It's Introduce Yourself Weekend on Stage 32! Who are you? What have you been working on? We want to know! Head over to the Introduce Yourself Lounge and network with your fellow creatives - you never know when you'll make a connection that will change your career!
Hello fellow creatives, I'm Rhia and I am Welsh Actor/Writer/Designer/Artist living near Cardiff, South Wales.
My aim in life has always been a storyteller and this has manifested itself through many creative avenues.
I recently graduated with BA (Hons) Theatre and Drama at Atrium (Cardiff School for Cultural and Creative industries). During my time on this course, I studied theatre performance - scripted and devised, improvisation, horror performance etc, film studies, scriptwriting, directing and contextual studies. Before this I did a one year course studying fine art, costume/fashion design/illustration and design.
My acting experience is limited to the theatre work I did while at University - as I had never had acted before this. I am very interested in working in all mediums - theatre/tv/film/voice - so any opportunity is a great one.
As a writer, I have written scripts for theatre, radio, film, television and web content. The latter of which I hope to soon start filming within this coming year. My most current projects are:
Maddie and Madeleine - Horror/Psychological Thriller - Feature Film inspired by 'A Tell Tale Heart' by Edgar Allan Poe.
Chronic - Short film about living with chronic illness.
The Nest - Black Comedy - Play - about a mother and daughter living in a little town and needing to get out.
As part of a writing partnership, I co-created and wrote:
31-10: a tv series that politicises the vampire myth. COMPLETED (Episode 1 & 2).
Flat 666: a comedy based around flat sharing university students. COMPLETE
Home: The Musical: based on an unusual and dysfunctional "family." IN PROGRESS.
If anyone wants to collaborate on anything please feel free to drop me a message - I'm looking to build a network of creative who want to make great, character driven content and just generally tell stories.
Unique traits: I've been told I'm a natural mimic. I also have a passive knowledge and understanding of Welsh and French.
Flat 666 Comedy A comedy set in Wales that follows eight students as they adapt to the stresses of student life.
31-10 Drama ⋄ Fantasy A modern dramatic supernatural series focused on the interconnecting lives of a vampire Queen and a cynical psychologist turned vampire, as one struggles to deal with global vampire anarchy and the other tries to come to terms with her new life. When their paths cross will Monarchy, Apathy, Anarchy, or Psychology prevail? Or will lasting deceits from past centuries destroy everything?
