The Lord, The Warrior And The Welsh Cake

26 Jan

It’s been an exciting day. I shook hands with a lord, hung out with a Celtic warrior, sipped tea and ate a Welsh cake in an art deco temple in Swansea, and watched a film about my model and me. Here it is….

I’ve been involved in this expansive art project, Nawr Yr Arwr / Now The Hero for some time but couldn’t say anything until the official launch today. I’ll be working mostly on this body of work for the next 9 months …….

Darkness 1

I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow……..

“Nawr Yr Awr \ Now The Hero is an immersive theatrical experience that will take the audience on an extraordinary journey through three intertwining narratives of war; from Celtic history, the First World War, and today’s conflicts. 

Drawing on an epic poem, some rejected paintings, and an intimate portrait of a Swansea soldier serving today,  Marc Rees’ bold production brings the stories of war to life, but counterpoints the tragic telling with hope.”

    Wow! How interesting, and moving… The picture is marvellous, and it’s fascinating to hear all the background to creating it. (nice to hear your voice too!)

      Thanks Lois. I’m always embarrassed when I hear my voice, but I suppose that’s a common reaction 😀

        Yes… I hate the sound of my voice… but you have a lovely voice, so expressive! Love this piece of work, and hearing the ‘inside’ story was so interesting and really put the picture into a context.
