Another first for National Theatre Wales?
We've been working with the Butetown community in Cardiff for over a year now as part of The Soul Exchange show in January 2011. As well as seeking out local talent to use in the production, through TEAM we've looked at unique marketing ideas and how to get the message of National Theatre Wales out to those who may not normally think about going to the theatre. As a result we've sponsored the local footbal team - AFC Butetown. I'll be updating you on their results, so watch this space.
It doesn't end here, one of the most important aspects of TEAM for me is that we continue to work with a community once the show is over. I'm sure that there are a lot more ideas to come out of Butetown.
If anyone still wants to get involved with The Soul Exchange we are currently looking for volunteer performers. You must be 16+ and be available for rehearsals on weekends and evenings from January 8th - 26th. The performances are on 27th & 28th January. Contact me or Carys Shannon for more information.
