Y Capel yn falch iawn o groesawu Melissa Pasut a Andrew Leslie Hooker.

Anoikis is a contemporary dance company dedicated to choreographic and electroacoustic research.  We are committed to performing radical new works that seek to explore the sense of rhizomatic shadow-space that exists between the accepted boundaries (cultural, social, political, economical, historical and psychological) of traditional artistic practice and consumption.  The company has presented work internationally since 2002 and is currently based in North Wales, UK. ‘

Bydd y breswylfa yn rhoi cyfle i Sianed ac Ailsa i gael amser i gydweithio yn greadigol ar waith newydd a ysbrydolwyd gan y profiad o’r wlad o gwmpas. Cyfle i ddatblygu yn ddyfnach eu sgiliau arbennig o addasu ac arbrofi yn annisgwyl. Cynhelir cyngerdd o’r defnydd newydd yn Capel Y Graig yn y Gwanwyn o 2018.
