'The Performative Power of Words with Music'
On 27th May Emily took part in an exciting unveiling of compositions by students at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. The words were written by Kaite O'Reilly, playwright and dramaturg who received a Creative Wales Award from Arts Council Wales for work exploring 'The Performative Power of Words with Music'. The invited audience consisted of the Arts Council Wales and Music Theatre Wales. 'Because' composed by Ethnie Foulkes focussed on a character stuck between the 'normal' world and her psychological fears. The music created an uneasy atmosphere which constantly tested the audience.
