Saethu Cwningod / Shooting Rabbits.

Wedi ei ddatblygu mewn cydgynhyrchiad gyda Theatr Genedlaethol a Sherman Theatre.

Developed in coproduction with Theatr Genedlaethol and Sherman Theatre.

Saethu Cwningod / Shooting Rabbits bydd y prosiect cyntaf gan gwmni newydd Cymraeg, Powder House. Trwy lygaid rhyw 200 o wirfyddolwyr Cymraeg aeth i ymladd fel rhan o’r Brigadau Rhyngwladol yn ystod y Rhyfel Cartref yn Sbaen 1936-1939, mi fydd y prosiect yn ymchwilio’r cynnydd mewn cydymdeimlad tuag at wleidyddiaeth asgell dde, ymynysol yn lleol ac ar draws Ewrop, trwy adroddiadau hanesyddol a chyfoes. Mae’r prosiect yn annelu i gwestiynnu perthynas Cymru gyda’r gymuned Ewropeaidd a sut mae gweithredau rhyngwladol yn effeithio’r wlad a’r bobol adref. 

Saethu Cwningod / Shooting Rabbits will be the first project by new Welsh company, Powder House. Through the eyes of the 200 or so Welsh volunteers who fought in the International Brigades during the Spanish Civil War 1936-1939, the project will investigate the rise of right-wing, isolationist sentiment at home and across Europe, in historical and contemporary accounts. The project aims to question Wales’ relationship with the European community and how international actions shape the country and people at home.
