ImposterMouth Ponderings

IMPOSTERMOUTH PonderingsA few thoughts about ImposterMouth ahead of my short run at Le Pub.ImposterMouth is a spoken word show I have been waiting to make for what feels like ages now. Just sitting on it. Getting parts of it out at various moments for almost every opportunity that may present it's self. At the very first Express Yourself in 2017, at Jeremy Linnell's scratch night SCAB, and then taking Steph Kempson's invitation to perform a version of it at Sharp Teeth at The Wardrobe Theatre,…See More

Profile Information

What I do:
Co-Director of Tin Shed Theatre Co - Theatre Maker - Performer - Workshop Facilitator
A little more about me:
I’m a South Wales based Theatre Maker involved in the devising, writing and performance phases of theatre and live art; making work as an individual, a co-collaborator and as part of Tin Shed Theatre Co.

Over the past 10 years I have developed and performed work in the UK and internationally with; The Bristol Old Vic, National Theatre Wales, China Plate's Optimist Scheme, Battersea Arts Centre, Likely Story, Mr & Mrs Clark, We Made This, Theatr Iolo, San Diego Fringe Festival, Alma Alter: Bulgaria, and The Birmingham REP.

My work is often absurdist, and concerns it’s self with themes of anti-comedy, surreal approaches to everyday subjects, mental health, tomfoolery, satire, and autobiographical explorations.

My writing exists inside and outside of a theatre process; writing short stories, poetry, pieces of spoken word, and online content, as well as developing my own podcast DarkSpace, as well as being an occasional guest writer for Wales Arts Review.

As a Freelance Workshop Facilitator I specialise in working with children and young adults in Devising Drama, Political Response through Performance, and Creative/Experiential Learning.
Projects I’m working on:
My work currently exists in many places, sizes, shapes and forms and is both collaborative and solo.

IMPOSTERMOUTH - A new solo spoken word performance that is a surreal journey through a day in the life of a man who has some kind of depression. Autobiographical, explorative and wordy.

CARPET - With Frank Thomas, is a new Spoken Word performance platform that is looking to readjust peoples viewpoint on 'what' spoken word is, and where is can exist.

LAUNCH - With Tin Shed Theatre Co. we are currently R&D our second large scale outdoor performance project looking at instigating a fictional rocket launch in the town Blaenavon.

STORM.3 - A quick free write

STORM.3 is here.

After a few weeks of deep thinking, honest discussion and some often intense self reflection, the show has arrived.

My objectivity is skewed. As an artist, I entered this process with a certain amount of trepidation. I wasn't sure what this work was going to become, or what it would mean for the audiences that came to view it. Now, I have been on a journey with it; physically, mentally and personally. I have in some sense fallen in love with it.…

Yesterday was the first day of our thoughtful, wordy, adventure in making some responsive reflective performance that will knowingly coincide with Britain's expected departure from Europe.

Working on this project as one of 8 performers, who were all selected for their various skills, voices, approaches and backgrounds in performance, I'm gunna speak only as 1 of that 8.

(1) - 8.

As far as first days go I think each of us entered the room with a certain amount of anxiety…

Hey man, hows things? yeah, all good my end - just starting to get through the 500GB of footage from Wales Lab, cheers for doing loads of video diaries btw - they're really helping me to piece the whole thing back together... What are you working on at the moment?

At 15:29 on February 6, 2012, Glesni Price-Jones said…

thanks for a the speedy reply. I am ashamed to say that I have lived in newport for almost 23 years and I have never heard of this place. Ill make it my mission this week though it go and have a look around. Your right btw about there not being a good way to find out whats going on in Newport, it really does need a bit of a kick up the bum. It makes it too easy to gravitate towards Cardiff for all your artistic cravings.
