Invest in New Ideas
Every step in the creative process is important, from that initial lightbulb moment, right up until the closing curtain, and we need your help to keep on creating extraordinary productions in extraordinary settings. We push the boundaries of theatre to create innovative and thought-provoking productions in unexpected places. Engaging with the nation and beyond we seek out untold stories and challenge what theatre is and what it can be.
In Spring 2017, our new Artistic Director Kully Thiarai will announce her artistic intentions for our next season, and our future. Any donation you make will allow us to bring these ideas to life. You will enable us to work with more communities, create more opportunities for learning and development, and help us turn our big ideas into productions for you to enjoy across Wales and beyond.

NTW has played a pivotal role in my development as an Artist
From the very first TEAM training day I signed up for in early 2014 through to today, NTW has played a pivotal role in my development as an Artist. I came away from that first encounter hugely encouraged by the experience. It really felt like they were a company who were genuinely interested in what people were doing. This was proved, in part by not only providing the training for free, but also covering transport costs, a not insignificant gesture for the skint Artist!
Little did I realise at the time that my artistic practice would change significantly as a result of that initial encounter.
Attending Waleslab Summercamp later that year prompted a seismic shift in my practice.
I arrived a jobbing Actor/Musician & left two weeks later with the beginnings of a whole new focus on Sound Art & Performance. Crucial to this was that Summercamp wasn’t just two weeks with NTW & then “back to the real world”. It’s the ongoing support afterwards that made such a difference as I headed down a whole new road of Artistic endeavours. This is still the case three years on. Waleslab has provided me with multiple opportunities to develop & show my work in Wales, London & China. TEAM has offered me ongoing valuable experiences, working on projects that have consolidated my newly developed ideas & also really pushed me & my skillset to explore new territory. NTW has also helped to widen my network of collaborators, introducing me to other Artists with exciting new ideas & approaches. I’ve been on quite an adventure in the last three years with NTW, I’ve grown significantly in confidence as an Artist and as a person, I’ve worked on incredible projects with amazing people. I hope many more people can have this experience in the future.
I mentioned at the beginning about that first TEAM training being free to attend. Had that not been the case, I wouldn’t have been able to go along & I might never have had the wealth of experience the last three years have given me.
