Sibrwd – Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru

The project aims to explore and answer the problem ‘How to engage successfully Welsh learners and non-welsh-speakers as audience members, in line with the artistic vision, without major budget implications or affecting the experience of Welsh-speakers?’ Surr-titling, scene synopsis, pre-show talks are all measures to give access to non-Welsh-speaking audiences but they are costly and provide limited audience experience. A solution is to develop an audio description app called Sibrwd for audiences to fully access the spoken word of any given performance, whatever
language they speak.


Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru: Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru (ThGC) is the Welsh-language national theatre of Wales; producing a varied programme of large scale tours, community projects, site specific work, and imaginative and ambitious activity throughout Wales and beyond. As well as classical theatre and recognised texts, ThGC explores new and alternative ways of presenting theatre.
