WHAT?

Throughout November 2020 Le Public Space supported four solo-artists in the development and creation of new performance work in The Venue at Le Pub.

Each artist was given rehearsal space, technical support, digital support and a small amount of funding in order to create a rough work in progress performance that was shared with an audience online as part of RIGHT NOW.

At a time when larger arts venues aren’t able to function properly, we wanted to step up and help protect some of Wales’ creative sector by supporting Theatre Makers and Performance Artists who are willing and able to explore new work in alternative ways under these haphazard conditions.

The project was also about offering audiences an insight into the working processes of live art exploring how it functions and why it’s necessary.

ARTISTS WE SUPPORTED

Here are some of the amazing artists we managed to support.

CONNOR ALLEN

THE MAKING OF A MONSTER 

 

Since graduating from Trinity Saint David as an Actor, Newport born Connor has worked
with many companies in Wales and beyond.

KRYSAL S. LOWE

SEVEN  

 

Krystal S. Lowe is a Bermuda-born, Wales-based dancer, choreographer, and writer with an extensive career performing and touring the world.

SARAH MILLIGAN

MAMA  

 

After graduating, Sarah moved to Berlin where she lived for five years. During this time, she established a theatre collective, ran workshops and wrote and produced a play.

RICK YALE

DOG  

 

Rick is an actor from Cardiff who trained at Rose Bruford College. It has been his affinity to physical theatre and dance that has led him to create DOG.

WHY?

Live Art is in crisis. As a publicly owned multi-functional music venue, pub and arts centre we believe we have a responsibility to support the creative sector in Wales in anyway we can. We are making this festival of work public to not only connect artists with audiences, but to promote the wealth of talent and ideas that exist in Wales, currently unable to flourish and function.

 

We also want to promote the power of venues like us that can offer alternative-arts/artists the perfect space to explore, connect and publicly acknowledge important and revolutionary ideas.

 

This festival celebrates rough, raw, un-ready performance, offering insight into the creative process and starting a conversation between artist, audiences and other creatives, proving that artists are here and ready to make work.
