Here’s another of our producers… Deborah Keyser. Deborah will be involved in the break out session looking at Booking A Tour.
Producers’ Place #4: Meet The Producers is this coming Saturday. Some tickets are still available here:
|How do you describe what you do?||My role as Director of Creu Cymru is diverse… at any one time we’re producing and managing tours, brokering relationships between makers and presenters, facilitating consortium working, developing new productions/events, delivering Continual Professional Development for our members, connecting with international networks, consulting with ACW…|
|How did you get started?||A circuitous route: from performing, through working for the BBC, stints in journalism and PR, to opera producing, orchestra management, festival administration… and plop into the Welsh presenting sector.|
|What work are you proudest of?||So many fantastic projects – but most recently, being part of the team that gave Creu Cymru a new, very relevant direction following the ACW investment review of 2010.|
|What’s been the most challenging?||Being part of the team that gave Creu Cymru a new direction following the ACW investment review of 2010!|
|What’s the best piece of advice you could give someone wanting to do what you do?||Listen; talk (not at the same time); think; understand; plot; DO.|
|What’s your ambition for theatre from Wales?||That more makers are enabled to make world-class work; that makers and presenters collaborate to develop that work and to thrill more and more (and more) people with it. Amen.|
