It's been an interesting couple of days exploring the possibilities of the project with Ollie and Joanna. We started yesterday (in our lovely rehearsal space at Barry Memo) improvising and discussing characters and their stories. We then hopped on the no 95 to Ty Verlon industrial estate to meet Baz and Rhys who gave us a tour of their very own bus which is used to run arts projects with young people in Barry and Cadoxton. Then in the afternoon we met Marco and his dog Peroni who told us about the Gavin and Stacey bus tour. Lots of ideas have sprung from these chats.
Today we worked with the poetic text I've been gathering and used this to explore the characters and their relationships. We've also been mapping the route for our bus tour and thinking about the significance of the places to the characters. Tomorrow we're joined by Sean Tuan John and will be getting physical on the bus!
