Unlimited

Announcing the New Unlimited Commissions…!

unlimited logoA performance exploring female desire, sexuality and neoliberalism, a roving installation celebrating mind-wandering and magic carpets, the formation of a House of disabled Vogue ball performers, and a dance between two bodies of air feature amongst our arts-commissioning programme Unlimited’s 24 incredible new commissions and awards, with over £945,000 going directly to making these ambitious artworks happen.

DAC are delighted that their Patron, Kaite O’Reilly, has been awarded an Unlimited International Commission to create the Singapore ‘d’ monologues with Ramesh Meyyappan, Peter Sau, Grace Khoo, Lim Lee Lee, Sara Beer and director Phillip Zarrilli. Kaite said – 

“The Singapore ‘d’ Monologues is an international theatrical dialogue of difference, disability, and what it is to be human, from opposite sides of the world. Inspired by previously unrecorded disabled experience, fictionalised monologues will be precedented across multiple languages (spoken/projected/visual), incorporating aesthetics of access. This performance will set an important precedent: the first multilingual, intercultural, disability-led theatre project created between the UK and Singapore.”

Congratulations also go to Chloe Clarke for her theatre piece, ‘The Importance of Being Described – Earnestly’; Lloyd Coleman and the Paraorchestra and artist Rachel Gadsden.

Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch

Hen Linell Bell – A Far Old Line Launch Event

aradgoch7.30pm Tuesday March 28th 

Canolfan Arad Goch, Bath Street, Aberystwyth SY23 INA

In July and August Arad Goch will be staging a large scale community project in Aberystwyth and the launch event will be the opportunity to learn about their exciting plans.

The project will celebrate the culture and heritage of Ceredigion by presenting a series of brand new and interactive performances and arts activities. Drawing inspiration from the story of Cantre’r Gwaelod, the sunken land in Cardigan Bay, these performances and events will take place across the town – on the streets, on the promenade, and on the beaches.

The company will be working closely with individuals, organisations, businesses, groups and schools from the area in order to create an innovative and inclusive outdoor extravaganza. Local audiences and visitors will be able to experience individual events that will also encourage them to return and experience more of what’s on offer.

One of the main aims is to bring together people from different backgrounds and interests. Here’s a rough overview of what we’re looking for:

  • Volunteers to be part of the production, marketing, stage management and costume teams – mentoring and training by industry professionals will be provided
  • various performers – instrumentalists, actors, buskers, storytellers, performers to take part in large crowd scenes, stiltwalkers, circus performers, magicians, jugglers, drummers, fire throwers, and other entertainers
  • businesses, groups and schools – to take part in dance workshops for a large scale dance performance
  • groups of cyclists, skateboarders and runners
  • ushers and stewards

If you are able to attend to share ideas and find out more please email jeremy@aradgoch.org or steffan@aradgoch.org or telephone 01970 617998
