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 Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch 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.
