ORACULAR:Your life in the future
Pontardawe Arts Centre is teaming up with Volcano theatre company to create an exciting piece of performance with young people from Neath Port Talbot.

We are currently looking for young people aged 16-25 to take part in the project, which culminates in a performance on Saturday June 13th. The performance is part of a larger youth arts project called ‘A New South Wales’, which has been taking place since April 1st. Young people from around the county have worked with poet Robert Minhinnick, as well as making 3 short films about their view of what a new south Wales might look like.

In this final part of the project, Volcano theatre company will guide and facilitate young people in an exploration of their ideas about the future to create a public performance. It is envisaged that the final piece will be a promenade performance, with the audience walking around to different areas to see the performers.

We would like to hear from young people who have a passion for performing and creating devised work; young people who want to engage with ideas about what our future holds in store for us; young people who are imaginative, creative and expressive. No previous performance experience necessary.

The project will comprise of an intense devising week over May half-term (25th-29th May) with two further rehearsals in the following weeks (2nd &11th June), leading up to a public sharing of the work on Saturday 13th June 7pm.

It is vital that anyone applying makes sure they are available for all of these dates.

If you would like to speak about any aspect of the project, or to request an application form, please contact Tracy Evans, Project Officer, Pontardawe Arts Centre 07866 700709 or as soon as possible.

The project will be facilitated by Paul Davies, artistic director of Volcano theatre company, which is based at Swansea Metropolitan University and is a regionally funded organisation of Arts Council Wales.
