Alys Byrne
by Alys Byrne, Applied Theatre Practitioner

Alys ByrneMy name is Alys Byrne and I am lucky enough to be starting 2016 in my new role as Applied Theatre Practitioner and facilitating the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation funded project “Performing Change”, taking over from Ali Franks who has successfully driven the project forward for the last year.

I have been a Theatre Practitioner for 16 years and during this time have been lucky enough to work for fantastic organisations such as UCAN Productions, The Sherman Theatre, Wales Millennium Centre, St David’s Hall, Hijinx Theatre and many schools and colleges throughout South Wales.

I have worked with Valley and Vale Community Arts for the last few years in a freelance capacity working on some great community projects and am now looking forward to creating thought-provoking and policy-changing Theatre for and with young people throughout South Wales.
