Since we last met back in November, I've been involved in a research project on performance responding or relating to flooding, which involves a compilation of performance case-studies as well as oral history interviews with people affected by extreme weather.
I'm keen to reference your the play that you wrote on the flooding of the Elan valley as a case study in the write up and wondered whether you have any documentation of the show that you would be willing to share?
In other news, I've been involved in a performance project with women's stories from the CAT oral history archive, and a community playback theatre group, as well as a bit of dance with Mags Ames from Aber uni. All good fun!
Awwww wow, that's amazing. Hope it's all going well out there! Basically we are looking for people who have unusual vocal talents or use the voice for work such as impersonators, auctioneers, singers, poets, sheep dog callers, yodellers, etc . . . So if you know of any groups or individuals I should contact our you could pass my details on to whom you think would be interested that would be great! Including yourself ;) S x
Parklife was the extension of quite a rollercoster summer for me, so the crash landing back to the real world is rather depressing! Back to bills and job hunting! I came across your notes for the Pontardawe show. It's interesting to see the journey Parklife took. Here's to it's next incarnation!
That's great news Peter,
I will arrive on the 9th & am hoping that I haven't missed too much by then.
"Parklife" has a great spirit & I've really enjoyed working on it's journey, so far.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Hi Peter - I live in Cardiff although I was for a year in Brecon. I am new to living and working in Wales although I have known Wales most of my life. I grew up in B'ham so coming across the border was a regular trip mainly for school. Let me know if Wednesday evening any good.
Hi Peter - I am at an early stage of researching a show which will tell a culturally diverse story through Indian food. I want to speak to people who cook, serve and eat it. The working title is Masala Cymru. It would be good to hear about End of the Line and your visit to India and the affects of the Partition of British India 1947. A Lifetime on Tiptoes by Mazhar Tirmazi is about the affects of of Partition on the ordinary millions of people.
Hi Peter - find a good time for Guy and yourself. I will be travelling back from Newtown next Wednesday eve if that works for you both. Mazhar Tirmazi the writer of A Lifetime on Tiptoes has come back from Lahore and will be coming to visit from London. We should arrange to meet together. Look forward to meal and meeting. Dominic
Good to hear from you. Yes, ACW news was alarming, to say the least. The 'new portfolio' doesn't look very inspiring either - we'll just have to wait and see how it all develops.
Best of luck with your projects...!
It was great to meet you today. A very inspiring afternoon but, I have to say it left me feeling a little sad by the end of it.
Hope you enjoyed "Gulliver" tonight and let me know if I can help with Wyeside stuff.
Thank you for the masks! Haha, that was a bit of a surprise on here. Didn't realise you could do that kind of thing.
But yes, thank you. And thank you for all your help. Looking forward the Sherman group that starts on Wednesday. A cliche, but I really wouldn't be at this point if it wasn't for your help and guidance. I appreciate and am very grateful for it.
