Artists supported in 2017
Of our audience wants to see more theatre, circus and performing arts at Green Man
Collectives and artists showcased each year
“It’s really important that you’ve given us the chance to grow as a company that sits between not “emerging” anymore, but not yet one of the “established” companies. The ethos of Green Man Trust is one that we felt already, but our work together has put us in a position to focus on that more in our day-to-day business, and speak with greater clarity about it.”
Since the introduction of Performing Arts to the Festival at Green Man Festival in 2014, the programme has developing into a incredible offering of Welsh talent, showcasing the very best that Wales has to offer. The programme now offers a strong mix of interactive walkabout activity and static performance, existing touring work and bespoke commissioned shows.
In 2017, the Back of Beyond stage became a base of artistic expression for Green Man goers to take refuge in, set amongst the ever-inspiring backdrop of the Black Mountains and just next to the Green Man himself. The stage showcased incredible, newly commissioned performances for 2017 and was host to full day programme of performances and shows, while Walkabout performing arts delighted audiences as they wandered across site. As popular as ever, Walkabout extended Back of Beyond across the whole Festival with surreal roving theatre.
“It always great to be part of a melting pot of local creativity and Green Man seems the hub of this”
