I had the pleasure of attending the open rehearsals for the theatre production Kate in Volcano Theatre in Swansea last week. The play premiered at the National Eisteddfod in Cardiff this year. Check out some more of my photos of the play here.
This week NAWR had the pleasure of realising Philip Corner's Piano Activites piece with Volcano Theatre in Swansea. Volcano had an old piano that had succumbed to wood worm and was due to be thrown away. Instead, the colloboration between Volcano and NAWR resulted in the piano giving its final public performance on Swansea High Street! Check out the rest of the photos of the piano's destruction here.
Brazilian artists Marina Amaral colourises ancient and historical photos to make them look as realistic as possible. The long list of photos converted include many historical figures like Rasputin and Teddy Roosevelt as well as photographs from major historical moments such as Franz Ferdinand's wedding 30 minutes before he was shot in 1914. Check out the amazing photos here.
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope captured some fantastic images of Saturn and Mars while the planets were in opposition to Earth, meaning they were directly across from Earth in their celestial orbits.
Photojournalist Michael Bradley has created a series focussing on the Māori Tā Moko, the permanent face markings of the New Zealand Māori. In the 1850s, photographs taken by settlers and developed using wet plate techniques caused the face markings to not appear in the final photographs.
Founder of Mythical Ireland Anthony Murphy discovered a new henge close to the Newgrange henge site in Brú na Bóinne in County Meath. The discovery was made using a drone to survey the area during the prolonged hot weather which caused the cropmarks of the henge to become visible. The structure dates back to 3,000 BC.
This past week, we welcomed Rachel Ní Chuinn and Mia Zabelka to Swansea. Rachel and Mia performing some amazing music for us at the NAWR ANOIS #6 concert. Check out the other photos from the concert here.
