It is a monumental work for this internationally renowned writer.  www.caridadsvich.com

Film Moonlight
Sunday 26 March3.30pm
Moonlight (15)

Written and directed by Barry Jenkings and based in part on Jenkins himself, and in part on Tarell Alvin McCraney, whose play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue is the inspiration for Jenkins’ script. Three chapters in a troubled life: as a boy (Alex Hibbert), taken under the wing of a local drug-dealer (Mahershala Ali); as a teen (Ashton Sanders) who falls in love with his best friend; and as a man (Trevante Rhodes) who must resolve his inner identity with his hardened, crack-pushing exterior. It’s rare to see three different actors depict a single life so convincingly, and Jenkins wisely gives each roughly equal screen time so the heavy load of Chiron is evenly spread.

Opera Lakmé (Dlibes)Saturday 13 May    7.30pm

Swansea City Opera presents
Lakmé

This production of Lakmé, directed by Brendan Wheatley and musical direction John Beswick, is set in India during the 1880’s. Though famous for the ‘Flower Duet’, which has become so familiar, Lakmé contains many other hidden musical gems including the stratospheric and challenging ‘Bell Song’. 

Like other French operas of the period, it captures the ambience of the Orient seen through Western eyes and, topically for today, tells of religious tensions and conflict leading to personal sacrifice, heartbreak and death.

Sung in English

There will be a pre-performance talk about the opera and production given by the Artistic Director of Swansea City Opera, Brendan Wheatley. (6.15pm)

Literary Lit Soc: Victoria Field
Friday 20 May10am - 4pm

'One Hundred Shades of Green'

Literary Society director Fiona Owen introduces Victoria Field.

This writing workshop will explore our relationship to the natural world with a particular emphasis on the beauty and abundance of the month of May.  We will read and discuss poems and short pieces of prose to explore how writers have approached questions such as climate change, the land, animals, birds and plant life.  We will write in response and practice some close observation. We will also look at how the environment can act as a mirror for human experience and dilemmas. No experience necessary as the workshop will focus on generating new writing rather than critiquing.  Please bring a notebook and something to write with.

 

Victoria Field is a writer and poetry therapist.  Her writing includes memoir, poetry and drama and she has been commissioned for BBC Radio 3 and 4. She is a qualified Mentor-Supervisor for the International Federation for Biblio-Poetry Therapy and is passionate about the transformative power of reading and writing, especially in groups.  She teaches at Canterbury Christ Church University, Metanoia Institute, Professional Writing Academy and Tŷ Newydd, National Writers Centre for Wales. She has been writer-in-residence in Truro Cathedral and for the RSPB in Blean Woods in Kent.  More details on www.thepoetrypractice.co.uk

This is the second in the RSC’s Rome Season which showcases four of Shakespeare’s most political and bloody plays, set in and around ancient Rome.


Following the assassination of Julius Caesar and his own rise to power, Mark Anthony chooses a life of self-indulgence with Cleopatra, Queen of Eqypt. Distracted he lets go the reins of military power and the lovers come to their tragic end.  Directed by Iqbal Khan (Othello (2015) and Much Ado About Nothing (2012)) with Josette Simon taking on the role of Cleopatra (TV: Lewis Midsomer Murders and Death in Paradise. RSC: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1999)) and Antony Byrne as Mark Anthony (TV: Jerico, Silent Witness RSC: Henry IV Parts I and II, Richard II).

Designed by Robert Innes Hopkins. all four plays in this season share a great creative team. This, together with a reconfiguration of the stage, will bring an added intimacy to what will be a brutal, bloody and thrilling programme.
