The latest theatre, dance and performance news

A Rust-See Show!     

Wales based theatre company Green Ginger, brings its latest show ‘Rust’ filled with grotesque puppets, animated sets and absurd humour to Wales Millennium Centre’s Weston Studio from 20-22 December.

Directed by Flick Ferdinando and with original music by Simon Preston, Rust is the tale set off the Welsh coast of two pirate radio stations anchored in the same murky coastal waters. One transmits from an ageing lightship; its arch-rival broadcasts from a submarine lurking just beneath the oil-slicked surface.

Green Ginger’s Co-writer and Performer Chris Pirie explains, “The show has a couple of fiery Welsh characters. One is called Lionel the Vinyl who owns the local record store and the other is the local preacher and factory-owner, Reverend Evan Jellicoe. You’ll have to come and watch the show to see what they get up to!

“We represent Wales all around the world and have been to far away destinations such as Tokyo and California to raise the awareness of Wales and its cultural exports. We are thoroughly looking forward to performing at Wales Millennium Centre.”

Having just returned from the 8th International Figure Theatre Festival in Norway and a sold-out week in Bristol, Rust is a fast-moving story of truth and treachery, piracy and passion, sex, death and vinyl.

Terry Lee, who formed Green Ginger in 1978 in Tenby, made a name for him self with film and television puppetry, working as a manipulator and voice artist for ITV's successful satire Spitting Image and as a puppeteer for Jim Henson's Dark Crystal (1982), Labyrinth (1986) and Frank Oz's Little Shop of Horrors (1986).

The performance opens on Tuesday 20 December and continues through to Thursday 23 December. Performances start at 8pm, with one matinee show at 1pm on Thursday 22 December, with tickets priced at £8/10.

RUST has been made possible with generous project funding by Arts Council Wales and Arts Council England. Touring support for Green Ginger is acknowledged from British Council and Arts Wales International.

Wales Millennium Centre is a project supported by Lottery grant from the Millennium Commission and a direct grant from the Welsh Assembly Government.
