Good News From the Future brings together a group of mature performers that includes pioneering physical theatre practitioners, a clutch of people who haven’t performed for a long time, and some people who’ve only recently started.
The company was formed after a series of public workshops in the summer of 2014, that recovered and drew on physical theatre exercises and interactive improvisation techniques developed by Cardiff-based theatre companies in the 1970s.
Its current performers include past members of Brith Gof, Cardiff Laboratory Theatre, Made in Wales, Man Act and Theatr Iolo.
CURRENT PERFORMERS: Gilly Adams; Pat Adams; Steve Bowkett; Anna Brazier; Pauline Down; Jill Greenhalgh; Annie Grove-White; Phil Harris; Miranda James; Yvette Vaughan Jones; Jill Kirkpatrick; Kevin Lewis; Richard Huw Morgan; Anthony Ollmant; Jennie Pickstone; Hilary Ramsden; Shirley Stansfield; Simon Thorne; Maggie Valasquez
FORMER MEMBERS: David Alston; Hilary Beckett; Linda James; Elaine Paton; Nigel Watson
CONVENOR: Mike Pearson
GNFTF is based at Chapter (Arts Centre) in Cardiff, Wales.
