Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s vision is to place Welsh-language theatre at the heart of the nation. We create and present theatre productions that aim to enthral and entertain our audiences and fire their imagination.
We also provide development opportunities that will nurture and inspire the next generation of Welsh-speaking theatre artists, and offer creative opportunities for people across Wales to experience the transformative impact of the arts.
The ConnectUp partner Theatr Gen, the Welsh National Theatre, is using an app, which translates its plays into English or Welsh on the smartphone (spoken and as written text). “Sibrwd” – Welsh for “whisper” – is an app in its beta stage. ConnectUp wants to build on the experiences of Theatr Gen with “Sibrwd” and develop it into ConnectApp.
