National Theatre Wales: what do you think?

December 30, 2010

From Theatre in Wales:

Have your say at www.ntw-research.org.uk

A researcher at Aberystwyth University is investigating what audiences
think about National Theatre Wales’ first year of work.

There is a real lack of knowledge about what audiences get out of going to
the theatre, with very few projects interested in talking to audiences
about what they think and feel about performances. This general problem
becomes a really significant one when a theatre company is trying to do
something innovative, like NTW.

NTW began working in March this year and have already produced seven
shows, one per month, with six more planned before April 2011. They aim to
‘create bold, invigorating theatre in the English language, rooted in
Wales, with an international reach’, and to engage and involve their
audiences ‘in surprising ways and unexpected places’. This research hopes
to explore the extent to which actual audiences feel they have achieved
these goals.

It doesn’t matter whether you’ve seen only one performance or all of them
so far: the NTW Audience Research Project would love to hear your
thoughts. A quick online questionnaire is available at
http://www.ntw-research.org.uk, or contact Kirsty Sedgman at
kis09@aber.ac.uk (TFTS Dept, Aberystwyth University, SY23 2AX). The
questionnaire will only take a few minutes to complete, and you will be
making a huge contribution to this research and to a field of study which
up until now has been neglected.
