What’s Welsh For Performance?

By Heike Roms, 3 February 2008

Heike Roms What's Welsh for Performance? Beth yw 'performance' yn Gymraeg? An Oral History of Performance Art in Wales 1968-2008 For more than forty years artists have been creating performances, happenings and other time-based art in Wales, yet their work remains largely confined to half-remembered anecdotes, rumours and hearsay. What's Welsh for Performance? tries to uncover Wales's hidden history of performance in conversations with key artists who have shaped this history since 1968. Their memories, accompanied by extensive documentation, paint a vivid picture of the vibrancy and importance of performance art in Wales and elsewhere. With: Shirley Cameron; Ivor Davies; Anthony Howell; John Chris Jones; Timothy Emlyn Jones; Andrew Knight; Roland Miller. Dr. Heike Roms is a lecturer in Performance Studies at Aberystwyth University, Wales.
