion.

Featuring inflatable fat cats, a dalmation on drums, pink candyfloss, blue audience members, a penniless penguin, and all led by Gruff Rhys himself.

 

Venue: Swalec Stadium, Cardiff CF11 9XR

Key dates:

Rehearsals commence: 16th November

Tech week commences: 7th December

Preview: 16th December

Press night: 17th December

Final performance: 2nd January
