The Deep Blue Sea Helen McCrory returns to the National Theatre in Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece, playing one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Tom Burke also features in Carrie Cracknell’s critically acclaimed new production. A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952. When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge. With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing. Showing live in our cinema. 3hrs approx.

King Lear

Stan Graham

King Lear has ruled for many years. As age begins to overtake him, he decides to divide his kingdom amongst his children, living out his days without the burden of power. Misjudging his children’s loyalty and finding himself alone in the wilderness, he is left to confront the mistakes of a life that has brought him to this point. Antony Sher returns to the RSC to play King Lear, one of the greatest parts written by Shakespeare in this, one of Shakespeare’s most epic and powerful plays.

Stan Graham’s reputation amongst his peers in the songwriting world has long been established and now, songs like ‘Whitby Harbour’, ‘Alice’, ‘Closing Time’ and ‘Sarajevo’, are taking their place as folk classics up and down the country, and are being covered by the likes of Martyn Wyndham-Read, Vin Garbutt, Bill Whaley & Dave Fletcher and many more. In 2010 one of Stan’s song ‘The Olive and The Vine’ was voted as one of the Folk Songs Of The Decade by an influential international panel of Folk Radio Presenters. An occasion you’ll remember by Aberystwyth FOLK-us. ___

With their eagerly anticipated eleventh album ‘Foreverland’ released in September, The Divine Comedy are playing 18 UK & Irish dates (alongside a full European tour) this October and early in 2017, and we are really pleased to welcome them to Aberystwyth! Since The Divine Comedy’s inception in 1989, Neil Hannon has time and again proved to be one of the UK’s best and most original songwriters. New album ‘Foreverland’ exemplifies this, with references to everything from Catherine The Great to the French Foreign Legion. Neil says of the new record, ‘it’s about meeting your soul mate and living happily ever after... and then what comes after happily ever after. ___ Gyda’u hunfed albwm ar ddeg hir-ddisgwyliedig yn cael ei ryddhau ym mis Medi eleni, mae’r Divine Comedy yn mynd ar daith o gwmpas y DU ac Ewrop yn yr Hydref ac mae’n bleser gennym eu croesawu yma i Aberystwyth! Ers sefydlu’r band ym 1989, mae Neil Hannon wedi profi ei hun tro ar ôl tro i fod yn un o gyfansoddwyr caneuon gorau a mwyaf gwreiddiol y DU.

Mr Mayhew’s London By Richard Hogger and Tom O’Malley It’s Victorian London - a heaving, bustling, dirty, cramped city. When Henry Mayhew (1812-1887) reported on the lives of the London poor in 1849, he rejected official ideas about the causes of poverty. He told, vividly and with great sympathy, the stories of forgotten needlewomen, tailors, street cleaners, costermongers and street entertainers like the Microscope Exhibitor, causing a sensation, and feeding the sympathy and imagination of the great novelist Charles Dickens. This play tells the moving story of Mayhew’s London, as seen through his life and writings with a large cast and music. ___ Wedi’i gosod yn Llundain oes Fictoria, mae’r ddrama hon yn adrodd stori deimladwy’r ddinas fel y’i gwelir trwy fywyd ac ysgrifennu Henry Mayhew. Defnyddir cast mawr i gyfuno cerddoriaeth a straeon bywiog am brofiadau dynol sy’n dweud wrthym lawer am y ffordd yr ydym yn byw heddiw.

Jeremy Hardy is in his 4th decade as a stand-up this year. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 32 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 32 years to go. In 2014, the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4. He is also well known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. Indeed, Alan Bennett recently said he likes him ‘but he’s only on the radio’. However, Jeremy isn’t only on the radio, his television credits include: Jack Dee’s Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock The Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back In The Day (BBC2), Not Tonight With John Sergeant (BBC2). He is also on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984. After briefly hibernating in the winter, he’s back out on the road in 2016. ___

