Introducing Tracy Harris – Writer, Performance Artist and Everything In Between..
We’re thrilled to be in conversation with Swansea-born, Cardiff-resident Tracy Harris about taking on the role of dramaturge for Cosmic Fear or The Day Brad Pitt Got Paranoia…
In preparation for the work, and as we look at getting closer to nature and plan for the survival of the human race, we ask Tracy what five items she would carry in her rucksack on a hike through the woods:
1. A torch
2. A warm sleeping bag (I hate being cold)
3. Lighter (to make a fire- (I think I got taught once in brownies!)
4. Food and drink supplies
5. A map (not that I’m any good at reading them- but figured it may be a good chance to learn)
Tracy’s a writer, performance artist and filmmaker. Her plays include Past Away (Sgript Cymru) The Cloak Room (Sherman Cymru/ Mighty Theatre, Washington) and No Vacancies (Sherman Cymru) which has been commissioned by spinning head films as a feature film. The Reading, the short film she produced, was selected for the short film corner at Cannes Film festival. Along with Chris Rushton, she directed and produced the 9 part BBC Bafta nominated documentaries Swansea Living On The Streets and most recently Selling Sex to Survive about prostitution in South Wales. Her first one woman show Lost, Found, Stolen was performed at Sprint Festival at Camden’s people’s Theatre and Volcano Theatre. Her second show Bottled, developed with Greg Wohead and Justin Cliffe was at Experimentica, Chapter and Bristol Ferment. She is the recipient of the 2015 Creative Wales award, where she is researching and developing her practise in Documentary theatre and is currently working with Theatr Iolo on 20-16, a documentary theatre piece for teenagers.
We like Tracy a lot, and we want to guarantee her being able to work with us. So, with a matter of hours to go – pledge your support now!
