Ceredigion Museum and the Centre for Performance Research (CPR)
Present


Friday 22 and Saturday 23 July, 8pm
Ceredigion Museum

100 Years in Boxes: As Worlds Fall Apart
A performance/ installation created and directed by Richard Gough

While stands the Coliseum, Aberystwyth shall stand;
When falls the Coliseum, Aberystwyth shall fall;
And when Aberystwyth falls -- the world.

(After Childe Harold's Pilgrimage by Lord Byron,)

The Colosseum of ancient Rome is in ruins today but its former glory can
still be imagined. The Coliseum of contemporary Aberystwyth is glorious
and celebrates its first centenary but its ruins can still be imagined.

In the Colosseum contests were staged between gladiators and between
people and animals and the vast arena could be flooded for mock sea
battles. In the Coliseum today miniature skirmishes, like fights and
dance, take place between people and objects and for these two evenings of
100 Years in Boxes: As Worlds Fall Apart, the secret life of objects is
revealed, the cabinets are opened, chaos unfolds.

Taking the centenary both as thematic springboard and celebratory focus,
this unusual event will be part-installation, part-promenade and
part-performance; a fabulous, partially-edible installation, responding to
the spaces, exhibitions and displays of the Ceredigion Museum.

100 Years in Boxes: As Worlds Fall Apart will inhabit and subvert the
corridors and galleries of the museum, stirring the dark waters of the
past and creating a 'ghost train' of hauntings and evocations; a promenade
through the Coliseum, encountering fragments, figments and absences,
taking inspiration from the world of surrealist artist Joseph Cornell.

Amgueddfa Ceredigion

100 Years in Boxes: As Worlds Fall Apart
Perfformiad/ mewnosodyn a grwyd ac a gyfarwyddwyd gan Richard Gough

While stands the Coliseum, Aberystwyth shall stand;
When falls the Coliseum, Aberystwyth shall fall;
And when Aberystwyth falls -- the world.

(Ar l Childe Harold's Pilgrimage gan yr Arglwydd Byron,)

Mae Coliswm Rhufain yr henfyd yn adfeilion heddiw ond eto gallwn
ddychmygu ei ogoniant gynt. Mae Coliswm Aberystwyth yr oes sydd ohoni yn
ogoneddus ac mae'n dathlu ei ganmlwyddiant ond eto gallwn ddychmygu ei
adfeilion.

Yn y Coliswm llwyfennid gornestau rhwng gladiatoriaid a rhwng pobol ac
anifeiliaid a gellid boddi'r arena enfawr ar gyfer brwydrau mr cogio. Yn
y Coliswm heddiw bydd mn sgarmesoedd, fel brwydrau a dawns, yn digwydd
rhwng pobol a phethau ac am y ddwy noson yma o 100 Years in Boxes: As
Worlds Fall Apart, dadlennir bywyd cudd pethau, agorir y cabinetau, mae
hi'n mynd yn annhrefn.

Gan gymryd y ganrif yn sbringfwrdd thematig ac yn ganolbwynt dathlu ill
dau, bydd y digwyddiad anarferol yma'n rhan-fewnosodyn, yn rhan-bromend
ac yn rhan-berfformiad; yn fewnosodyn bendigedig, rhannol-fwytadwy, yn
ymateb i fannau, arddangosfeydd a sioeau Amgueddfa Ceredigion.

Bydd 100 Years in Boxes: As Worlds Fall Apart yn cyfaneddu ac yn gwyrdroi
coridorau ac orielau'r amgueddfa, gan gyffroi dyfroedd duon y gorffennol a
chan greu 'trn bwganod' o ysbrydion yn cerdded a chonsuriadau; promend
trwy'r Coliswm, yn taro ar ddernynnau, rhithiau ac absenoldebau, a
ysbrydolwyd gan fyd yr artist swrreal Joseph Cornell.
