GALWAD's young cast rehearsing in Swansea.

DEVISING LIVE

The live performance of the 2022 GALWAD story is written by Owen Sheers, Hanna Jarman and Emily Burnett, directed by Gethin Evans, art directed by Marc Rees and Edith Morris, filmed by Bani Mendy and devised with the young cast. The script is multi-lingual – combining Welsh and English and BSL.  

 

This process of devising over 6 weeks builds on the exceptional network of youth-led practices in Wales and on the considerable history of site-specific theatre. Using immersive, one-shot cinematography, this will be the first live-streamed story told over seven days in the UK.
