'Rhwng Dau Le'
Performances by third year BA Perfformio (Performance) students of University of Wales Trinity St David's (UWTSD)
Thursday 9th June ~ between 11am-12pm and 2pm-3pm
Friday 10th June ~ between 11am-12pm and 2pm-3pm
(Times approximate. The performance will be for part of an hour.)
‘Rhwng Dau Le’ is a site responsive performance work inspired by the natural beauty of Aberglasney. UWTSD Third year BA Perfformio students have created the work following research into historical and local accounts of the garden, the house and the surrounding landscape. The production, which showcases the young performers’ creative talents, includes song, physical performance and text based upon testimonials of previous patrons and staff members of the estate. Director and lecturer Jonathan Pugh said:
‘We have worked intensively to weave local myth and historical fact about the estate- and some of the plants growing here- into a performance that seems to exist with one foot in the past and the other foot firmly placed in today. ‘Rhwng Dau Le’ or ‘Between Two Sites’ is an opportunity to experience a vision of those events and stories that exist in and around a site, but are not always visible.’
A trailer video can be viewed on the Aberglasney YouTube channel
Students will be at Aberglasney throughout the week of the 6th-10th June in preparation for the performances on Thursday and Friday. You are most welcome to watch rehearsals if you would like to.
