National Theatre Wales are excited to announce that there is an amazing opportunity coming up soon!The amazing opportunity is a chance for 8 spoken word artists/poets between the ages of 16-25 to take part in Talking Doorsteps. Talking Doorsteps is a project set up by The Roundhouse Theatre, and thanks to both the Roundhouse and NTW TEAM it will be taking place in Cardiff.It’s a 3 day program where 8 lucky people will be given the chance to take part in some workshops with a Roundhouse Poet. These will be used to create and develop a piece of work. Participants will be filmed in a variety of locations around Cardiff performing their pieces, which will be put online by The Roundhouse on their website & YouTube Channel. Two people from this project will then be chosen to represent Wales in ‘Last Word’ Festival. . . All travel and accommodation will be covered for the duration of project.
