I was recently awarded the Saunders Lewis Memorial Fund. Below I’ve written a brief outline of the project.
Comparisons between Wales and Catalonia are not uncommon in political or sociolinguistic contexts but this is yet to be explored in relation to the theatre traditions of both nations. The research stemming from this project will begin to address this by comparing Sergi Belbel a playwright from Catalonia with Aled Jones Williams a Welsh playwright.
I will begin by considering why Belbel and Jones Williams are considered the leading playwrights within their theatrical traditions before exploring some parallels and differences between the work of both playwrights. I’m sure that I’ll be sharing more on this blog soon.
