English on Thursday 14th June 2018

The world turns - and people and language move with it. We’re living in an age of mass migration. The linguists tell us we’re moving towards a future in which people speak multiple languages and create new ones to sit in the gaps.

National Theatre Wales and Quarantine’s new production, performed by Jonny Cotsen, is inspired by the theatricality of language lessons, and from conversations with migrants in Wales and across the UK who learn English for all kinds of reasons – for business, for pleasure, for survival, to take part, to pass the test…

English asks what happens when we move to another country and don’t really know how to say who we are, how to disagree, how to be in love, how to be funny - how to say what life is really about.

Made in Wales but with a global perspective, this performance pulls pop songs apart, tears grammar to pieces and constructs a contemporary Babel that invites all the languages in the room to be heard.

Age Guidance: 14+


National Theatre Wales a Quarantine

Gyda Chanolfan Mileniwm Cymru

Rhan o Ŵyl y Llais 2018

Mae’r byd yn troi - ac mae pobl ac ieithoedd yn symud gydag ef. Rydym yn byw mewn oes o fudo torfol. Mae’r ieithyddion yn dweud wrthym ein bod yn symud tuag at ddyfodol lle mae pobl yn siarad sawl iaith ac yn creu rhai newydd i lenwi’r bylchau.

Mae cynhyrchiad newydd National Theatre Wales a Quarantine, wedi’i berfformio gan Jonny Cotsen, wedi’i ysbrydoli gan yr elfen theatrig mewn gwersi iaith, a chan sgyrsiau gyda mudwyr yng Nghymru ac ar draws y DU sy’n dysgu Saesneg am bob math o resymau - ar gyfer busnes neu bleser, er mwyn goroesi, i gymryd rhan, i basio’r prawf…

Wedi’i greu gan Quarantine a’r perfformiwr Jonny Cotsen, sydd yn Fyddar ac yn dysgu arwyddiaith, mae English yn gofyn beth sy’n digwydd pan fyddwn yn symud i wlad arall heb wybod sut i ddweud pwy ydym ni, sut i anghytuno, sut i fod mewn cariad, sut i fod yn ddoniol - sut i ddweud sut beth yw bywyd mewn gwirionedd.

Wedi’i wneud yng Nghymru ond gyda pherspectif byd-eang, mae’r perfformiad hwn yn tynnu caneuon pop yn ddarnau, yn rhwygo gramadeg yn deilchion ac yn creu Babel gyfoes sy’n cynnig gwrandawiad i bobl iaith yn yr ystafell.
