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

Chapter Arts Centre in the 1970s
Canolfan Celfyddydau Chapter yn y 70au

Interviewee / Cyfwelai: Mik Flood

Since its foundation in 1971, Chapter has developed into one of Europe's leading arts centres. Mik Flood, one of the founders of Chapter, remembers the early years of the Art Centre between 1968 (when the initial idea was conceived) to his departure in 1980. Flood provides a fascinating insight into the establishment of alternative art institutions in the UK.

Ers ei sefydlu yn 1971, mae Chapter wedi datblygu i fod yn un o ganolfannau celfyddydau mwyaf blaenllaw Ewrop. Mae Mik Flood, un o sylfaenwyr Chapter, yn rhannu’i atgofion o flynyddoedd cynnar y Ganolfan Celfyddydau rhwng 1968 pan luniwyd y syniad gwreiddiol, hyd at ei ymadawiad yn 1980. Mae Flood yn cynnig mewnwelediad unigryw i ddatblygiad a ffurfiant sefydliadau celf amgen yn y DU.
