The Submerged Cathedral – A Tribute to Debussy
Thursday 6:30 – Bangor
Pontio, Theatr Bryn Terfel
Claude Debussy in music, pictures and words
Iwan Llewelyn-Jones piano
Bethan Rhys Roberts presenter
A special tribute to one of the twentieth century’s charismatic composers, Claude Debussy, and an opportunity for audiences of every age and background to experience his unique musical vision. Debussy’s music is introduced in a theatrical context which combines visual and literary elements, asking who was this remarkable man and who and what were his main influences, ranging from the sublime to the every day. It was these that stimulated him to compose some of the most colourful and popular works of the twentieth century, with titles such as ‘Clair de lune’, ‘Fireworks’, ‘Goldfish’ and the ‘Underwater Cathedral’.
The pianist Iwan Llewelyn-Jones will be performing a cross-section of Debussy’s solo works for the piano. Jointly, the broadcaster and television presenter, Bethan Rhys Roberts, will provide an insight into the musical content, with readings in French, Welsh and English, as well as articles from Debussy’s own writings.Pontio, Bangor University, Deiniol Road, Bangor, Gwynedd, LL57 2TQ

In Conversation with John Boyne
Pontio, Theatr Bryn Terfel
John Boyne, one of Ireland’s finest contemporary writers joins us for an evening in conversation with Jon Gower.
Author of ten novels for adults and five for younger readers, including The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas which was made into a hugely successful film ten years ago, and last year’s The Heart’s Invisible Furies, described by Simon Humphreys as ‘Savvy, witty and achingly sad, this is a novelist at the top of his game.’
John Boyne is well respected and admired by critics and readers alike. He will be talking to Jon Gower about his life and work, and about his latest book, A Ladder to the Sky, a novel about literary ambition and how easy it is to achieve the world if you are prepared to sacrifice your soul.
There will be a post talk Q&A. Also, Palas Print will be selling the author’s publications and there will be a signing session near Ffynnon bar.

Saturday – 11:30 and 2:30 – Bangor
Imagine being far, far from home and all alone, arriving in a remote snow-bound village, surrounded by dense forest and strange noises. This is how Yana’s story begins. She can’t understand a word anyone says and the other children tease her with tales of mythical mountain monsters. Then things start to get really hairy …
Featuring exquisite music, Arctic landscapes and a cast of extraordinary puppets, Yana and the Yeti is aimed at family audiences (5+). This is a dark, funny and poignant tale of a small child’s determination to be understood and her discovery that friends can come in the most unexpected shapes and sizes.
This show was made in Northern Norway, above the arctic circle, where Yetis still exist.
FREE post-show puppet making workshop with Eleri Jones
