“Directed by Joao Garcia Miguel.
Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard is a beautiful and inspiring text about the end of something and at the same time the beginning.

Madame Ranevskaya is a spoiled aging aristocratic lady, who returns from a trip to Paris to face the loss of her magnificent Cherry Orchard estate after a default on the mortgage. In denial, she continues living in the past, deluding herself and her family, while the beautiful cherry trees are being axed down by the re-possessor Lopakhin, her former serf, who has his own agenda. 

This production has been produced as part of Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s Professional Development Project which has involved the company being in residence for a period of 6 weeks. The production
will go on to tour to Taliesin Arts Centre in Swansea on Friday 29 October.

Director Joao Garcia Miguel is from Lisbon and is renowned throughout Europe for his cutting edge adaptations of classic works. “

Last Look

Six months ago when I took these pictures I felt overwhelmed with the feeling of abundance that was pouring out of the blossom trees.  It looked like the Goddess of compassion was gently giving over and over.  I was reminded that every spring the trees make an incredible effort to transform, making the world intensely beautiful – they just do it, every year, and it’s so magnificent it could make you cry. 
Paradise here and now.

You know I’ve been thinking about writing that ever since, in the back of my mind most of the time.  And now we’ve got Autumn…
