{150} & Galesa Mae Celfyddydau Rhyngwladol Cymru wedi cefnogi Marc Rees, Sian Thomas a Roger Williams i fynd ar ymweliadau ymchwil â Phatagonia yn rhan o’r broses o ddatblygu cynhyrchiad graddfa fawr ar gyfer dathliadau Patagonia 150 yn 2015 rhwng dwy theatr Genedlaethol Cymru. Mae’r ymweliadau ymchwil a datblygu hyn yn 2012, 2013 a 2015 wedi bod yn hanfodol i ddeall cyd-destun cymhleth y gwladychwyr o Gymru yn yr Ariannin, ac i ddeall hanes a hunaniaeth Archentwyr o dras Cymreig ym Mhatagonia. Daeth yr holl waithat ei gilydd mewn cynhyrchiad newydd sbon {150}, wedi ei greu gan National Theatre Wales a Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru mewn cydweithrediad â S4C, a fcrewyd hefyd film Galesa:Patagonia 150 gan Joio.

Wales Arts International supported Marc Rees, Sian Thomas and Roger Williams to undertake research visits to Patagonia as part of the development process for a large scale production for Patagonia 150 celebrations in 2015 between Wales’s two National theatres. These research and development visits in 2012, 2013 and 2015 have been crucial in understanding the complex context of the Welsh settlers in Argentina, and understanding the history and identity of Argentineans in Patagonia with a Welsh heritage. The culmination of these visits comes together in a new piece of work in partnership between National Theatre Wales, and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru in association with S4C, in {150}, and the film Galesa:Patagonia 150 created by Joio.
