Welcome Croeso

We’re looking at the world this autumn, with a particular focus on Europe. We’ve plays about the First World War, an evening of short performances from across Europe, cooking from Andalucía and an evening in a traditional Jewish bathhouse. Our Euro-visions include our exhibitions. Hanes: tales/stories/legends/myths weaves narrative through the work of over 17 artists, both contemporary and work from the School of Art Collections, The Surrealist Murmuration unlocks doors on European surrealism, and award-winning artist Rhi Moxon explores food and folklore from across the continent. Further around the world there’s a welcome return of breathtaking Kathak-inspired dance from Aakash Odedra, an evening of Kathakali, an exploration of migration from Gwyn Emberton, a season of world dance films from Migrations, music from Canada and of course our special autumn treat, a touring production of Around the World in 80 days.. There’s much, much more to enjoy as well as the nights get longer, great comedians like Rich Hall and some musical highlight, not least Elaine Paige and the great Rhydian, Richard and Adam. We end the season with a real Victorian feel with a clutch of Christmassy concerts and our own pre-christmas family show, The Little Matchgirl, a gorgeous magical musical. 2

OMAR SOSA & SECKOU KEITA

Thursday 9 November | Nos Iau 9 Tachwedd | 7.30pm / £14 (£12)

Wednesday 8 November | Nos Fercher 8 Tachwedd | 8pm / £20 Transparent Water is an exquisitely beautiful new collaboration between the seven-time GRAMMYnominated pianist, composer and bandleader Omar Sosa from Cuba, and the awardwinning Senegalese kora master and singer Seckou Keita. Following the worldwide release of their debut album Transparent Water, the pair are taking to the road in together this November with percussionist Gustavo Ovalles to give UK audiences a thrilling live experience of their new recording. | Mae Sosa a Keita yn anturiaethwyr cerddorol adnabyddus gyda threftadaeth fyd-eang gyfoethog sy’n pontio dylanwadau jas, lladinaidd ac Affricanaidd, ac mae’r cyfuniad o’r ddau artist ar y llwyfan efo’i gilydd yn addo noson arbennig iawn.

Forty years ago Doug Scott CBE and that other icon of mountaineering, Chris Bonington, made the first ascent of The Ogre (7285 m) in the Karakoram. Their climb extended the boundaries of what had been achieved before at that altitude. But it was the subsequent descent from the summit in the dark, turning a catalogue of disasters that would have defeated most people, into an epic which has since entered mountaineering folklore. With the aid of newly discovered photographs and diaries, legendary mountaineer, Doug Scott will be telling a thrilling tale of hard climbing, team work and survival against all odds, in his famously laconic and humorous style. | Gyda chymorth ffotograffau a dyddiaduron sydd wedi dod i’r amlwg yn ddiweddar, bydd y mynyddwr enwog Doug Scott yn adrodd straeon cyffrous am ddringo heriol, gwaith tîm a goroesi er gwaethaf pob disgwyl, yn ei steil cryno ac hwyliog arferol.

BUBBLE SCHMEISIS Wednesday 6 December | Nos Fercher 6 Rhagfyr / 7.45pm / Pay what you decide / Talwch beth y penderfynwch Bubbemeises is Yiddish, it translates as a grandmother’s story, a tall story, an old wives’ tale. Writer and street performer Nick Cassenbaum invites you into the warmth of the Canning Town Schvitz, East London’s last authentic bath house. Amongst the steam and ritual Nick will take you on a journey to find the place he belongs. Schlaping through summer camps, barber shops and Spurs games. Will he find what he was looking for? Bubble Schmeisis is full of intimate and personal true stories about identity, home and getting schmeised (washed) by old men. The show changes depending on who is in the audience and how they respond, leaving no performance the same. | Mae Bubble Schmeisis yn llawn straeon gwir personol a phreifat am hunaniaeth, cartref a chael eich schmeise (golchi) gan hen ddynion. Mae’r sioe yn amrywio yn dibynnu ar bwy sydd yn y gynulleidfa a sut y maent yn ymateb, fel nad yw’r un perfformiad yr un peth.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night out than Karl Heinrich Marx. 220mins TBC | Yn methu ysgrifennu, ei briodas yn pylu, ei gyfaill Engels yn isel ei ysbryd, ei unig obaith yw cael gwaith ar y rheilffordd. Ac eto ‘does neb yn y brifddinas a all mwynhau ei hun yn well ar noson allan na Karl Heinrich Marx. 220munud. I’w gadarnhau.

