If you have any information on performance in Wales that could be of use to the project, please get in touch!

Whether you are an artist who has made performance work in Wales, or an audience member who once witnessed a performance (voluntarily or involuntarily!), we would be pleased to hear from you.
Any material will be of interest - from actual pieces of documentation to vague memories of events caught out of the corner of one's eye.
mail@performance-wales.org

Cysylltwch â ni os oes gennych unrhyw wybodaeth am berfformio yng Nghymru a allai fod o ddefnydd i'r prosiect!

Efallai eich bod yn artist sydd wedi gwneud gwaith perfformio yng Nghymru, neu'n aelod o gynulleidfa a welodd berfformiad unwaith (o'ch gwirfodd neu'n anwirfoddol!). Pwy bynnag ydych chi, hoffem glywed gennych.
Bydd unrhyw ddeunydd o ddiddordeb - o ddogfennau gwreiddiol i atgofion amwys am ddigwyddiadau a welwyd o gornel y llygad.
Mae'r manylion cyswllt wedi'u rhestru dan 'Cyswllt' yma, neu gallwch anfon e-bost i'r cyfeiriad hwn: mail@performance-wales.org

Cardiff College of Art - Coleg Celf Caerdydd

Interviewee / Cyfwelai: Joan Baker

Cardiff College of Art was one of the first art schools in the United Kingdom to offer dedicated tuition in performance. Painter Joan Baker taught at the College for 46 years. In this interview Baker provides a detailed insight into the history of the College, the emergence of performative work in the 1950s and its development in the 1960s and 1970s under Tom Hudson and John Gingell.

Roedd Coleg Celf Caerdydd ymhlith y colegau celf cyntaf yn y Deyrnas Unedig i gynnig hyfforddiant penodol ym maes perfformio. Bu’r arlunydd Joan Baker yn dysgu yn y Coleg am 46 o flynyddoedd. Yn y cyfweliad hwn, mae Baker yn rhoi darlun manwl o hanes y Coleg, gwreiddiau gwaith perfformiadol yn y 50au a’i ddatblygiad yn y 60au a’r 70au dan arweiniad Tom Hudson a John Gingell.
