"Penpynfarch is one of those rare places where improvisors working intensively can delve deeper into their personal journeys and public faces. The work in this safest of environments has ,over the past years been as deep and rich as the landscape that surrounds us. We have danced, laughed, cried, eaten (very well) played sumo on the beach and shouted at the sky."
- Adam Benjamin
"Penpynfarch is an invaluable facility...It's a great place to get away to, where you can really focus on what you want to explore and achieve,
undistracted by the usual stuff that's going on in the city."
- Guy Dartnell
The facilities and idyllic location perfectly supported our creative process.
We would thoroughly recommend Penpynfarch and look forward to returning in the future."
- Fecund Theatre
“Pen Pynfarch is a tender place to immerse oneself in the forest and farm land of Wales. This fecundity nourishes the senses and helps bring alive a naturally resonant community. It is a place quiet enough for creativity to flourish and in which the movements within the body find reflection in the natural world.”
- Caryn McHose, Resources In Movement, New Hampshire, US
“Penpynfarch is set up to develop a deeper understanding and care for the living body, alongside care for the
rhythms and needs of land . Set at the head of a steeply wooded valley, at the end of a road, it’s a unique place
to work together, a place where a passionate care for the ecology of our lives infuses everything
that happens.” - Miranda Tufnell
