National Theatre Wales receives major Gulbenkian performance grant

National Theatre Wales is the recipient of a major grant from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation for the creation of a new, high-quality and spectacular production which will be led by four young Somali artists from the Butetown area of Cardiff.

Worth £175,000 over two years, the grant will support the development of an innovative performance piece in which leading professionals collaborate with disadvantaged communities.
