I photographed one of the first rehearsals of this year’s National Theatre of Wales Christmas show,’The Insatiable, Inflatable Candylion‘.
The shoot consisted of a host of great actors and creative talent, including Wils Wilson [director], Tim Price [writer],and Gruff Rhys & Sweet Baboo [musicians].
This hypnotic show will burst with colour, vibrancy and great music – without a shadow of doubt it’s going to be ace.
For more info, check out the Candylion page on NTW’s website and book yourself a ticket.
Also take a look at Gruff’s Candylion video from 2006 – love it

I went to Africa in September with the Safe foundation charity to document their clay oven project in the tororo region,Uganda. Whilst there I also produced a number of paste ups of portraits taken, which you can seen here. The people we stayed with and encountered were truely amazing and this mural is my ode to this great community
On my return to Cardiff I collaborated with the brilliant Ladder-less Window Painting Co, Trin & Beth. They came up with this red diamond design and I asked for some yellow, so all the colours of the Ugandan flag are represented – I’m already looking forward to working with these girls again and producing more work.
The Ugandan mural on Lowther rd is also connected to the Made in Roath annual festival.
5pm this Friday [30th October] at the No fit state building [four elms, Cardiff], there’ll be a free informal sharing of Mother, Mother by performers Alice Ellerby & Rosy Roberts and directed by Mish Weaver.
The project is at research & development stage and is a circus show that considers the experience of becoming a mother in social, ethical and physical terms.
It’s been supported by Arts Council England, Lab:time, Circomedia and NoFit State Circus.
