Ffwrnes Scratch Night 4 April

4 April 2020 - POSTPONED

Weston Studio

Unfortunately, Ffwrnes Scratch Night on 4 April is being postponed due to the current situation with coronavirus. We will contact ticket bookers directly with more information.

Scratch nights are an opportunity for artists to try new ideas, different styles and raw concepts.

They might ask for feedback to help shape their next phase of development or just see how it feels to perform their work in front of a live audience for the first time.

This April we’re hosting a series of four Scratch nights, each with at least three pieces.

Take a chance on something new and book your seat for just £1 – then bring along some cash and ‘Pay What You Feel’ at the end of the night with 100% of the donations going directly to the artists.

Benji Mowbery and Hari Raelyn – Self Portrait (Working Title)

Self Portrait is a musical centred around the Welsh painter Gwen John.

Gwen John was an accomplished artist overlooked in her own lifetime because of the success of her own brother, Augustus John. Self Portrait will explore her struggles with self-esteem and self-belief on her journey from South Wales to Paris.

This will be a workshop sharing of songs and scenes that are a work in progress.

Krystal S. Lowe (Kokoro Arts) – The Yellow Wallpaper

While exploring themes of social perception of mental health, the treatment of mothers suffering with postpartum depression, and the pressure put on women to adhere to traditional gender roles - Krystal S. Lowe will present an adaptation of the short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman as a solo dance theatre work.

Sam Hickman – Larry

A filthy one-woman extravaganza detailing the highs and lows and many faceted issues of dating. Join Sam on stage for original music, original scores, hilarious jokes and her harp.

Scratch nights are part of our commitment to nurture talent in Wales, provide a platform for new voices and fuel fresh trains of thought.
