ArtWorks Valleys Cinema presents the ‘BFG’

the_bfg_poster

Monday 12th December, 5pm, Soar Centre, Penygraig.

Ten-year-old Sophie is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Big Friendly Giant. Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the 24-foot behemoth is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie’s presence attracts the unwanted attention of Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater and other giants. After traveling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince Queen Elizabeth to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all.

Join us for our last event of the season which is certain to leave you feeling all warm and Christmassy.

The Little Match Seller

lms-poster-finalwebArtworks would like to invite you to the first production by our Penygraig Drama Workshop. These children are aged 8 – 12 and their commitment, passion and dedication to their show is admirable. They have been working tirelessly with their support worker Caroline Bunce to bring you their take on Hans Christian Anderson ‘the LIttle Match Seller’

The performance takes us on a journey of a little girl who is sent out into the freezing cold nights to sell her tapers. She freezes near to death for fear of the punishment should she go home with no money for the family.  One night her beloved Nana appears from the stars and we see the little match seller find her happy place once more.

We would love to show you our story so please join us in Soar Centre at 7pm on Saturday 29th October. We will be serving refreshments after the show and holding a raffle to support the development of ArtWorks and Valleys Kids.

To book your free tickets in advance or to donate a raffle prize please contact Emma@valleyskids.org or call us on 01443 303032

We look forward to seeing you and showing off our stars.

‘Changed’

Changed Poster Soar

Sunday 14th August, 7pm Soar Centre, Penygraig, CF40 1JZ

In a small town, buried amongst the hills, a young boy named Phil wakes up one morning to discover he’s changed! Bewildered and terrified by his appearance, he fears his family won’t recognise him! He spends the play tormented by his thoughts both cruel and kind.

Having discovered Phil, the family is horrified by what they see! His father, unable to recognise him and worried he might be vicious; forces him back into his room.

Phil’s younger sister Eira protests that it’s Phil! She gives him hope that in time others will see it’s really him too! 

The Change is a dark, comical and emotive story that explores what it means to be to be truly human? Set against the backdrop of a seedy circus, with stunning physical theatre, it is a terrifyingly real story told in a beautifully imagined way.

Originally Devised by Tonyrefail Nurture group and Adapted by Penygraig Youth Theatre. Written and Directed by Claire Hathway

Kafka’s story told in our own unique way!

It’s Art But It’s Not – Penygraig Art Installations

 

 

IPP Text Project FLYER DRAFTRCT Homes, Valleys Kids and Artes Mundi are currently collaborating on an exciting and innovative regeneration project called “it’s art but it’s not” as part of the Arts Council of Wales, Ideas, People and Places scheme. For the past year, a group of young people has been working with a contemporary artist Rabab Ghazoul, exploring the local environment, local history, dialogues amongst the group and conversations with local residents and businesses in the area.

The result is an amazing and inspirational installation of posters and billboards created by the group, which will feature in sites around the town. Rabab Ghazoul says, “The young people I’ve been working with have created some very subtle, touching, and sophisticated work.”

The installation was launched at a lovely event on Saturday March 12th 2016.

 If you would like to see the work there are maps available from our local shops, Penygraig Central Office at 1, Cross Street, Penygraig and the Soar Centre or you can download them here from our website.

The work is creating a mini sensation locally… do come and see for yourselves.  

 

Please call ArtWorks: 01443 303032/ 07812249921 for more details.
