Company: Pontio, Invertigo Theatre Company & The Conker Group
By Tara Robinson & Steffan Donnelly
A Mythstery of Skeletal Proportions
One tall, skinny Welshman with an agenda of national importance: there’s a truth behind every good story.
Jones and Davis are fighting.
There's a skeleton in the well.
There’s more to being Welsh than having the accent, isn't there?
Accompanied by a live soundscape artist creating a river of sounds in front of you, join performer Steffan Donnelly on a watery lyrical thriller as he guides you through Llanfair¬pwllgwyngyll¬gogery¬chwyrn¬drobwll¬llan¬tysilio¬gogo¬goch and into his world of slippery small-town myth-making.
Pontio’s new associate company, the award-winning Invertigo Theatre (Y Tŵr, My People), and The Conker Group’s Tara Robinson, present My Body Welsh - a vibrant, part-bilingual piece of contemporary theatre that investigates the role storytelling plays in constructing national identity.
Supported by Arts Council Wales, London Welsh Centre, and Pontio.
