Story

What we are raising money for

We are raising money as we are representing Wales in an International creative,cultural exchange platform between Malta,Romania and Wales(UK).The group is invited as young up and coming artists to perform work that they have created in the German State Theatre in Timisoara Romania, the now European Capital of Culture 2021.They will also have the opportunity to take part in workshops with the industry professionals involved. We have successfully managed to raise £2500 so far and need to raise a total of £4000 more to reach our goal.

What we will be doing

We will be performing alongside two professional creative companies based in Romania and Malta called Un-fold Motion Dance Company and Moveo Dance Company Malta. We have been able to secure time to have two workshops with the National Opera Ballet Timisoara and contemporary professional artists from Moveo dance company.Alongside this the young people will take part in tours of the National Opera house and to explore the fantastic museums, culture and architecture in the beautiful city Timisoara now holding the title of European capital of culture Romania.

What we will be performing

We have a 25 minute show called Kokoro ( Meaning the connection of mind, body and soul) were we are performing four works created and performed by the young people, which will be a duet called Soul Movement performed and created by two mentees from the Project Action Potentials mentorship program Tayla Smith and Jonathan Loimo also dance students at Middlesex University London, based on soul.

Two group pieces performed by youth artists from Project Action Potentials youth company (Cardiff/Pontypridd, Wales) called Courage Calls To Courage based on The history of the suffragettes and Distorted Reflection based on body image & how it is affecting the young peoples generation with artists Shakira, Kirsten, Kai, Mya, Naimh, Stephanie, Isabelle,Tiana,Teghan.

Finally their will be a solo performed by student artist Kirsten Roberts also a dance student at University fo South Wales Cardiff ,called Grey Sensations which is an exploration of the emotions and the question is everything really black and white ? and what and where are the grey areas?

Why you should support this

This is a fantastic creative, cultural and artistic educational international exchange experience, for these young people from community first areas.That will enrich their knowledge of the creative industries, strengthen their social ,cultural, linguistic and geographical enthusiasm for learning. That will encourage them to build on their ,communication & networking researching ,creative thinking, resilience and educational skills.

This is a unique opportunity that the young people would no be able to take part in with out support though fundraising and donations.

We are currently running fundraisers and sponsored activities to try and reach our fundraising goal, to allow these talented young people to take part in this opportunity and represent young up and coming talent and their country Wales.

If you would be so kind to sponsor as little or as much as you wish we would be very grateful as we are one step closer to flying to Romania, Timisoara to fulfil this opportunity we have been offered.