Aakash Odedra / Creu Cymru

Murmur 2.0 & Inked Award-winning Aakash Odedra Company pushes the boundaries of narrative style dance, using a movement vocabulary which blends contemporary Kathak and Bharat Nayam. One of the most soughtafter British choreographer/dancers today, Odedra originally trained in the South Asian styles of Kthak and Bharat Natyam, developing a distinctive movement style working with some of today’s most prestigious choreographers. Murmur 2.0 – Diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age, Aakash found conventional education at school very challenging. As written language was so alien, dance became his preferred mode of expression. In this piece, Aakash and Australian choreographer Lewis Major delve into the idea of warped and exaggerated realities. In collaboration with Lewis and Ars Electronica Futurelab (Linz, Austria), the award winning Aakash Odedra Company explores how the misconceptions of dyslexia can be revealed through visual design, light, sound and movement.           Inked – Body-marking and tattoos have been used since old times as marks of identity or  experience. In Inked, the body becomes a place of transformation, an exploration of the body’s limits and powers. ___ Cafodd Aakash ddeiagnosis dyslexia yn ifanc iawn gan ganfod addysg gonfensiynol yn hynod heriol. Roedd y gair ysgrifenedig yn estron iddo ac felly daeth dawns yn hoff ffurf o fynegiant iddo. Yn Murmur 2.0, mae Aakash a’r cwmni yn archwilio sut mae camdybiaethau ynglyn a dyslexia yn gallu cael eu datgelu drwy gynllun gweledol, golau, sain a symud.

The Zombies emerged in the 60s as one of the British Invasion’s most adventurous and musically sophisticated outfits, with such hits as ‘She’s Not There’, ‘Tell Her No’, and ‘Time of the Season’. Despite its success the band chose to disband after a whirlwind three years. In the years that followed Colin Blunstone built an acclaimed body of work as a solo artist, often working with Argent and fellow ex-bandmate Chris White. Rod Argent achieved substantial success with the band that bore his name, and established a prolific career as a producer. Argent and Blunstone reunited in 1998 amd now the modern day Zombies reamin one of rock’s hardest working touring bands, continuing to perform for a fiercely loyal audience. ___ Grŵp a ddaeth i’r amlwg yn y 60au fel un o fandiau mwyaf anturus a soffistigedig y cyfnod. Dewisodd y grŵp ymwahanu ar ôl tair blynedd o lwyddiant ysgubol – ond cafwyd aduniad o rai o’r aelodau gwreiddiol ym 1998 ac ers hynny mae’r band ar ei newydd wedd wedi mynd o nerth i nerth.

Paradise Lost (Lies Unopened Beside Me) A one-man staging of Milton’s epic Paradise Lost and not like whatever came into your head when you read the first bit of that sentence. Combining theatre, comedy and movement this is a journey through the story of the creation of everything condensed into 75 minutes. A show which brings you the highlights of this well known but often forgotten story beginning with Lucifer’s rebellion and ending with Adam and Eve’s expulsion from the garden of Eden. A single man plays all the characters, creates all the scenes and, despite his best efforts, falls a little short of perfection. A show for anyone who has created anything (child, garden, paper aeroplane) and then watched it spiral out of control. ___ Yn cyfuno theatr, comedi a symudiad, dyma daith trwy stori’r greadigaeth, wedi’i chrynhoi i 75 munud.

Amy is about to be forced to find out. ___ Drama ddoniol, ddifyr a thorcalonnus ar gyfer ein hoes fodern.

Stylish, humorous, gorgeous – and hugely entertaining, that’s the appeal of Cascade Dance Theatre, making its first visit to Aber. Sit back and enjoy three very different, totally engaging dances selected by Artistic Director Phil Williams, including two world premieres, created by Welsh and international choreographers. This is a glorious and uplifting evening of dance performed by five scintillating, hand-picked dancers. cascadedancetheatre.co.uk ___ Noson ogoneddus a chalonogol o ddawns a berfformir gan bump o ddawnswyr gwych, unigryw. Dyma ymweliad cyntaf y cwmni arbennig hwn ag Aberystwyth, yn cyflwyno dawns a greuwyd gan goreograffwyr blaenllaw Cymreig a rhyngwladol.

