To begin at the beginning ...

May 1st saw the start of my Artist in Residence at The Dylan Thomas Boathouse.

What a beautiful evening

This 'Boat' Shed is made by National Theatre wales for their Promenade performance through Laugharne Weekend of Under Milk Wood

We rehearsed a group reading choosing our favourite pieces and 
creating a cacophony of Dylan!

  The Boathouse have asked me to invite folk to join me for readings on Sunday & Monday 
of Laugharne Weekend as part of 
National Theatre's visit. Can't wait!

I have invited friends like Sian Eleri Thomas to come and read with me but if you fancy it you's be welcome too. You can email me & let me know you're coming on

I invited Sian Eleri Thomas and Denis Lennon to do readings in beautiful places ...

Then we all went to the Writing Shed for me to perform The Tethered Fairy Ring: 
A Symphonic Poem for Ukulele

And I became the first person ever to perform Ukulele in the Dylan Thomas Writing Shed

What an absolutely amazing experience! I will be resident for the whole month of May. I have been commissioned to make a digital story & Musical composition called 100 Notes for Dylan which will include the words and images of 100 visitors throughout the month. It will then be exhibited as part of the Dylan 100 Celebrations.

A Thousand Thanks to 
Eleri Retallick 
for inviting me as Resident Artist.
