Theatre Residency Tender Invitation - Wyeside Arts Centre

Calling the National Theatre Wales Community!

Wyeside Arts Centre is seeking emergent, inspirational theatre-makers to work with Builth Wells High School exploring the legend of Twm Siôn Catti and the life of TJ Llewelyn Prichard, the local author who brought his tale to Victorian audiences in the first Welsh novel published. 

The Adventures and Vagaries of Twm Sion Catti found a passionate readership in Wales, and the Anglo-Welsh identity of both the work and its author touch on themes which remain central to Welsh identity today.

Supported by Arts Council Wales, Heritage Lottery Fund and the Garfield Weston Foundation, the project seeks to fuse the arts with an exploration of local heritage and national history, gaining a new understanding of the significance of this seminal work.

Working with Key Stage 3 students, the successful applicants will devise an original piece of youth theatre for production at Wyeside in April 2016, and tour the piece to two other local venues during the summer.

The project is vibrant, engaging leading national scholars and involving students across a wide range of subjects, with active commitment from the school. We are looking for theatre-makers who can build on this sense of excitement with their own passionate creativity. If that's you, we'd like to hear from you.

Application Deadline: 5pm Monday 3rd August