Rich Hall’s critically acclaimed new show begins its second leg of touring. Hall’s precision dismantling of the tenuous relationship between two countries is as freewheeling and deadly accurate as ever. His BBC Four documentaries, most recently Rich Hall’s Countrier Than You and Rich Hall’s Presidential Grudge Match have built him a new legion of followers, as have appearances on Have I Got New For You and QI.

Featuring stunningly convincing vocals, the three leading men create a truly emotional musical journey. Career highs include starring in London’s West End, numerous worldwide TV appearances and performing live with the Bee Gees themselves! Accompanied by a live String Section the Bee Gees Greatest Hits are brought incredibly back to life and features a stunning acoustic medley of some of the Bee Gees earlier hits. The uncanny voices of the three lead singers create a truly emotional musical journey in this amazing concert! | Yn nodweddu lleisiau sy’n syfrdanol o argyhoeddiadol, mae’r tri phrif ganwr yn creu taith gerddorol sy’n wir emosiynol. Gyda chyfeiliant Adran Linynnau fyw rhoddir bywyd newydd i ganeuon mwyaf poblogaidd y Bee Gees yn y cyngerdd anhygoel hwn!

This show has all the fun of a pantomime with a never seen before storyline featuring Candy the Christmas Fairy who has magic to use only on Christmas Eve to bring 4 toys to life out of the toy box in time to meet Santa! But she needs the children to give her a little help with saying her magic spell - do you know some children who are up to the challenge? Packed with live singing, dancing, games, and followed by the chance to meet all 6 on stage characters for photos, and a visit for children to Santa & Mrs Claus for photos and a gift. | Yn llawn canu, dawnsio a gemau, gyda’r cyfle wedyn i gyfarfod â’r 6 cymeriad sy’n ymddangos ar y llwyfan ar gyfer ffotograffau, a chyfle i’r plant ymweld â Santa & Mrs Claus ar gyfer ffotograffau ac anrheg.

The show features important works by internationally renowned artists David Hockney and Bedwyr Williams, shortlisted for the Artes Mundi prize in 2017, winner of the Eisteddfod gold medal, and who has represented Wales at the Venice Biennale twice. Another major focal point will be an enormous 25 feet tall giant, Bendigeidfran, made by Small World Theatre in Cardigan, who will inhabit the main gallery space. | Bydd yr arddangosfa, a gynhelir mewn dwy o orielau’r Ganolfan, yn ystyried tair prif thema sef: Cymru a Chwedlau, Straeon Gwerin a Thylwyth Teg, a Mytholeg.

Traditions are flexible, constantly changing and evolving as migration and external influences affect the way we eat, cook and gather.

It represents travels across Spain, Eastern Europe, Poland, and at home in Wales, and the rural traditions that, though varied, connect us all in ways we may not realise. | Mae traddodiadau’n hyblyg, yn newid ac yn datblygu o hyd wrth i ymfudiad a dylanwadau allanol effeithio ar y ffordd yr ydym yn bwyta, yn coginio ac yn ymgynnull.

CREATIVE FAMILY FUN 2017

With an array of exhibition and performances, please do join us to celebrate the wealth of creativity by older people from the local area. The Gwanwyn club is a full day arts club for the over 50s that offers a programme of weekly events to create opportunities for people to meet new friends and try out a whole range of new creative activities and experiences. Inspired by other clubs across the UK such as Meet Me at the Albany in London; described as ‘the kind of stereotypesmashing thing that sticks two knitting needles up at anyone who dares assume a day centre for older people is about flower arranging and endless cups of tea.’ Gwanwyn has offered this refreshing attitude to older people in and around Aberystwyth since May and ZEST is a culmination of their work created over the past six months. If you are interested in finding out more please contact Gwanwyn on gwanwyn@ agecymru.org.uk www.gwanwyn.org.uk Gwanwyn Clubs are supported by Welsh Government and Arts Council of Wales
