Angharad is a freelance Theatre/Opera and Film director with a passion for Creative Learning and empowering young people.
Angharad was born and bred in Porth in the Rhondda Valley. Having trained as an actress at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, she then won a scholarship to train as a singer at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Having worked as a performer for over 10 years, the directing bug took hold. She has been working solidly as theatre/film/opera director since 2009.
Her directorial work spans from writing, developing and directing work for young audiences to directing Opera for the Welsh National Opera. She has worked extensively with Youth Theatres across the Country and continues to work with organisations such as Wales International Academy of Voice as an acting coach. She is a regular guest lecturer in Universities across Wales, specialising in script writing and is voice coach at Trinity St David’s BA Performance Course in Cardiff.
Alongside her directorial work, Angharad holds a great passion for Creative Learning. She has been a Creative Learning practitioner since graduating over 15 years ago, working with schools, community groups, Post-16 and PRU Units. Concentrating on attitudes and aptitudes as well as the development of skills, a cross fertilisation of methodologies is at the heart of her practice. She is currently a Creative Agent for the Arts Council of Wales Lead Creative School Scheme.
