NOW THE HERO

A POWERFUL MEMORIAL OF CONFLICT, PROTEST, PROSE & PERFORMANCE 

Wednesday 26 – Saturday 29 September 6.30pm

100 years on…
Three soldiers land on a smoke-filled Swansea beach…
Three warriors from different ages:  WWl \ Celtic \ Contemporary.
Together they run towards refuge. As they sprint over the sand a peace protester bellows from a megaphone the opening lines of an ancient poem. The words resonate still. Tonight they will be sung…

Taliesin joins partners to present Now the Hero this September.

Now the Hero commemorates 100 years since World War I. It weaves three stories of war; the Celtic Warrior, a World War I soldier and that of the recently serving Swansea soldier, Captain David Williams. Three soldiers are joined by the protagonist, Peace Protester and a host of performers who will take you on an extraordinary journey.

Through performance, poetry, prose and music, this powerful memorial offers a moving reflection on war from past and present, and a prevailing message of peace. It culminates in an outdoor harvest supper which includes the indigenous vegetables and herbs depicted in the Brangwyn Panels.

At the heart of this promenade performance will be a beautiful requiemsung by the world famous choir, Polyphony, with a libretto written by Bafta Cymru winner and Swansea University’s Professor of Creativity, Owen Sheers. The requiem has been composed by Owen Morgan Roberts – realised from an original collaboration with the late, Oscar-nominated Jóhann Jóhannsson (The Theory of Everything, Arrival). For over a decade, renowned conductor, Stephen Layton’s Grammy award winning choir, have been performing sell-out concerts as one of the world’s leading choirs.

‘Stephen Layton’s choir have become renowned for both their sound and versatility – whether in early music, or contemporary works such as those of Eric Whitacre, they embody the remarkable tradition of British choral excellence at its finest.’ Gramophone Magazine

Now the Hero takes place Wednesday 26 to Saturday 29 September, 6.30pm.

Book tickets priced £15, £12 concession today for Wales’s highlight of 14-18 NOW.

Bookings are through Swansea Grand Theatre, online or from their Box Office on 01792 47 57 15.

AND SUDDENLY I DISAPPEAR

THE SINGAPORE/UK ‘D’ MONOLOGUES – TOURING ENGLAND AND WALES SEPTEMBER 2018

“Victims, villains, metaphors, parodies, benefit scroungers or inspiration porn stars…. I was tired of the way disabled characters were portrayed and frustrated by the limited range of parts available for disabled and D/deaf actors, so decided to be the change I wanted to see and initiated The ‘d’ Monologues in 2009.” Kaite O’Reilly
AND SUDDENLY I DISAPPEAR: THE SINGAPORE/UK ‘D’ MONOLOGUES is the latest manifestation of the project – fictional monologues in multiple languages inspired by conversations and interviews with under-represented and overlooked disabled and D/deaf people in Singapore and across the UK.

Innovative in form, multilingual and intercultural in its nature, AND SUDDENLY I DISAPPEAR: THE SINGAPORE/UK ‘D’ MONOLOGUES is an international dialogue of what it is to be human from opposite sides of the world. A triumph after its World premiere in Singapore in May 2018, the performance comes to the UK for a limited number of performances, opening the Unlimited Festival at Southbank Centre 5-6 September 2018 and touring to Oxford, Leicester and Cardiff (further dates and venues, below).

The company consists of pioneering artists exploring new theatre languages and form, with the aesthetics of access – audio description, captioning, sign language – at the very heart of the work. Poignant, provocative, with passion and sly wit, stories of difference are told live and via video in unexpected ways, reveling in all the possibilities of human variety.

The show isn’t about access, it’s about the innovative use of theatre languages – mixing visual and spoken storytelling in dynamic form, interweaving English with some Mandarin, Cantonese, Welsh and British Sign language sequences. There’s no static sign language interpreter in the corner of the stage, but live and pre-recorded sequences that tell little-known stories physically and visually, with creative captioning throughout.

The outstanding cast includes Sophie Stone (currently at The Globe in ‘Emilia’), Garry Robson (currently at The National in ‘Titus Andronicus’), Deaf visual language director/performer Ramesh Meyyappan, Welsh disability icon Sara Beer, and introducing Macsen McKay. Singapore performers Peter Sau (National Best Actor award winner) and Grace Khoo perform live, joined by other disabled Singaporeans via film and video sequence. The monologues are written by award-winning playwright Kaite O’Reilly and directed by Phillip Zarrilli.
