Chwarae is a perfect example of the varied work that Theatr Iolo produces, presents and creates in Wales, and comes at the start of Artistic Director Lee Lyford’s first full year of work for the company.
Following a young boy’s journey as he’s unexpectedly catapulted from one world to another, Chwarae is a wonderous exploration of the joy and importance of play. Featuring live music, movement and an opportunity to play together, this Welsh Language production explores how play can help navigate the challenges that life throws us.
Lee Lyford, Artistic Director: “Chwarae encourages children and their families to have fun together, play and explore the wonderful, and sometimes complicated, world in which we live in.”
Developed collaboratively with artist Elgan Rhys and families from North Wales, Chwarae explores the importance that play has in the lives of children and adults alike and celebrates the complexities of the how, where, why, with who and what of play in our ever-busy world. It aims to encourage children to explore different ways to play, as well as to show adults the importance of play and how child-led play is vital to a child’s development and well-being. As part of the performance there will also be the opportunity during Chwarae for families to take part in a play session together.
Touring to nine venues in Wales this spring, Chwarae is being presented in collaboration with Pontio.
Chwarae is suitable for children aged 4+ and their families.
The production opened at Chapter on 1 March. There are more performances on 11 & 12 March.