“Ranganathan’s punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers.” The Guardian Romesh Ranganathan’s brand new show explores the rationality of his worldview. ‘Irrational’ will see Romesh examine the issues close to his heart, and explains why everybody else is wrong about them. Romesh has come a long way since quitting his career as a maths teacher making a real name for himself appearing on BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’, ‘Jack Dee’s HelpDesk’, ‘Have I Got News For You’, BBC2’s ‘Mock The Week’, ‘The Apprentice: You’re Fired’, ITV1’s ‘Play To The Whistle’, ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’, Channel 4’s ‘Alan Carr Chatty Man’ and most recently Dave’s ‘Taskmaster’. ___

Glenn Tilbrook is the voice and face of Squeeze. It is over 40 years since he first answered Chris Difford’s ad inviting likeminded people to form the what became that evergreen band. Contrary to the title of his last album ‘Happy Ending’ there is no end in sight for Glenn whether it be solo, a duo with Chris or Squeeze. The song writing ability remains undimmed. Expect to hear the classic hits such as Muscles from a Shell, Up the Junction, Take Me I’m Yours, Slap and Tickle, Goodbye Girl, Another Nail in my Heart, Tempted, Is that Love, Black Coffee in Bed; a few beautifully penned recent tunes and the occasional wonderfully presented cover rendition of a personal favourite. ___ Ni ddylid methu’r cyfle i fynd i gyngerdd solo gan Glenn Tilbrook. Gallwch ddisgwyl clywed yr holl ffefrynnau clasurol; detholiad o donau newydd hyfryd a ysgrifennwyd yn ddiweddar ac ambell i fersiwn unigryw o ffefrynnau personol yr artist.

The heroine of this classic comedy by Willy Russell is an ordinary British housewife. As she prepares chips and egg for dinner, she ruminates on her life and tells the wall about her husband, her children, her past, and an invitation from a girlfriend to join her on holiday in Greece to search for romance and adventure. An invitation that could change her life forever. This hilariously engaging play was a hit in London and New York, performed by Pauline Collins, who later reprised her role on film winning an Oscar nomination. ___

A male photographer is taking a photograph of a female celebrity. She wants to be reinvented. She wants to be For Real. This funny, surreal and unsettling new play for 2 performers and an audience asks who’s really in control and how subtle abuses of power shape our relationships – with art, language and with each other. ___

Roedd y ddrama ddeniadol hon yn hynod o lwyddiannus yn Llundain a’r Efrog Newydd. Cafodd y ddrama ei haddasu ar gyfer y sgrin fawr a chafodd Pauline Collins, seren y ffilm, ei henwebu am Oscar. This production is produced with the help of the Swansea Grand Theatre, the Arts Council and NightOut. Rydym yn cydweithio â Theatr y Grand Abertawe, Cyngor Celfyddydau Cymru a Noson Allan er mwyn cynhyrchu’r cynhyrchiad hwn.

Mae’r ddrama newydd ddoniol, swrrealaidd a chythryblus hon ar gyfer dau berfformiwr a chynulleidfa yn gofyn y cwestiwn pwy sydd yn rheoli mewn gwirionedd a sut mae cam-ddefnyddio pŵer mewn modd cynnil yn siapio ein perthynasau – gyda chelf, iaith a gyda’n gilydd. www.actionhero.org.uk Commissioned by the Spring Festivals Commission 2015: Sprint, Watch Out, Mayfest, Pulse and Latitude Festival.

Come with us as we invite you to fly into a fantastical world of adventure, where time stands still, and if you close your eyes and believe, then you really can make anything happen. A sparkling new production with exquisite music, enthralling movement and a sprinkle of tutti frutti magic for children aged 3+ and their families to enjoy.

Formed in 2005 at the Royal Academy of Music, the trio quickly gained recognition, winning the Harry Isaacs and John Ireland prizes, and has thrilled audiences at festivals and music societies across the country.

They will be playing trios by Charlotte Bray, Frank Bridge, Benjamin Britten and John Ireland. ___

Nick Danziger – Revisited: 2005, 2010, 2015 Nick Danziger documents life on the edge and explores whether the Millennium Development Goals have succeeded in giving families a better life – are the children still hungry? Are girls now able to go to school? Or did the UN’s stated intentions end up as nothing more than a feel-good exercise to ease the consciences of world leaders? For ten years, across eight countries on four continents, Danziger worked among individuals and families living in both rural and urban areas; hamlets, villages, border towns and city slums, reflecting what has changed over the past ten years for those who have the least.

