EXPERIMENTICA 24: good cop bad cop: MINCE

  • 1h 30m

£3 - £10


  • Duration 1h 30m

Somewhere between group conversation, performance and communal Karaoke, MINCE explores the 'thin place' of the performance arena where mythology and reality collide. Wide ranging drivers for the work include symbolic Welsh creation myths to myths surrounding game-changing performances to half-remembered fragments from our extensive back catalogue. MINCE plays with the power of the liminal between ‘real’ and ‘imagined’.

good cop bad cop is the creative partnership of John Rowley and Richard Huw Morgan. Collaborating since 1990, initially with internationally renowned Welsh performance company Brith Gof, and since 1992 creating over 75 of their own works. They’ve performed internationally with support from British Council and Wales Arts International.

They create new forms of, and contexts for, performance, from the 15 minute improvisation on other people’s sets to a Wales-wide, globally-broadcast, alternative vocal talents search, to a weekly arts radio programme. Work is constructed in "the real world" without the safety net of established form, for the "Imagined Communities" of a future Wales.
