Thursday 20th - Thursday 27th March - Aberystwyth, Newtown, Harlech, Cardiff. Inspired by author Caradoc Evans’ controversial collection of short-stories, My People, this new dance theatre production sees Gwyn Emberton and his company of international dancers delve into the dark, turbulent, and oftentimes mythical world of Manteg. Combined with a new cinematic score by composers Benjamin Talbott and Victoria Ashfield (Y Gwyll/Hinterland), the haunting world of Evans’ most memorable characters unravels, as sexual and gender politics collide with social and religious hierarchy.
