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.

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 Aniversary celebrations.

 

Some links to our recent work

Citrus Arts have been very busy this year.
Here are some of the things we are working on... 


"Ghost Fishing" or "Ghost Gear" is a term for the forgotten fishing debris left in the sea that continues to do its job, even when no-one is profiting - it's just catching wildlife, and dredging the seas by itself.

We're going on a creative exploration to see what human stories this ghastly gear has captured as it swashes around the coasts of Wales.
 
Citrus Arts are about to dive in to new waters to create more meaningful magic in partnership with Taliesin Arts Centre, Dance Days and Creu Cymru supported by Arts Council Wales.
 
Daytime performances at Dance Days 2017. 8th & 9th of July @ National Waterfront Museum, Swansea.

After a successful theatre tour and a nomination for Best Dance Production at the Wales Theatre Awards, our Deers are heading outdoors, in West Yorkshire, this summer.
 
In partnership with Creative Scene, we are re-working the show for outdoor touring, starting with Oakwell Hall near Batley. These beautiful grounds are a perfect setting for our historical show to come to life with fire-illumination and live music.
 
Performances 20th to 22nd July.
 
Look out for further outdoors locations in 2018 and 2019.

" A ferociously mesmerising success; an unforgettable illusion"

Steve Stratford, Art Scene Wales

 

With the support of Caerphilly Arts Development, we are pleased to start our new community initiative for young people and their parents.

This month we will run a taster course in Circus, Dance and Theatre with the long term view of establishing an adventurous performance group that creates work for the outdoors. 

We hope to engage parents in the project by offering a unique opportunity to take part and learn outdoor arts design such as fire illumination and contribute to delivering high quality community experiences.

Sessions at Trinity Fields School, Ystrad Mynach. Wed 4.30-6.15pm (7th June - 6th July).

We are pleased to be invited back, for the third year running, to create a new special experience for GM2017 as Co-Producers of the Performing arts programme.
 
Collaborating once again with Circomedia and our friends at Ballet Cymru, we are creating “Gorge”, a magical folk tale inspired by the local legend of Llyn Cwm Llwch, for our nightly evening show.
 
As part of our “New Professionals” scheme, this production sees circus students working alongside professional dancers and aerialists to create a performance for an audience of thousands - a highlight of the festival.
 
Festival Dates: 17th – 20th  August
