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

New Music Scene in Britain
Sin Cerddoriaeth Newydd ym Mhrydain

Interviewee / Cyfwelai: Victor Schonfield

Writer Victor Schonfield has been a key player in the New Music scene in Britain since the early 1960s, most notably as administrator for the influential concert society, Music Now. In this interview, Schonfield talks about his involvement in this scene working as an agent for musicians including AMM, and of attending a little-known performance by Cornelius Cardew in Bangor in 1963.

Mae’r ysgrifennwr Victor Schonfield wedi chwarae rhan allweddol yn y sin Cerddoriaeth Newydd ym Mhrydain ers y 1960au cynnar, yn enwedig fel sylfaenydd a gweinyddwr Music Now, a trwy drefnu a hyrwyddo cyngherddau. Yn y cyfweliad hwn, mae Schonfield yn siarad am ei ymglymiad gyda’r sin wrth weithio fel asiant ar gyfer cerddorion megis AMM, a'i atgofion o fynychu perfformiad cymharol anadnabyddus gan Cornelius Cardew ym Mangor yn 1963.
