Gair o Gariad
Theatr Bara Caws
“Music fills space between people”
Gair o Gariad is a unique theatrical experience. Your hosts, Lleuwen and Rhodri, will welcome you with a glass of sparkling wine or water, and then, through music, their love story unfolds. This event is somewhere between a wedding reception, a wake and a radio dedication show, and what makes it especially exciting is that most of the show is created following dedications sent in beforehand by audiences. The dedications vary greatly in tone, and can be to anyone — husband, wife, partner, lover, friend, parents, grandparents, animals etc etc — you may be celebrating a birthday or an anniversary — let us know!
So, if you want to join us on this happy occasion, please send a dedication to someone you love through the Theatr Bara Caws website. Tell us what they mean to you and why you’ve chosen this piece of music, and your messages may become part of the show.
You don’t have to ask for a dedication if you want to see the show but following feedback from previous performances people were sorry they hadn’t!
Short examples of dedications:
…Mum, it’s May again, and I want you to know that I still remember…
…to my husband…I remember thinking that the worst had passed, and that spring was on its way…
…Thanks Dad, for being you…Thanks for singing me to sleep…
…Well, this is the best song in the world, so I’m dedicating it to myself!
…What a journey of experiences, from laughing out loud and pure embarrassment, to remembering long-forgotten dreams…Everyone left with eyes glistening and wide smiles on their faces…
…I saw the tissues being passed around, and the audience was emotionally touched…
