My Body Welsh

Pontio, Invertigo Theatre Company & The Conker Group present

My Body Welsh

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 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.

Supported by Arts Council Wales, London Welsh Centre, and Pontio.
