The nation of Wales is our stage:
From forests to beaches, from aircraft hangars to post-industrial towns, village halls to nightclubs.
We bring together storytelling poets, visual visionaries and inventors of ideas. We collaborate with artists, audiences, communities and companies to create theatre in the English language, rooted in Wales, with an international reach.
You’ll find us around the corner, across the mountain and in your digital backyard.
Our audiences have followed us and Michael Sheen like disciples around his hometown, Port Talbot, to watch The Passion. Some partied with Neon Neon (Gruff Rhys & Boom Bip) in Cardiff, learning the extraordinary story of Italian publisher Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, in Praxis Makes Perfect. Hundreds climbed the foothills of Snowdon to hear poems by the national poet of Wales, Gillian Clarke and witness first-hand the annual sheep-gathering. Others donned wellies to experience Mametz, written by poet Owen Sheers and staged in farmland near Usk, and which offered a chilling glimpse of life and death in a WWI trench. And some joined us online in their pyjamas for Tim Price’s award-winning The Radicalisation of Manning, and learned about a boy from Pembrokeshire who grew to be one of the world’s most influential and divisive political figures, while chatting with other audience members all over the world.
These are just some of the nearly 40 productions we’ve staged on trains, military training grounds, beaches and mountains, in warehouses, nightclubs, tents, village halls, schools, aircraft hangars and libraries, all over towns like Barmouth, Laugharne and Aberystwyth, and in cities from Swansea to Tokyo.
The productions we make are just the tip of the iceberg. Scroll down to read more about our work and how you could get involved - as an artist, a writer, a passionate member of your own community, part of our team or as an audience member…