Mae Nick Danziger yn cofnodi bywyd ar y cyrion ac yn ystyried a yw Goliau Datblygiad y Mileniwm wedi llwyddo i roi bywyd gwell i deuluoedd – a yw’r plant dal yn llwglyd? A yw merched bellach yn cael mynd i’r ysgol? Neu ai dim ond ymarfer gwag i leddfu cydwybodau arweinyddion y byd oedd bwriadau honedig y Cenhedloedd Unedig? Am ddeng mlynedd, ar draws wyth gwlad ar bedwar cyfandir, bu Danziger yn gweithio ymysg unigolion a theuluoedd yn byw mewn ardaloedd gwledig a threfol; pentrefannau, pentrefi, trefi ar y cyrion a slymiau’r ddinas, yn ystyried beth sydd wedi digwydd dros y deng mlyned diwethaf o safbwynt y bobl fwyaf difreintiedig.

Dave Ball: Searching for the Welsh Landscape Searching for the Welsh Landscape is a body of new work by Dave Ball exploring the (questionable) notion that national identity subsists in the landscape. Based on a survey of five distinct hilly regions in Wales, the exhibition exhaustively attempts to address the question of whether there is such a thing as a perfect, archetypal Welsh mountain. Through a series of absurd strategies, the works embrace the nonsensical nature of the quest. Skeptical, ambivalent, and at times plain ridiculous, Ball’s approach heroically fails to reach any conclusions at all.

Corff o waith newydd gan Dave Ball yw Searching for the Welsh Landscape sy’n ystyried y cwestiwn (dadleuol) bod hunaniaeth genedlaethol yn bodoli yn y dirwedd. Yn seiliedig ar arolwg o bump o ranbarthau bryniog penodol yng Nghymru, mae’r arddangosfa yn ceisio ystyried yn drylwyr y cwestiwn a oes y math beth â mynydd Cymreig archdeipaidd, perffaith. Trwy gyfres o strategaethau absẃrd, mae’r gweithiau yn cwmpasu natur nonsenslyd y dasg. Yn sgeptigol, yn amwys, ac ar adegau yn gwbl wirion, mae gwaith Ball yn llwyddo i beidio â chyrraedd unrhyw ganlyniad o gwbl.

Haul : The Art and Friendship Group

1%: Privilege in a time of global inequality Around the world, there is a concern about the increasingly unequal distribution of wealth and income. It is estimated that the poorer half of the global population possesses less than 1% of global wealth, while the richest 10% of adults own 86% of all wealth. Oxfam reports that the combined wealth of the 80 richest billionaires is the same amount as that of the bottom 50% of the Earth’s population – 3.5 billion people. This exhibition vividly captures some of the symptoms of this worldwide disease, and highlights the imperative to combat it. These photographs from 37 leading photographers document aspects of the privilege of global wealth. ___ O gwmpas y byd, mae ‘na bryderon ynglyn ag anghyfartaledd cynyddol dosbarthiad cyfoeth ac incwm. Amcangyfrifir bod yr hanner tlotaf o’r boblogaeth fyd-eang yn meddu ar lai na 1% o gyfoeth byd-eang, tra bod y 10% cyfoethocaf o oedolion yn meddu ar 86% o’r holl gyfoeth. Mae Oxfam yn adrodd bod cyfoeth cyfunol yr 80 biliwnydd cyfoethocaf yn gyfartal i’r swm sydd ym meddiant 50% isaf poblogaeth y Ddaear – 3.5 biliwn o bobl. Mae’r arddangosfa hon yn cyflwyno’n glir rhai o symptomau’r afiechyd byd-eang hwn, ac yn denu sylw at y rheidrwydd i weithredu yn ei erbyn. Mae’r ffotograffau hyn gan 37 o ffotograffwyr blaenllaw yn cofnodi agweddau o freintiau cyfoeth byd-eang. Image / llun: Guillaume Herbaut

Chris Wilson: Sakuteiki

12 November – 14 January / 12 Tachwedd – 14 Ionawr

British Wildlife Photography Awards The winning photographs have been whittled down from thousands of entries and split in to sixteen different categories. From urban wildlife to botanical landscapes, the show celebrates the beauty and diversity of the natural world. ___ Dewiswyd y ffotograffau buddugol allan o filoedd o geisiadau ac fe’u rhannwyd yn un ar bymtheg o wahanol gategorïau. Yn amrywio o fywyd gwyllt trefol i dirweddau botanegol, mae’r arddangosfa yn dathlu harddwch ac amrywiaeth y byd naturiol.

