This evening’s production brings together a rich mix of stories passed down from generation to generation.

Mae Dynamix yn hapus i gyflwyno ei perfformiad cyntaf o Hen Hanesion Gorllewin Cymru, sef blas ar gyfoeth o straeon traddodiadol yr ardal sydd wedi cael eu hadrodd gan genedlaethau dros y blynyddoedd.
