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

Establishing Performance Art in Wales
Sefydlu Celf Perfformio yng Nghymru

Interviewee / Cyfwelai: Di Setch

Artist Di Setch was a key figure in the establishment of performance art in Wales in the late sixties and early seventies. In this conversation she shares her memories of the emergence of performance within the context of Cardiff College of Art, where – in her role as a tutor on the College’s foundation course – she helped to pioneer performative approaches to teaching.

Chwaraeodd yr artist Di Setch ran allweddol yn y broses o sefydlu celf perfformio yng Nghymru´r 1960au hwyr a´r 1970au cynnar. Yn y sgwrs hon mae hi´n rhannu ei hatgofion o ymddangosiad perfformio yng nghyd-destun Coleg Celf Caerdydd. Wrth weithio fel tiwtor ar gwrs sylfaen y Coleg, chwaraeodd ran yn natblygiad dulliau arloesol o ddysgu perfformiadol.
