NEWPORT’S MILLENNIALS TAKE TO THE STAGE IN NATIONAL THEATRE WALES’ RADICAL STORM.3: TOGETHER AND ALONE     

NEWPORT’S MILLENNIALS TAKE TO THE STAGE IN NATIONAL THEATRE WALES’ RADICAL STORM.3: TOGETHER AND ALONE National Theatre Wales’ The Storm Cycle continues in March with a typically innovative show. STORM.3: Together and Alone is both a philosophical stream-of-consciousness on personal freedom and, in keeping with the Cycle’s aims, a surprising theatrical experiment defying conventions and keeping audiences on their toes.

This brand new show created by Mike Brookes, made and performed in Newport, will juxtapose text inspired by The Ethics of Ambiguity, an extraordinary collection of essays written by Simone de Beauvoir amidst the desolation and optimism that followed WWII, with snippets of more familiar contemporary political statements and cultural soundbites.

Its remarkable cast of actors and spoken word artists are drawn from the increasingly vocal yet politically under-represented millennial generation of the area. They include Connor Allen, Justin Cliffe, Abigail Fitzgerald, Zaru Jonson, Rufus Mufasa, Seren Vickers, Poppy Rivers-Vincent and Alexa Jones-Young.

STORM.3: Together and Alone will be performed at the Neon in Newport, during the weeks leading up to the UK’s planned withdrawal from the EU. Tickets for this groundbreaking new show are on sale now.

This is the third instalment of National Theatre Wales’ The Storm Cycle; a non-linear series of experimental theatre productions conceived and directed by Mike Brookes (with Mike Pearson, for the first two). These multimedia works are made and performed at different locations across Wales, a radical mechanism for exploring two key themes; truth and testimony.
