Selected Public Realm Projects

A Fall into Grace Part 1 - the Coliseum Theatre Aberdare, shown in July 2011;  included a series of love stories collected from members of the public, together with a tableaux of stereoscopic theatrical images depicting an imagined love story. A current phase of the project, supported through Arts Council of Wales, will encourage more members of the public to contribute a love story either fictional or biographical and these will form a new anthology of writings about love.
