It seeks to provide support and collaboration with, partners; projects; artists and ideas in order to initiate high quality performance placing writing and writers at it’s core.
Scriptography Productions has produced two script-in-hand readings; Beginnings and the Town with No Traffic Wardens with the Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s Writing for Performance group.
In November 2012 it produced it’s first full production, a pilot project of a new full length play of To Kill a Machine by Catrin Fflur Huws, a play about war-time code breaker Alan Turing who was charged with gross indecency and sentenced to chemical castration. The play premiered at Aberystwyth Arts Centre and was also performed in the Sherman Cymru Foyer and at Swansea University as part of a science cafe event celebrating the life of Alan Turing.
In 2013 Scriptography Productions will be producing a multi-platform project of audio narrative drama from a web platform using social media links called EarCandy.
Future plans also include a larger tour of To Kill a Machine including a participation programme developed around engagement with the scientific breakthroughs of Alan Turing’s work and a new writing festival in Aberystwyth.
