Spoken Word

Posted by David Williams on September 25, 2016 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I have decided to market myself as a Poet :lol: and Spoken Word Artist :P My Performance Poetry website shows that I don't take myself or my work too seriously. Very often there is an earnestness and self indulgence about the medium and I just want to get a message out and have fun at the same time. I am under no illusion around the quality of my work but as they say in Welsh "chwilio gem a cael gwymon"....

SMASH IT UP/Mr & Mrs Clark

Posted by David Williams on February 26, 2016 at 5:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Friday Night. South Wales. Cardiff to be exact! Rugby or Theatre? Well it had to be Theatre for me and I'm sure I had more adrenaline running through me as an audience member at Smash it Up, than the players at the old Millennium Stadium! Sorry I can't bring myself to use the new name. New for old is what they did in Newport in 2013, smashing down the Ch...

Parallel Lines

Last night I went to the Theatre for the first time for a long time. Well over a year and a half. That is a long time for someone who purports to support and work albeit voluntarily in the arts. I was turned away from Chapter Arts, Canton on Friday because the performance was Sold Out so I bought a ticket for last night and was glad that I did. #Crackling, #Sparkling, #Tension was how I described it on Twitter with those has...

On Monday 12th October I was a 'Dirty Protestor. I'll rephrase that. I was one of a select band of writers invited from the hills, dales and towns of Mid Wales to attend a writing workshop at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre by Cardiff Theatre Company 'Dirty Protest'. So there I was in the Studio again surrounded by 11 others and expertly hosted and facilitated by Playwright and Dramaturg Branwen Davies. We were enc...

On Monday Night I attended an Open Mic Night at Aberystwyth Arts Centre which happens once a month and I'm glad I did for two reasons.. Firstly I was welcomed warmly and allowed to read 6 of my poems. This was only the second time that I had read my poetry publicly and the setting within the Performance Studio was superb. Thank you to the MC for the evening Mike Smith for his...
