Previous collaborative projects
A previous Creative Collaborations project was Cymreig Sounds of Music; a multilingual production developed collaboratively with Ysgol Hen Felin special school during the summer term of 2017. The project was an adaptation of the Sound of Music. The project was linked to pupils’ Cornerstones Blitz unit and re-told from a Welsh perspective. It developed out of an extensive research period.Pupils then auditioned, did workshops to devise the script and rehearsed and refined the performance. This then culminated in a week of performances at Coleg Y Cymoedd.
