An arresting, untraditional Shakespeare with powerful performances, striking design and sensory surprises! We have stripped back action and character to zoom in on the dynamics of the killer couple, tracking their murderous ambitions, escalating anxieties and disintegrating bonds against a backdrop of sensual pleasure and normalised violence. Expect a boisterous, playful Macbeth with ribald humour and a muscular undertow of menace. This production is ideal for anyone interested in both the play itself and in contemporary performance techniques.
For the second time in its career, Volcano re-invents Shakespeare’s pacy, eloquent tragedy; this time with a new generation of outstanding performers.
“Volcano by name, volcanic by nature, the Swansea company’s psycho serial-killer drama smashes down theatre’s fourth wall, […] moving in and out of Shakespeare’s script in a night of sound and fury signifying plenty.”
Drama Shakespeare mewn arddull hynod, anhraddodiadol gyda perfformiadau pwerus, cynllunwaith trawiadol a syndod i’r synhwyrau! Ry’n ni wedi llacio’r pwyslais ar symud a chymeriad er mwyn canolbwyntio’n sylw ar ddeinameg y pâr llofruddiol, gan ddilyn eu huchelgeisiau dieflig, eu gofidiau cynyddol a datgymaliad y cwlwm rhyngddyn nhw, a hynny yn erbyn cefndir o bleserau’r corff a ‘normalrwydd’ trais. Gallwch ddisgwyl Macbeth hwyliog, llawn egni, a hiwmor amrwd ac is-gerrynt o falais cryf yn gwau drwyddo. Mae’r cynhyrchiad hwn yn un delfrydol ar gyfer unrhyw un sydd â diddordeb yn y ddrama ei hun a thechnegau perfformio cyfoes.
Am yr eildro yn ei hanes, dyma Volcano yn ail-ddyfeisio trasiedi gyflym, huawdl Shakespeare; y tro hwn yng nghwmni cenhedlaeth newydd o berfformwyr arobryn.

Animate Projects has an international reputation for supporting experimental animation, working with a wide range of artists to make work that is provocative and exciting. Gary Thomas will take us on a whirlwind tour of earlier British experiments in animation – from silent cinema (and earlier), through Post Office ads in the 1940s, and the revolutionary moment of A Yellow Submarine. He’s also bringing a selection of some of the contemporary films by artists that Animate has worked with over the last 25 years, including works for television, collaborations with scientists, and a singing appendix.

Grants will be allocated to projects that can demonstrate that they are able to make a contribution to delivering the Welsh Government’s strategy, Prosperity for All, which describes a long-term aim to build a Wales that is prosperous and secure, healthy and active, ambitious and learning, and united and connected.
The strategy identifies five priority areas which have the potential to make the greatest contribution to long-term prosperity and well-being. These are early years, better mental health, housing, skills and employability and social care. They are areas where it has been shown that earlier intervention and more seamless services can make a real difference to people’s lives.
The Volunteering Wales Grants for 2019/20 will support volunteering projects that contribute towards achieving outcomes in one or more of the priority areas.
Volunteering by young people is encouraged and supported through this grant scheme and a percentage of the funding available has been ring fenced to support projects that exclusively recruit young volunteers aged 14 – 25.
18th October - 1.30PM - Baltic House Need funding for a volunteering project? Come and find out more about the Youth Volunteering Grant over tea and coffee and learn the steps to applying! To register your attendance, please email: [email protected] Prosperity for All Grants will be
