Port Talbot

September 15th – 30th 2017

“People have forgotten how to say ‘no’. That’s the problem in this country. We are allowed to say ‘no’.”

Port Talbot steelworks; site of one of the last heavy industries in Wales, threatened with closure in 2015. The story made headlines around the world, and the Save Our Steel campaign was quick to respond, gathering a momentum that captured the spirit and uncertainty of our times.

So what happens when we come together?  What happens when we say ‘no’?

In Port Talbot, leaders, workers and unions all said no. These people came together to save their jobs and their community.

Based on interviews with steelworkers, union representatives and the people of Port Talbot, We’re Still Here is a site-specific performance. Dynamically staged in the disused Byass Works, it celebrates the unique spirit of the town.

Lifted by Beauty: Adventures in Dreaming

National Theatre WalesNational Theatre Wales

31 March – 2 April, 2017

Rhyl, Denbighshire

Rhyl is a town of many tales; a treasure trove of stories.

It is summer, now and then. Families spend hours playing on the beach. A young man pops his cherry and skips all the way back to Liverpool. Dreamers escape to Rhyl for the promise of a new life, while others watch their childhood home change around them.

Drawing upon Rhyl and its people as inspiration, Lifted by Beauty: Adventures in Dreaming is a voyage of discovery and memory, a collision of the past and the present; celebrating a place and a people on the cusp of change and transformation.

This is an experience that will lead you on a walkabout, taking in the surprising places and spaces of Rhyl. Together we can imagine and dream.
