WHAT IS IT?
“This is a platform for connectivity and expression, the hotbed for all the work we make at Fran Wen. I am totally inspired by their passion and commitment as they utilise space and time to redefine theatre and communicate with the world. The company (and the work) is honest, complex, surprising, compassionate and colourful”Gethin Evans, Frân Wen Artistic Director.
“It was completely different to anything else I’ve done. Everyone says there no such thing as wrong in creating, but with Frân Wen I felt this for the first time. Community is the best word to describe it, not one person’s ideas was more important than another. Team working at its best. “
