Theatre in Wales

The latest theatre, dance and performance news


BRITH GOF ARCHIVE PROJECT Between 1981-2002 Brith Gof developed innovative approaches to theatre making in Wales and beyond: its productions included physical theatre, devised performance, site- specific work, bilingualism. The company also pioneered sophisticated forms of documentation such as self-published booklets and the recording of large-scale performances for television broadcast. The National Library of Wales is the current custodian of a substantial deposit of material on Brith Gof’s work, in multiple formats and a variety of media: video, film, photographs and slides, audio tapes, plans, drawings, scenarios, scripts and note-books. Continuing academic, professional and popular interest in Brith Gof mark this as a unique and invaluable national resource.

Between Memory and Archive: a series of public events focusing on particular
productions from different periods in the company’s history. Through presentations, interviews and discussions, practical demonstrations and the showing of a range of surviving documentation especially copied and prepared at the National Library – videos, photographs, plans, drawings, production notes – the aim is to re-evoke the productions for a contemporary academic, professional and popular audience.

Event 3: Monday 7 April 5pm-8pm. Free.

Solo performances: Ann Griffiths (1983), Iddo Fe (1985), 8961 (1985), Rhiannon (1992)

The Foundry Studio, Parry-Williams Building, Penglais Campus, Aberystwyth

In the third event, company co-founder Lis Hughes Jones reflects on the creation and staging of her solo performances in Brith Gof.
