Valleys Girl     

Valleys Girl For the past year, Head for Arts has been developing arts projects of all sorts in communities across Merthyr Tydfil, Blaenau Gwent, the Upper Rhymney Valley and North Torfaen. So far it has run more than 230 sessions, working with over 3,000 people and 35 community groups

Material and participants generated from these activities have contributed to the exciting and ambitious Valleys Girl community performances.

Valleys Girl is a unique bi-lingual play in four acts – with each act being a stand-alone piece in a different venue, in a different county, with a different local cast. All the dialogue, the words of the songs and the stories that make up the performance have all come directly from the mouths of members of the community and each part of the play portrays a different season through music, dance, visual arts and digital stories.
