‘Brilliantly staged and thought-provoking, Frongoch presents an irresistible model of how theatre might cross linguistic barriers in this country.’ The Irish Times
Mí Mhárta na bliana seo, cuirfidh Project Arts Centre failte roimh Llywfan Gogledd Cymru i mBaile Átha Cliath do chomh léiriú trí-theangach ar Frongoch, léiriú il-mheáin le Ifor ap Glyn agus le Mícheál Ó Conghaile á stiúriú ag Ian Rowlands. Pléann Frongoch le imtheorannú Éireannach (dream iomráiteach a raibh Michael Collins ar dhuine acu) sa Bhreatain Bheag, agus tionchar an imtheorannaithe siúd ar bhunadh na Breataine Bige.
After the Easter Rising, 1,800 Irish Volunteers were imprisoned in the Frongoch POW camp near Bala, North Wales. There, plans were laid which eventually led to independence. There also, Michael Collins rose to prominence. Frongoch is an exploration of the events at the camp which shaped two nations. It asks questions of Wales and Ireland which are as pertinent now as they were then and ponders that while one nation sacrificed its language and gained independence the other kept its language and sacrificed freedom. A true Irish Welsh collaboration cast and crew are drawn from both sides of the Irish Sea. ‘Frongoch’ is performed in English, Irish and Welsh, translation is given throughout.
