Cerebellium

Cerebellium rehearsals are going well. We have built the set and it is almost ready for us to begin working in. We have been developing the piece on paper, in discussion and in dark corridors. Tomorrow things begin in earnest. An invited audience will see this phase of the show during the last week in March. It is hoped that further development will allow the show to tour.

The show is directed by Iwan Brioc, with assistance from Professor Guillaume Thierry (neuroscientist). Also involved are Owen Davies (puppetier), Kevin Patey (composer/musician), Rob Spaull (Digital Artist), Gwyn Eiddior (set designer), Gwion Llwyd (Technical Director) and Ffion Haf (Coordinator).

The show is being supported by the Arts Council of Wales for Pontio, Bangor University’s new arts centre.Cerebellium

Storm Damage

I went for a walk on Criccieth beach yesterday and was horrified to see so many dead birds in a one mile stretch. It really brought home to me the impact the weather is having on our whole ecology.
I drew these birds in my sketch book, and took photos with my phone. Today I put them together into a short video. See the video on the Artworks

Presentation at Drawing in the University Today, International Drawing Conference, Porto.

I was invited to present my paper Learning to Dance on the Page as part of the International Drawing Conference in Porto, Portugal on 1 June 2013. The two day conference had Drawing in the University Today as its theme. The conference was a great success with many intriguing projects and papers delivered over the packed two day programme. The papers will be published in September. I will post more details when I have them. In the meantime, if anyone requires a copy of my presentation and paper, please do not hesitate to ask.

After Hours at the Polestar Club

Playwright and performer Christine Watkins invited me to be part of ‘After Hours at the Polestar Club’. In 2010 we visited the Arctic together in search of the Northern Lights, and although we didn’t see them, the trip provided inspiration for us both in a number of ways we have worked on since. For this performance we are joined by Sianed Jones and the premier was on 12 June 2013 at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. More performances can be seen on 15 August at Chapter Arts Centre, and at the Green Man Festival 17 and 18 August.

Action for Children’s Arts Award

I have just received a letter to tell me that I have been nominated to receive one of the annual Action for Children’s Arts Members’ Awards in recognition of the contribution my work makes to the enrichment of children’s lives through the arts.

The ceremony will be held at BAFTA, Piccadilly, London on 20th October 2012.

I am thrilled and honoured to have been chosen for this award. Thank you to all the children who have worked with me over the years, this is for you, too.
