Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch touring France and Catalonia
Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch has extensive experience of working internationally including over twenty years of touring to perform in various countries and continents, and the Agor Drysau – Opening Doors Wales international Festival of Performing Arts for Young People which is hosted by the company.
In 2013 the company received a grant from WAI to take one of its productions to a festival in Russia. Since then, that production – Where the Leaves Blow – has been performed in South Korea, Tunisia and during 2016, it has toured to three festivals in France and two in Catalonia/Mallorca. The production, which is for children and their families, has captured the imagination of producers and audiences in France and in 2017 there will be another six week tour of the country. There is no doubt that ACW’s investment in Arad Goch and WAI’s investment in the first tour to Russia has paid dividends. Since then, the production has generated more than enough income from international performances to cover all of its international touring costs. But just as important as the financial gains are the expanded market and higher profile for Arad Goch and the arts in Wales.
