"Precipice" with Circomedia at Green Man festival 2016 - We co-curated the Back of Beyond Base Camp at the Green Man Festival this year, as a platform for established Welsh companies (National Dance Company Wales, Flossy and Boo, Kitsch & Sync, Tin Shed Theatre et al), to work alongside emerging artists to experience the thrill of working as part of an inter-disciplinary team. Our headline show "Precipice" was directed by Citrus Arts in collaboration with Circomedia.

Lead Creative Schools Scheme - Supported by Arts Council Wales & Welsh Assembly Government, this innovative collaboration that seeks to improve creative learning in schools will run until 2020. James is sharing our creative habits of mind with four schools across south Wales as a Creative Agent, and Creative Practitioner.

Citrus Arts are appointing a Board of Directors - This is a significant step for us as a company. This development in our operations will support our contribution to performing arts in Wales, and our mission to take our work & expertise further afield. We have a fantastic team on board and look forward to introducing them soon.

The Muni, Pontypridd - In our home town we're supporting this much-loved venue's re-invigoration as an artistic hub for our community. Local artists are already mixing with professionals from from as far as Canada, to offer this beautiful building as a progressive place for artists from all over Wales.

Ar Waith Ar Daith – We're very proud to have played our part as Performance Directors/ Choreographers on this Welsh Journey of myth and magic, created by outdoor arts experts Walk the Plank on their commission from Wales Millennium Centre, as part of its 10th Anniversary programme. 600 participants took part and 19 Welsh arts companies contributed. The ripples from the associated AWEN Schools programme are becoming waves, as arts companies and practitioners apply their learning to create shows, events & interventions across Wales.