A thousand years ago a court noble wrote the first guide to the philosophy of creating a Japanese garden – he called it Sakuteiki or Records of Garden Making. In today’s Japan, where ultrafuturistic design sits next to buildings that have stood for two thousand years, the people have retained a deep affinity to gardening, yet with so little private outdoor space the gardens they produce are the antitheses to the formal creations of sakuteiki. Chris Wilson is from Llanelli in west Wales. This exhibition is part of an extended series on aspects of everyday life in Japan. ___ Mil o flynyddoedd yn ôl ysgrifennodd bonheddwr llys yr arweiniad cyntaf i’r athroniaeth o greu gardd Siapaneaidd - yn dwyn y teitl Sakuteiki neu Gofnodion Creu Gardd. Yn y Siapan gyfoes, lle mae dyluniau tra modern wedi eu lleoli drws nesaf i adeiladau sydd wedi bodoli ers dwy fil o flynyddoedd, mae’r bobl wedi cadw cysylltiad dwfn â garddio, ond gan fod ‘na gyn lleied o le allanol preifat ar gael, mae’r gerddi a greuir ganddynt mewn gwrthgyferbyniad llwyr i greadigaethau ffurfiol sakuteiki. Mae Chris Wilson yn hanu o Lanelli yng ngorllewin Cymru. Mae’r arddangosfa hon yn rhan o gyfres estynedig ar agweddau bywyd bob dydd yn Siapan.

Creative Studios Stiwdios Creadigol The Creative Studios project was designed to develop Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s role as a creative hub for arts businesses, arts development agencies, artists and craft workers. The Creative Studios Project designed by Heatherwick Studio, worth £1 million, has been made possible by support from Aberystwyth University, the Arts Council of Wales Lottery Fund and the Welsh Assembly Government. ___ Bwriad yr unedau oedd datblygu swyddogaeth Canolfan y Celfyddydau fel man creadigol ar gyfer busnesau celf, asiantaethau datblygu’r celfyddydau, artistiad a chrefftwyr. Gwnaethpwyd y Prosiect Unedau Creadigol, sy’n werth £1 miliwn, yn bosibl yn sgil cefnogaeth gan Brifysgol Aberystwyth, Cronfa Loteri Cyngor Celfyddydau Cymru a Llywodraeth y Cynulliad.

Art and culture is for everyone. But if you have an impairment or a specific access requirement, often enjoying a visit to a theatre or an arts centre can be more complicated than just booking tickets and choosing what to wear. Hynt is a national scheme that works with theatres and arts centres across Wales to make things clear and consistent. Hynt cardholders are entitled to a ticket free of charge for a personal assistant or carer at the Arts Centre and all the theatres and arts centres participating in the scheme. Visit www.hynt.co.uk or www.hynt.cym to find a range of information and guidance about the scheme. You can also find out whether you or the person you care for are eligible to join the scheme and complete an application form.

Mae celf a diwylliant i bawb. Ond os oes gennych nam neu ofyniad mynediad penodol, yn aml, gall mwynhau ymweliad i theatr neu ganolfan gelf fod yn fwy cymhleth na dim ond archebu tocynnau a dewis beth i’w wisgo. Mae Hynt yn gynllun cenedlaethol sy’n gweithio gyda theatrau a chanolfannau celf ar draws Cymru i wneud pethau’n glir ac yn gyson. Mae gan rai â cherdyn Hynt hawl i gael tocyn yn rhad am ddim i gynorthwyydd personol neu ofalydd yn y Ganolfan y Celfyddydau a phob theatr a chanolfan gelf sy’n rhan o’r cynllun. Ewch i www.hynt.co.uk neu www.hynt.cym am wybodaeth ac arweiniad am y cynllun. Gallwch hefyd gael gwybod os gallwch chi neu’r person rydych yn gofalu amdano/i ymuno â’r cynllun a chwblhau ffurflen gais.
