Lead artist Dylan Huw said:
“I’m so excited to be working with Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru on the Gwreiddioli residency, and I can’t wait to welcome more artists to become part of the process. The core aim of the project since the start has been to bring a group of people together to share, listen and think imaginatively around some of the most omnipresent (and overwhelming) issues of our lifetime, in a multi-disciplinary, open, generous, and inquisitive space. We’re building upon innovative work that has been happening between artists, organisations and communities in Wales for some time to centre the work of collective imagination as a tool in facing challenging futures. I can't wait to see what comes of this summer."
The Gwreiddioli residency is a transformative opportunity for a group of artists to ambitiously explore the potential of their work, to push the boundaries of theatre and to challenge common preconceptions about the climate crisis. The five artists participating in the project will each receive a fee of £1000.
