This summer was a little less busy than most, in performance terms, for a variety of reasons, but now things are picking up.
This year I created a new production – Behind the Sofa – a sci-fi puppet show. This performance was developed for the event Sci-Fi Weekender in Sheffield in March, and thankfully went down well. I’ll be performing it again at their next event in November, and I’m hoping it will be booked by other sci-fi events too.
I’ve just been telling stories of wizards, witches and fantastical creatures for a Harry Potter event which was fundraising for Cancer Research. It was wonderful to tell the tales to audiences mostly dressed in assorted Harry Potter related costumes.
With Halloween coming up I’m looking forward to telling Creepy Tales and Welsh Folk Tales at the Blaenavon Ironworks, a Cadw site near my home in South Wales, for several days. Then it’s back to Sci-Fi Weekender for more Behind the Sofa shows, and then Christmas is coming…along with all the shows that go with it!
Next year is shaping up nicely too, with invitation to perform at more Cadw sites, and Port Erin Arts Centre on the Isle of Man, as well as at Folk on the Lawn and in local schools.
