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

Interviewee / Cyfwelai: Terry Setch

Eminent painter Terry Setch came to Wales in the mid-1960s to take up a teaching position at Cardiff College of Art, where he became an influential mentor for several generations of performance artists. In this conversation Setch discusses the emergence of performance art in the context of the College and reflects on the performative dimensions of his own artistic practice.

Daeth yr artist Terry Setch i Gymru yng nghanol y 1960au ar gyfer swydd dysgu yng Ngholeg Celf Caerdydd, ble ddaeth yn fentor dylanwadol i sawl cenhedlaeth o artistiaid perfformio. Yn y sgwrs hon mae Setch yn trafod ymddangosiad celf perfformio yng nghyd-destun gwaith y Coleg, ac yn adlewyrchu ar rinweddau perfformiadol ei ymarferiad artistig.
