Sisters: Kully's trip to India

We’ll have more on our exciting Sisters project in the Autumn, but in the meantime, read Kully’s blog about her experience on her trip to India...

I have just returned from an exhilarating, if somewhat exhausting, trip to Mumbai as part of our international collaboration with Junoon Theatre.  A collaboration made possible through the British Council/Wales Arts International and Arts Council Wales as part of the UK/India year of culture. Our project…

NTW's very own Community profile

The nation of Wales is our stage / Cenedl Cymru yw ein llwyfan...

National Theatre Wales has been making English-language productions in locations all over Wales, the UK, internationally and online since March 2010.

We operate from a small base in Cardiff’s city centre, but we work all over the country, and beyond, using Wales’ rich and diverse landscape, its towns, cities and villages, its incredible stories and rich talent as our inspiration.

Mae National Theatre Wales wedi bod yn creu cynyrchiadau Saesneg eu hiaith mewn lleoliadau ledled Cymru, y DU, yn rhyngwladol ac ar-lein ers Mawrth 2010.

Rydym yn gweithio o leoliad bach yng nghanol dinas Caerdydd, ond rydym yn gweithio dros y wlad i gyd, a thu hwnt, gan ddefnyddio tirwedd gyfoethog ac amrywiol Cymru, ei threfi a’i phentrefi, ei straeon anhygoel a’i gwledd o dalent yn ysbrydoliaeth i ni.

Have been meaning to make contact since NTW began and a conversation with Carl Lavery has pushed me into action - he said 'I must talk to you'. I do find the approaches you have been finding in NTW inspiring and imaginative so its about time I got in touch! I grew up in West Wales and have been active making work as director and performer in the South West and Wales since 1996. For various reasons in the last 6 years I have been more engaged with teaching and research. I think it is time now to make work, be a practitioner again, I have a number of ideas which are perhaps 'at the edges of theatre' that I would like to develop, and am wondering how I might weave something into the NTW net(work). Could we have a chat sometime as I am not sure how my experience and skills best fit into the different channels of development you have at NTW? You can see some information on my profile page and my website is www.ailsarichardson.com Best, Ailsa

Hi John - didn't get a chance to say hello or even goodbye yesterday... we'd had a punishing journey down on the rugby train and were under pressure to shove back on to get home again - 2 carriages! can you believe it???   we survived standing for 2 hours and got seats around Ludlow... despite that, Film Team had an amazing time - thanks again to you all for a fantastic party!

Hello John,

Really interested in getting more involved with NTW, despite my age! Any advice about Group/s to join please? Acting and Directing work to date mainly with schools, Colleges, and some Adult groups, but keen to do more and to network! Have offered to work on a voluntary basis at NTW if appropriate and required.

Thank you John.  I'm so pleased to have discovered this community, as living in London has often made me feel so remote from  welsh roots and connections.  It's great to see such lively creativity being used which I hope I can contribute to, both as an Actress and writer .  Here's to a good year ahead for all

Good letter about Freedom Theatre John, thanks!

I thought people might be interested in this poem I've drafted for Jacob....Apologies if this isn't the right place to post it.

F.X .

A poem for Jacob Gough 31st July 2011.

 

Midnight chimes. Moist air carries the clangs

and the rattle-roar of the dark train that mends

the track between here and your old home, Aber.

 

No stranger to small hours, you work on

after rehearsals to make effects, cue sound

and light and programme visions.

 

At The Barmouth Assembly we asked,

What’s left after the summer tides?

And stormed the ice cream parlour

 

with music, words and war games

from Play Station conscripts. Barmouth’s band

of back bedroom snipers fire at screens of empty towns.

 

Now, manager of Freedom Theatre in Jenin,

your Call of Duty at 3.30 a.m. is to witness

the humiliation of your technician,

 

to squat in broken glass and become hostage

with young children whilst arrests are made.

Real IDF commandos with real guns,

 

pledged to uphold the impossible

‘Purity of Arms’ code to, “maintain

humanity even in combat.”

 

Earlier, on a level patch of Welsh hillside,

I reeled through a martial form: slow, elegant,

designed only to deflect unarmed attack.

 

The energy ball I held was an imagined globe

one hand on Wales, the other on Palestine.

Special ops were the hand-over of sky-

 

 

 

screaming swifts to soft fluttering bats.

Whilst turning the tides of Tai Chi

I focused on your impeccable sense

 

of timing, sharp ability to read cues

and hope this keeps you safe as gun

muzzles bore and silence.
