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

The Early Years of Chapter Arts Centre
– A Guided Tour

Blynyddoedd Cynnar Canolfan Celfyddydau Chapter
– Taith Dywysedig

Interviewee / Cyfwelai: Dave Hutton

Since its foundation in 1971, Chapter has developed into one of Europe's leading arts centres. Dave Hutton was the technical manager of Chapter’s theatre throughout most of the 1970s and 1980s. Hutton leads a guided tour through the building that recalls the many people and events that helped to shape Chapter’s early history and the technical infrastructure that was created to support them.

Ers ei sefydlu yn 1971, mae Chapter wedi datblygu i fod yn un o ganolfannau celfyddydau mwyaf blaenllaw Ewrop. Dave Hutton oedd rheolwr technegol theatr Chapter yn ystod rhan fwyaf o’r 1970au a´r 1980au. Mae Hutton yn ein harwain ar daith dywysedig trwy´r adeilad ac yn olrhain nifer o’r bobl a’r digwyddiadau a ddylanwadodd ar hanes cynnar Chapter, yn ogystal â´r seilwaith technolegol a grëwyd ar gyfer eu cynnal.
